Ellison Technologies Acquires Jackson Machinery
January 4, 2007
Ellison Technologies, Inc., Cleveland, OH, provider of engineered systems and industrial equipment to metal-working and metal-cutting manufacturers, has acquired Jackson Machinery Company, a privately held distributor based outside of Cleveland.The acquisition provides Ellison a stronger position in northern Ohio, a strong manufacturing base. The area includes major industrial markets such as Cleveland, Akron-Canton, Mansfield, Youngstown and Toledo. Industries represented include aerospace, automotive, agricultural, medical, and energy. Processes used include high-speed and multi-axis machining, robotic automation, continuous flow, and setup reduction. Until being acquired, Jackson Machinery was an exclusive dealer of Mori Seiki products and sub-dealer to Mori Mid-America Sales, distributing Mori Hi-Tech machines. Along with that product line, it also represented United Grinding, SNK, and Hanwha (Swiss turning lathes). Mori Seiki named Ellison Technologies its sole distributor in the Midwest earlier this year. Ellison reported it would continue to develop a wider range of services for its customers, including pre-engineering capabilities, robotic automation services and financing.
