Formerly Allied Motion, Allient Acquires Sierramotion

Sierramotion specializes in designing and engineering turn-key motion components and mechatronic solutions.

On Sept. 25, Buffalo, New York-based manufacturer Allient Inc. — formerly known as Allied Motion Technologies Inc. — announced that it has acquired Sierramotion Inc., a privately-owned company specializing in designing and engineering turn-key motion components and mechatronic (mechanical, electrical and control) solutions for robotic, medical, industrial, defense, semiconductor and other precision applications.

Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed, according to an Allient news release.

“Sierramotion and Allient are well known to each other as they have collaborated and partnered in the past to develop industry leading solutions for the motion market,” said Dick Warzala, Chairman and CEO. “The engineering team at Sierramotion brings decades of experience in designing solutions for complex motion control problems, which we believe will advance our integrated motion solutions strategy and further enable our reach into our targeted end markets. Sierramotion excels at providing rapid product development, prototyping, and low volume production to improve speed-of-play for its customers. As part of the Allient family, we see the potential to enhance these capabilities by providing larger scale production capabilities for Sierramotion customers by leveraging the Allient global manufacturing footprint.”

Founded in 2019 and headquartered in Loomis, California, Sierramotion provides customized design and integration capabilities, testing, performance simulations, prototype development and low volume production for a variety of high precision and custom critical applications.

“We are excited to be joining Allient, which provides a comprehensive global manufacturing platform to further scale our business and drive innovation for our customers,” said Rob Mastromattei, Sierramotion Co-founder. “We look forward to a bright future together.”

Allied officially rebranded as Allient on Aug. 23. A note on the company’s website states, “Allied Motion has been renamed to Allient Inc. and is currently in the process of rebranding.”
