Extrusion and converting machinery manufacturer Davis-Standard LLC has purchased Circonix Technologies LLC, a systems integrator that does drive- and control-system retrofits, and CX Systems, which does control panels and rigging for machinery relocations.
Davis-Standard said the acquisition of Circonix extends its aftermarket services, supports the company's ability to upgrade programmable logic controller, drive and mechanical systems on Davis-Standard and other brands of equipment — a potential market of thousands of existing extrusion lines worldwide.
Combining the companies' capabilities will help them improve functionality, process efficiency and profitability, said Bob Florence, vice president of global sales and marketing at Davis-Standard, which is based in Pawcatuck, Conn.
Circonix is based in Ringwood, N.J.
Davis-Standard also acquired CX Systems in Lincolntown, N.C., which does machinery relocations including rigging and installation, and electrical, mechanical and plumbing work.
CX Systems also provides electrical panels to Circonix, Florence said.
According to Paul Bilotti, sales and marketing manager of Circonix, the firm's organizational structure remains the same, including the existing employees and manufacturing facilities.
Davis-Standard announced the news Oct. 22. Terms were not disclosed.
