SINGAPORE, April 3, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- TDConnex, a leading global precision manufacturing business, announced today that it has become an independent, Singapore-based company following its acquisition by Novo Tellus and 65 Equity Partners.

TDConnex, which provides cutting-edge engineering and manufacturing services to global technology leaders in the USA and Europe, was previously incubated as a division of the Tongda Group ("TDG"), a Hong-Kong based diversified conglomerate listed on the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong.  Today, a group led by Novo Tellus and 65 Equity Partners completed the acquisition of 100% of the business from TDG, marking TDConnex's emergence as a newly independent global company, with independent operations, significant global scale, profitability, a highly liquid balance sheet, and a strong set of global leaders as customers.

"Today, TDConnex already operates at the frontier of the global precision manufacturing industry" said Keith Toh, Partner at Novo Tellus and Chairman of TDConnex, "and as the global technology industry demands billions of ever-smaller, lighter, and more intelligent products, TDConnex is well-positioned to help technology leaders create and deliver technology products that can touch almost every aspect of the digital consumer and enterprise experience."  Loke Wai San, Managing Partner and Co-Founder of Novo Tellus added, "we're proud of the energetic partnership we've built with TDConnex, culminating in this landmark investment in the business as it fledges into independent global operations."

Tan Chong Lee, CEO of 65 Equity Partners said: "65 Equity Partners is pleased to be backing Singapore-headquartered TDConnex and its management team in its continued pursuit of manufacturing excellence to serve global technology leaders. We look forward to working alongside Novo Tellus to support TDConnex as it continues to grow on a global scale."

CEO of TDConnex, Thanga Venkatachalam concluded: "today marks a historic milestone for TDConnex.  The management team and employees of TDConnex are deeply thankful to the Tongda Group for their sponsorship and their various contributions to our business since its founding.  We also acknowledge with heartfelt thanks our esteemed customers, for their close partnership and long-term support for TDConnex as we have grown over the years.
