Ametek Inc. has consolidated its motors, blowers, fans, pumps and motion control businesses into a new Advanced Motion Solutions (AMS) division.
Headquartered in Kent, Ohio, the new division includes the manufacturing, engineering, sales and marketing resources of four existing Ametek business units: Dynamic Fluid Solutions, Dunkermotoren, Floorcare and Specialty Motors and Motion Control Solutions in a single global business platform.
Among other applications, Ametek’s Dynamic Fluid Solutions offers blowers, fans, motors and pumps for heavy duty transportation applications and other commercial vehicles.
“The new AMS division allows us to better serve our expanding customer base worldwide and to provide them with a growing range of innovative products and motion control solutions,” said Matt French, senior vice president, Advanced Motion Solutions. “By consolidating those businesses into a single division, we can harness our extensive product and market presence and take full advantage of our global reach, which includes operations in North and South America, Europe and Asia.”
As part of the consolidation, Ametek’s Dynamic Fluid Solutions (DFS), whose brands include Windjammer brushless blowers and Nautilair combustion blowers; ROTRON transportation, pumps, motors, fans and regenerative blowers; and DurA-Tek Prime pumps has been combined with Ametek’s North American floor care and specialty motors businesses, which includes its Lamb Electric vacuum motors and blowers and Prestolite drive motors.
Similarly, Ametek’s European and Brazilian floor care and specialty motors businesses have been combined into a new M.A.E. (Motori Apparecchiature Elettriche) business unit based in Milan, Italy.
Dunkermotoren, GmbH, which manufactures a wide range of industrial motion control solutions for the factory automation, office machine, medical device and laboratory equipment markets, remains a stand-alone business unit based in Bonndorf, Germany.
The other business within AMS is Haydon Kerk/Pittman Motors. Haydon Kerk is a manufacturer of precision linear motion products and customized linear motion solutions. Pittman Motors offers a range of brush and brushless motors in various technologies, power ratings and options for a broad range of motion control applications, the company said.
