Massman acquires Applied Automation

Massman Automation Designs acquired Applied Automation.

The combined annual sales of the combined companies are expected to exceed $10 million. Applied Automation will now operate as Massman Engineering LLC, a div. of Massman Automation Designs LLC.

In addition to filter assembly automation, the Massman Engineering division will continue to provide automation solutions for its current markets including medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and vial and roller bottle handling.

Both companies were purchased earlier this year by Jeff Bigger, now president of Massman Automation Designs. “The combination of these two organizations will provide a large, stable platform for accelerated growth,” says Bigger. “We see excellent opportunities for synergy between the organizations and will continue to expand the three separate markets that the two companies served separately prior to this acquisition.”
