Platinum Equity has sold PCI Limited to Celestica Inc.

Singapore headquartered PCI is an engineering-led, electronics manufacturing service provider for leading customers in diverse end markets. The company’s design centers with strong capabilities in radio frequency technology, Internet of Things (IoT), human-machine interface and embedded systems complement the company’s extensive manufacturing capabilities in Asia. PCI is highly profitable and is expected to generate approximately $325 million in revenue in 2021.

Through the acquisition of PCI, Celestica will expand its design capabilities in key markets, further reinforcing Celestica’s approach towards engineering-focused engagements, including full product development in the areas of telematics, human-machine interface, IoT and embedded systems. The transaction is expected to add complementary, blue-chip customers to Celestica’s customer base and lead to multiple synergies, including commercial cross-selling opportunities between both companies, the acceleration of engineering product offerings and supply chain savings.

Lincoln International served as a financial advisor to Platinum Equity.

This transaction marks Lincoln’s third transaction with Celestica since April 2018 and Lincoln’s third closed EMS deal in the last eight months.
