Motion Industries Inc., distributor of maintenance, repair and operation replacement parts, has completed the acquisition of Applied Machine and Motion Control Inc. (AMMC), a Kentucky-based supplier of motion control and automation products and services.

Founded in 1995, AMMC is headquartered in Park Hills, Kentucky, outside of Cincinnati. The majority of AMMC’s business comprises the markets of Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, western Pennsylvania and West Virginia. The company said its engineering and application expertise propels its specialty services, including motion control, drives, HMI, PC and embedded control, automation control, mechanical, robotics, motors and mechatronics.

“As a premier supplier to the Ohio River Valley area and beyond, AMMC and its talented people will be instrumental in furthering our growth strategy geographically and in the automation arena,” said Motion Industries President Randy Breaux. “In addition to broadening our offerings to customers, their go-to-market approach and line card are very similar to our other Mi Automation Solutions Group divisions, to which AMMC will be a nice complement.”

Mi Automation Solutions Group offerings to customers include control panels, conveyors, machine vision, motion control, network connectivity, pneumatics, robotics, aluminum extrusion, sensing I/O and other automation-related solutions.
