MHS, a provider of material handling automation and software solutions, has announced that it has acquired eMotion Controls, a controls system integration and software company.
The acquisition follows a 15-year partnership between eMotion and MHS, which has seen the two companies work together on multiple projects around the world. According to MHS, the acquisition will help accelerate MHS’s Lifecycle Performance Services (LPS) growth plan.
eMotion provides its customers with material handling systems integration, hardware design, software and robotic solutions. The company works across multiple end-markets, including parcel sortation and fulfillment and distribution.
“It’s no secret that e-commerce is booming and hasn’t even begun to approach its peak,” said Scott McReynolds, chief executive officer, MHS. “Increasingly, logistics providers and retailers with major shipping operations are looking for end-to-end solutions that not only set them up for success but support their business on an ongoing basis – which is exactly what Lifecycle Performance Services does. eMotion Controls is an outstanding addition to our LPS division, made up of a wonderful bunch of people who we look forward to working well with into the future.”
