Kaman Industrial Technologies Corporation’s subsidiary, Minarik Corporation, has acquired the assets of Automation Technology Inc. with locations in Salt Lake City, Utah, and Boise, Idaho. Automation Technology, considered being a strong motion control distributor in the Intermountain and Pacific Northwest trading areas, increases Minarik’s position in those markets adding to its locations in Portland, Seattle and Denver.

“We are very pleased to be able to continue Minarik’s market expansion with the acquisition of Automation Technology. Their knowledge of the market and technical expertise, coupled with the resources of Minarik and Kaman will offer the Intermountain and Northwest markets superior products with unequalled application support and service,” stated Andy Reid, Kaman’s Area VP, Minarik.

Steve Smidler, President of Kaman said, “The combination of our mutual talent and resources creates an organization unlike any other in the geography. The synergistic opportunity of combining Automation Technology’s technological strength in OEM markets with Kaman’s leadership position in power transmission and MRO markets, allows us to offer all customers in the area a value proposition unlike any other supplier in the market place. Automation Technology fits nicely with our acquisition last year of Minarik and is part of our overall expansion strategy to further increase our already national automation and control footprint.”
