FORCE America has acquired Mobile Equipment Systems, Tukwila, Wash., a supplier of power-takeoffs, pumps and mobile hydraulic components to the northwestern United States. The acquisition extends FORCE America’s reach into the Pacific Northwest and provides local support for the company’s customers in the region. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
Mobile Equipment Systems has been serving customers in the Pacific Northwest since 1993. The company specializes in Parker Chelsea and Parker Hydraulic Pump products, along with several other key mobile hydraulic suppliers. Providing product expertise and the ability to service any component they sell has enabled a longstanding presence with loyal customers in the region.
“Mobile Equipment Systems is an excellent strategic and cultural fit for our company,” says John Stenz, Chairman and CEO of FORCE America, Inc. “Their knowledgeable team, key customer relationships and long-standing market presence provide a strong platform for long-term growth. Having this location also helps us better support several of our strategic customers based in the Pacific Northwest. Mobile Equipment Systems has a tenacious focus on putting the customer first. This aligns perfectly with the key values of the employee-owners in FORCE America.”
Following the acquisition, Mobile Equipment Systems will continue to operate at their current location. FORCE America will expand the product offering and local support for the company’s entire product offering including those designed and manufactured by FORCE America’s Valve and Electrical divisions along with VariTech Industries and PreCise MRM.
