In June 2014 Shanghai Moons’ Electric Co., Ltd., announced that it acquired Applied Motion Products, Inc. of Watsonville. CA.
Applied Motion Products was founded in 1978 and specializes in providing advanced stepper, and servo motor drives to a broad range of industrial and OEM customers.
“Our acquisition of Applied Motion Products represents an important strategic opportunity to offer complete motion solutions for our customers in North America and globally,” said James Chang, President of Shanghai Moon’s Electric. This acquisition is an expansion of our joint venture that was started in 2007 where AMP and Moons’ shared technology and R&D in the development of motor drives. This will further enhance organizations by the integration of all resources and strengths including sales networks.
No changes are planned in the day-to-day operation of Applied Motion Products, with the exception of reporting to Shanghai Moons’ Electric Company.
