NorthEdge supports Testronic’s acquisition of Check Disc Labs and Giant Interactive

We are pleased to announce that we have supported Testronic, part of the Catalis Group, to acquire US-based Check Disc Labs (CDL) and Giant Interactive.

CDL, a quality assurance provider for physical and digital media content, and Giant Interactive, a provider of award-winning entertainment and content delivery services, will join the Testronic family, adding 120 highly experienced engineers and executives to the team, as well as two new offices in Hollywood and New York.

The acquisitions allow Testronic to further expand its presence in the US, onboard new international clients, and add more talent and services to their operations, which will increase its ability to scale and respond to the demands of the market.

Jason Gish, President of Testronic’s Film & Television division said: “Testronic has been serving the film and television community for over 20 years and has a high reputation amongst some of the largest studios. Adding Giant and CDL not only increases our offering but also introduces new clients that we can service and adds incredible talent to our growing team. I am thrilled we’ve been able to create this alliance with two companies I have long known and respected.”

Ray Stenton, Managing Partner at NorthEdge added: “The acquisitions of CDL and Giant further reinforce Testronic’s position as a leading provider of content quality control and testing services. It’s an exciting time for the Catalis Group and we look forward to seeing the business continue to grow its global presence organically and through further strategic acquisitions over the coming years.

“CDL and Giant follow a series of other bolt-on acquisitions in NorthEdge’s Technology portfolio over the last 12 months, including Altia’s acquisition of VeriSaaS and Correla’s acquisition of CloudKB, and represent the third and fourth bolt-on acquisitions for Catalis since our investment in 2020. We are proud of the role we play supporting our companies deliver on their value creation plans, building better businesses as a result.”
