MAUSTON, Wis., December 4, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Magneto Movement, Inc., a portfolio company of Ilion Capital Partners, is excited to announce the successful acquisition of Dumore Corporation, a leader in electric motors, motor assemblies, industrial tools, and emergency starter solenoids.
Dumore Corporation was established in 1913 by Louis Hamilton and Chester Beach, beginning its tradition of turning creative ideas into high-quality products built with better designs and components. Over 100 years later, these same founding principles still drive Dumore today.
This strategic acquisition represents a significant milestone for Magneto Movement, reinforcing the firm’s commitment to creating a leadership position in motion control. Magneto Movement entered the motion control market in 2021 by acquiring AM Equipment, a leader in windshield wiper systems, fractional horsepower motors, and motion control applications to industrial companies globally.
Paul Olesh, CEO of Magneto Movement, said, “It’s exciting to partner with the incredible team at Dumore. Dumore has a century-long history of driving innovation and delivering high-quality products and solutions to the market, and the management team at Magneto Movement is well-positioned to respect that legacy and to partner with the Dumore team for the next phase of growth.”
“It was an easy choice to partner with Magneto Movement once we understood their commitment to growing and innovating in DC motors and motion control,” said David Messer, part of the ownership group that sold Dumore and now the general manager of the company.
Customers and suppliers of Dumore can expect a seamless transition, with the same dedication to excellence and personalized service that they have come to expect.
