Force America, a fluid power manufacturer and distributor, announced it has acquired Mobile Equipment Systems, based in Tukwila, Wash. The company is a supplier of power-takeoffs, pumps and mobile hydraulic components to the northwestern United States. The acquisition is expected to extend Force America’s reach into the Pacific Northwest and provide local support for the company’s customers in the region. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Mobile Equipment Systems has served customers in the Pacific Northwest since 1993. The company specializes in Parker Chelsea and Parker hydraulic pump products, along with several other mobile hydraulic suppliers.

“Mobile Equipment Systems is an excellent strategic and cultural fit for our company,” said John Stenz, chairman and CEO of Force America Inc., Burnsville, Minn. “Their knowledgeable team, key customer relationships and long standing market presence provides a strong platform for long-term growth. Having this location also helps us better support several of our strategic customers based in the Pacific Northwest. Mobile Equipment Systems has a tenacious focus on putting the customer first. This aligns perfectly with the key values of the employee owners at Force America.”

Following the acquisition, Mobile Equipment Systems will reportedly continue to operate at its current location in Tukwila. Force America will expand the product offering and local support for the company’s entire product offering including those designed and manufactured by Force America’s Valve and Electrical divisions along with VariTech Industries and PreCise MRM.
