Motion & Control Enterprises has acquired Ultimation Industries, and both companies are based in Michigan. The acquisition fits seemlessly into MCE's portfolio of material handling equipment and solutions.

Ultimation Industries provides highly engineered automation and material handling solutions as well as quick-ship distribution of material handling equipment products offered through an e-commerce platform to customers across the US, Latin America, and Europe. The company services a broad range of end markets, including energy, automotive, logistics, and vertical faming.

“We are excited to welcome Ultimation’s talented associates to the MCE family,” said Charles Hale, chairman & CEO of MCE. “Ultimation adds to our engineered solutions capability, provides an enhanced offering for the growing material handling market and allows us to significantly expand our e-commerce capabilities.”

“The transition to MCE allows us to continue our strategy of providing customers with greater access to quality material handling solutions,” said Jackie Canny, CEO of Ultimation.

“We plan to continue to offer our full range of products under the Ultimation brand following the transition, with the same quality products customers expect,” said Richard Canny, who will serve as president of the Ultimation division of MCE.

Ultimation was recognized in 2020 and 2022 as one of Inc. 5000’s fastest growing private companies in America. Ultimation was also named a 2022 Michigan 50 Companies to Watch by Michigan Celebrates Small Business.

MCE is a supplier of technical fluid power, automation, flow control, compressed air products, service, and repair solutions, serving more than 25,000 OEM and end-user customers from 41 facilities in 13 states.

This is the company's fourth acquisition for 2023, and 11th since 2020.
