Motion Enters into Agreement to Purchase Allied Circuits

Motion has entered into an agreement to purchase Allied Circuits, a company specialising in electrical and automation solutions. The deal is anticipated to be finalized by the end of this month, pending standard closing conditions.

Headquartered in Buffalo, New York, Allied Circuits is engaged in the designing, manufacturing, and servicing of industrial control panels, electro-mechanical assemblies, robotic automation, and integrated systems. Established in 1987, the company caters to clients in Western and Upstate New York as well as Ontario, Canada, thanks to its proximity to the border. Its clientele spans various sectors, such as aerospace, automotive, filtration, fluid systems and plumbing, food and beverage, oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, semiconductors, and water and wastewater treatment facilities.

Following the acquisition, Allied Circuits will become a part of Motion’s business unit, Motion Automation Intelligence (Motion Ai). This addition brings a skilled workforce, ATEX certification capabilities, and an additional 20,000 square feet of production space, reinforcing Motion Ai’s existing presence in the region. Consequently, Motion Ai’s production space will surpass 100,000 square feet, with a workforce of 150 individuals dedicated to serving both current and prospective clients.

Chris Scinta, a Partner at Allied Circuits, expressed enthusiasm about the merger, citing alignment in business culture and values. He emphasised the benefits of expanded product and service offerings for their customers, acknowledging Motion’s industry leadership and hoping for a mutually beneficial integration of talent.

James Howe, President of Motion, echoed Scinta’s sentiments, affirming a commitment to growth alongside their clientele. He highlighted the synergy between the engineering teams, foreseeing enhanced support for automation requirements in the region. Howe emphasised the strategic importance of the acquisition in creating opportunities for customers, employees, and supplier partners alike.
