Avtron Industrial Automation acquired by Nidec

Avtron Industrial Automation, an Independence, Ohio, manufacturer and designer of automation control products and services specializing in drive systems and encoders, announced that it has been acquired by Nidec, a global manufacturer of motors and electrical control systems with headquarters in Kyoto, Japan. Avtron was previously owned by Morgenthaler Private Equity. With more than 50 years of heavy industry experience, Avtron Industrial Automation will play a role in Nidec’s Application, Commercial, and Industrial Motor (ACIM) business growth in the U.S.

Avtron will continue to sell its drive systems and encoder products and will augment its product offering with complementary products from Ansaldo Sistemi Industriali S.p.A., an Italian drives, motors, and automation systems company that Nidec acquired in June. Avtron Aerospace, Inc. was not part of this transaction and will continue to operate under Avtron Holdings, Inc., owned by Morgenthaler Private Equity.
