Kollmorgen has acquired MCS Engenharia Ltda., a Brazilian-based manufacturer and system integrator of standard and customized high-performance motion controllers and complementary motion control components.

“MCS has a technically savvy and service-oriented staff of 40, and is recognized throughout Brazil for its excellent after-sales support. MCS also has an experienced research and development team which collaborates with OEMs to engineer superior performing machines,” says Ray Butler, vice president and general manager, Kollmorgen Americas. “This level of service, experience, and commitment provides instant synergy with Kollmorgen’s heritage of motion control design and application expertise, and our passion for providing OEMs with breakthrough solutions that are unmatched in performance, reliability, and ease-of-use.”
Headquartered in Tamboré, São Paulo, Brazil, MCS is the largest domestic supplier of precision motion controllers, as well as the first Brazilian-based motion control manufacturer.

The acquisition combines both companies’ expertise, technology, and products, making Kollmorgen resources readily available to Brazilian machine builders and making MCS resources available to Kollmorgen customers around the world. Day-to-day operations at MCS will remain unchanged.
