Kollmorgen has acquired MCS Engenharia Ltda. MCS is a leading Brazilian-based manufacturer and system integrator of standard and customized high performance motion controllers and complementary motion control components. Established in 1983 and headquartered in Tamboré, São Paulo, Brazil, MCS is the largest domestic supplier of precision motion controllers. The company was also the first Brazilian-based motion control manufacturer. The acquisition combines both companies’ industry-leading expertise, technology and products, making Kollmorgen resources readily available to Brazilian machine builders and making MCS resources available to Kollmorgen customers around the world. Day-to-day operations at MCS will remain unchanged.

“Acquiring MCS enables us to incorporate the expertise and resources of a leading Brazilian manufacturer into the Kollmorgen portfolio while making Kollmorgen products and application expertise easily available in Brazil, reinforcing our commitment to delivering complete, best-in-class motion control and machine automation solutions and support to OEMs around the world,” said Ray Butler, Kollmorgen Vice President & General Manager, Americas.  “MCS has a technically savvy and service-oriented staff of 40, and is recognized throughout Brazil for its excellent after-sales support.
