Allied Motion Technologies, a New York–based manufacturer of precision and specialty controlled motion products, has acquired Dynamic Controls Group.

Dynamic Controls Group is a wholly owned subsidiary of Invacare Corporation, which manufactures equipment for the medical mobility and rehabilitation markets.

The transaction was completed on March 7, 2020.

“Dynamic Controls brings strong leadership and a very experienced electronics and software engineering design team,” says Dick Warzala, chairman and CEO of Allied Motion Technologies, in a statement.

“Their product suite and solutions will further strengthen our medical market position around patient mobility and rehabilitation, as well as enable us to further develop higher level solutions with embedded electronics across our other major served markets. Importantly, the acquisition also expands Allied’s global electronics team and provides additional resources which can be leveraged across all our markets.”

The integration of multiple system elements for Dynamic Controls that are designed and manufactured by Allied, including controls, motors, drives, feedback and gearing, improves the overall value proposition for its customers.

Matt Monaghan, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Invacare Corporation, expects the acquisition will help speed technical advances for power wheelchairs.

“We expect this partnership can deliver on many opportunities that will enable Invacare’s products to continue to improve patient care,” Monaghan says. “We look forward to working closely with Allied Motion to discover new levels of innovation in patient mobility and respiration.”

Founded in 1973, Dynamic offers a line of electronic control systems for power mobility products to customers in North America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region. Its products include controllers for power wheelchairs and scooters, and ancillary product and service lines such as programming and diagnostic applications as well as printed circuit boards.

The company, which employs about 200 people in New Zealand, the United Kingdom and China, delivers product to mobility brands, large OEMs and contract manufacturers.
