New name aligns with Allient's strategy to transform into a solutions-oriented company addressing customer requirements for motion, controls and power technology.

Allied Motion Technologies, a global designer and manufacturer of precision and specialty motion, controls and power products and solutions for targeted industries and applications, is changing its corporate name to Allient, effective from August 23.

“The name change builds off the success we have demonstrated in the Motion industry and reflects the evolution of our technology portfolio into a broader set of motion, controls and power solutions. Short for Allied Nexus Technologies, ‘Allient’ captures the value opportunity that exists at the nexus of the three technology pillars and recognizes the unique capabilities the combination offers,” commented Dick Warzala, chairman and CEO.

The company’s shareholders approved the name change at a special meeting of shareholders held on August 11. At the opening of the markets on August 23, the company’s shares will commence trading under the new ticker ALNT on the Nasdaq.

Warzala added, “Our increasing emphasis on controls and power technologies significantly expands the addressable markets for the company. In addition, we are structuring our organization with focused market selling and support teams to increase solution sales opportunities under the Allient brand. Ultimately, we aim to replicate our growth and success in the motion industry to broader addressable markets within the controls and power industries.”
