Motion Industries to acquire Numatic Engineering

Motion Industries has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Numatic Engineering, headquartered in Los Angeles.

The transaction is expected to close on Aug.1, 2017.

Founded in 1955, Numatic Engineering sells and supports automation components ranging from pneumatic automation to electrical motion controls, PLCs, VFDs, machine vision, sensors and industrial communication. For more than a decade, Numatic Engineering has been selling multiple lines of robotics, including end-of-arm tooling.

The company serves customers in California and Nevada.

"After meeting with several potential buyers, we found a cultural fit with Motion Industries and are very pleased to become part of their team," said Steve Leach, Numatic Engineering resident. "Becoming part of Motion assures that our employees will be well cared for in the future and that we will have the ability to continue to service our customers and represent our supplier partners in the way which they are accustomed. At the same time, we’ll now have access to even greater capabilities and resources, enabling us to accelerate the growth of our already successful business."

Tim Breen, president and CEO of Motion Industries, said, "We are very pleased with the addition of this well-established company. The acquisition of Numatic Engineering continues to build upon and complement our growth strategy in the area of industrial plant floor automation. Numatic Engineering will be operated as part of Motion’s Automation Solutions group, which includes Braas Company, acquired in October 2016. We are happy to welcome all Numatic Engineering employees to the Motion family, and we look forward to the contributions they will make to our company in upcoming years."
