Wauseon Machine Acquires McAlister Design

Wauseon Machine and Manufacturing, Inc., a provider of robotics automation, tube fabrication equipment and build-to-print precision machined parts, has acquired McAlister Design and Automation LLC of Greenville, SC, to further Wauseon Machine's aim of creating comprehensive automation solutions to meet the needs of customers.

"At Wauseon Machine, we are strategically looking for companies that can complement and expand our existing capabilities, which will allow us to better serve our customers' needs and help them improve their business," said Scott Anair, President and CEO, Wauseon Machine. "The acquisition of McAlister Design, with their impressive team, capabilities and location, aligns extremely well with this strategy."

With the McAlister acquisition, Wauseon Machine will double the size of its automation business and position the company for double-digit growth moving forward.

Founded in 1992, McAlister Design is a robotics systems integrator. In addition to its automation capabilities and expertise, McAlister's four facilities, totaling 48,000 sq. ft., bring significantly more capacity, both in floor space and technical resources, for automation projects.

"What impressed me our earliest conversations with Wauseon Machine is the level of respect they had for our history and our people," said Troy McAlister, founder and President, McAlister Design. "Family businesses understand family businesses, and in the case of Wauseon Machine, they know this industry and aspire to be true leaders in the space. We look forward to being part of Wauseon Machine's future."
