Sun Hydraulics to Acquire Enovation Controls' Power Control & Vehicle Technologies Lines of Business

SunhydraulicsSun Hydraulics Corporation, a leading designer and manufacturer of high-performance screw-in hydraulic cartridge valves, manifolds and integrated package solutions, has entered into an agreement with Enovation Controls, LLC, an Oklahoma-based and privately held provider of electronic control, display and instrumentation solutions, to acquire its Power Controls (PC) and Vehicle Technologies (VT) lines of business. 

"With this acquisition, Sun acts on its commitment to our customers and shareholders. Our strategic focus is on innovation and complete system solutions. Enovation Controls' premium products support this focus and are an excellent fit with the Sun brand," said Wolfgang Dangel, Sun's President and CEO. "Enovation Controls' products will complement Sun's current offerings in mobile and industrial applications as hydraulic systems increasingly incorporate electronics."

Sun-hydraulics-murphy"Enovation Controls, co-founded by Frank Murphy III and Kennon Guglielmo, is among the fastest growing and most innovative electronic control and display companies globally," continued Dangel.

"The acquisition of the PC and VT business lines provides Sun attractive new brands with proven appeal, including the highly respected Murphy® brand, while infusing Sun with fresh ideas and expertise."

Sun will maintain Enovation Controls as a separate standalone company. The PC business will continue to provide electronic control systems, displays and customized instrumentation panels for power units, generator sets, off-highway equipment, and engine and pump instrumentation. The company's VT business will continue to provide electronic controls and infotainment solutions, solving complex problems in the recreational and off-highway vehicle and marine markets.
