Sercel Acquires Two Technology Companies

Compagnie Generale de Geophysique's subsidiary, Sercel, has acquired two French technology companies through private transactions.

In February, Sercel acquired Orca Instrumentation. Located in Brest, France, the company develops and markets marine instrumentation and underwater data transmission systems. Orca Instrumentation employs 15 people.

In addition, Sercel has just completed the acquisition of Createch Industrie, specialized in borehole measurement tools, borehole seismic tools and permanent borehole sensors. The company is headquartered in the Paris area and employs 19 people.

Through these acquisitions, Sercel is continuing its expansion while strengthening its position in two growing areas: sea-floor seismic systems and borehole seismic tools.
