Certified Power Inc., a distributor of motion control and fluid power products headquartered in Mundelein, said last week it acquired Cirus Controls LLC.
Cirus Controls, a company based in Minneapolis, designs and manufactures equipment and technology for hydraulic systems, snowplow controls and performance management systems for large-scale winter road maintenance.
"The acquisition of Cirus Controls is in keeping with our strategy to build a best-in-class business in the markets we serve. Cirus Controls' market solutions are highly strategic and complementary to our winter road maintenance products business, and we are excited about the prospects of the combination," Certified Power President Scott Rosenzweig said. "We believe that the entire team from Cirus Controls, with their engineering expertise, commitment to customer service and focus on company culture, is a perfect fit within the Certified Power family. This is a great combination of two best-in-class businesses that brings together complementary hydraulics and electronics expertise to the significant benefit of our customers."
Paul Mortell, founder and president of Cirus Controls, will still lead the company's business
"The employees at Cirus Controls are very proud of the company we have built and are excited to become part of the Certified Power team," Mortell said. "This combination enables us to continue the Cirus Controls legacy, better serve our customers and provide even greater opportunities for our employees."
