Columbus McKinnon’s Unified and Magnetek brands bring more than 20 years of experience in delivering automated systems to the automotive industry. Our high-technology solutions are featured throughout the automotive manufacturing process, including ergonomic and autonomous workstations like ProPath™ and Intelli-Guide™.
Today, the Magnetek brand is known worldwide for the development, manufacture, and marketing of digital power and motion control systems for material handling, people-moving, and mining applications. The company began in 1984 through the formation of the LBO of Litton's Magnetics Group, including Louis Allis Drives & Systems.
In 1986, Magnetek acquired the Power Controls Corporation and in 1999 Electromotive Systems Inc. and Mondel Engineering. These two companies added electrification and control products to the company's portfolio as well as a full line of brakes used in a variety of industries. And, in 2003, with the acquisition of Telemotive Industrial Controls, the company would also add radio controls for overhead cranes into the mix.
Magnetek joined the Columbus McKinnon family in 2015.
