HBK’s Virtual Test Division

In July 2021, Concurrent Real-Time was purchased by Spectris, plc, and became part of its HBK Virtual Test Division. Spectris, plc specializes in precision instrumentation and controls, and employs over 7,500 worldwide. HBK is a Spectris platform business employing approximately 2,900 globally. In 2019, Spectris aligned a group of Virtual Testing companies as a division under its HBK platform since HBK already had a strong presence in physical testing and data acquisition.

HBK’s Virtual Test Division currently includes five companies that focus on providing real-time software, simulator, and hardware-in-the-loop solutions to virtually test products throughout the development cycle, helping companies accelerate innovation and reduce time-to-market, and improve their competitive advantage.
