Computer manufacturers finalize merger


Ann Arbor, MIDynics and Ann Arbor Technologies have officially merged. The proposed union of the two leading industrial computer systems manufacturers was initially announced last summer. The agreement called for the two operations to join through the purchase of Ann Arbor Technologies’ assets and liabilities by Dynics for an undisclosed sum. The company keeps the Dynics name. Ed Gatt, owner and president of Dynics, remains as company president; James Drenning and Rick Barnich, principals and officers of Ann Arbor Technologies, serve on the corporate board and maintain executive positions.

The company has moved into a new 15,000-sq-ft facility and has a newly combined Web site. The space at 4330 Varsity Drive in Ann Arbor provides a large assembly area with an expanded heat chamber for burning-in systems and a dedicated technical service center. It also includes a fully equipped metal fabrication shop that allows the new firm to customize systems quickly, adapt to product changes, and offer turnkey solutions with system enclosures. The combined Dynics-Ann Arbor Technologies Web site puts products and support information from both companies in one location.


Dynics manufactures computer modules, flat panel touch screen monitors, integrated workstations, and rackmount computers, and offers turnkey, embedded, or standard operating systems. Ann Arbor Technologies manufactures rugged flat panel industrial computers and monitors used primarily for industrial automation applications.
