Moog Components Group Has Been Supplying the Core Motor Components for Animatics’ Integrated Servo Motors, but Will Now Purchase the Company for About $25 Million

After more than a decade supplying the core motor components to Animatics for its line of integrated servo motors, Moog has acquired Animatics for about $25 million in stocks and cash.

Animatics, founded in 1987, supplies SmartMotor servo motors and linear actuators used in a variety of industrial, medical and defense applications, including factory automation, flight simulation, and camera and weapons stabilization.

Sales for Animatics are expected to be about $5 million for the balance of Moog’s 2011 fiscal year.
