Who we partnered with?

65 Equity Partners partnered with (i) TDConnex’s CEO Thanga Venkatachalam and his senior management team, and (ii) Novo Tellus Capital Partners, a Singapore-based private equity firm specializing in the mid-market technology and industrial sectors, in the acquisition of 100% of TDConnex to support its continued pursuit of manufacturing excellence to serve global technology leaders.

What attracted us to the business?

We are attracted to TDConnex’s differentiated, market-leading and comprehensive engineering capabilities and its strong track record of manufacturing excellence. It is well-positioned to capitalize on secular tailwinds from global supply chain evolution, together with attractive end market demand driven by continued trends towards miniaturization, premiumization and the Internet of Things (IoT).

Our value creation strategy
