DeSHAZO Acquires Integrated Machinery Solutions

DeSHAZO, a manufacturer of industrial equipment for the materials handling and automation industries, has announced the acquisition of Integrated Machinery Solutions (IMS).

IMS was established in July 2009 as an engineering consulting firm and custom machinery builder focused primarily on the materials handling industry. IMS will continue to operate under its current management team. It will be a separate business unit of DESHAZO and will maintain its existing facilities.

"DeSHAZO launched an aggressive growth initiative last year, and we continue to focus on expansion to meet the growing and changing needs of customers around the globe," said Guy K. Mitchell III, Chairman and CEO of DeSHAZO. "IMS has been a valued partner in our growth efforts over the last several years, and we are very pleased to welcome their talented team, experience and capabilities to DeSHAZO. We believe this acquisition significantly elevates our capabilities by allowing us to provide a broader product line with a wider array of material handling solutions to meet customers' needs. We look forward to continuing to serve IMS' existing customers with materials handling equipment and service, as well as automation products and services. We are very excited about the growth prospects for our combined businesses."

IMS has deep experience in the design and manufacture of wire rope hoists for overhead material handling, end trucks for bridge cranes, gearboxes, load-blocks and below-the-hook devices, as well as custom equipment design. In addition to IMS' manufacturing capabilities, having IMS as a business unit will also enable DeSHAZO to respond more rapidly to service requests, more effectively route parts requests and gain efficiencies in the repair cycle.

"As is currently the case with most U.S. manufacturers, IMS is facing supply chain and logistical challenges," said Steve Bond, co-founder and President of IMS. "By combining our capabilities with those of DeSHAZO, we are able to expand our fabrication and manufacturing footprint and meet evolving customer demands for materials handling products. In addition, adding DeSHAZO's extensive automation capabilities will further enhance the customer experience and product offering on future IMS products."
