We believe there is tremendous opportunity in this economy which is why we're investing at this time
Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) August 21, 2009
Badger Transformer Co, Inc, Milwaukee, WI has acquired two Minnesota companies, Sub-Tronics, Stacy, MN and Nicollet Technologies, Minneapolis, MN. Sub-Tronics was acquired in Dec 2008 and subsequently moved into Badger's Mag-Con Engineering subsidiary in Lino Lakes, Minnesota.,
The assets and branding of Nicollet Technologies were acquired by Badger Transformer in August 2009. The majority of employees of Nicollet Technologies were immediately hired by Badger Transformer. Badger will continue operations in the Nicollet building through September and then move the people and equipment for Minnesota and other regional customers to their state-of-the-art Mag-Con Engineering facility. Customers in Texas, principally oil exploration related, and other distant locations will have their products manufactured from the Badger Transformer facility in Milwaukee. Total employment in both Minnesota and Wisconsin is expected to increase.
With a combined 104 years of experience both Badger Transformer and Mag-Con Engineering have earned their position as leaders in the engineered transformer and electronics market. Badger and Mag-Con's products continue to provide both practical and creative solutions for OEM, commercial and industrial applications. The addition of Nicollet and Sub-tronics adds another combined 75 years of experience to the Badger family of companies.
"We believe there is tremendous opportunity in this economy which is why we're investing at this time," said Cliff Evans, President of Badger Transformer. "With our recent acquisitions of Sub-Tronics and Nicollet Technologies, we believe our position as a leader in the transformer and electronics industry will become stronger than ever. Our engineering capabilities will increase and our product lines will expand to serve both large and small companies in a broad array of industries." The Badger family of companies serves industries such as railroad, defense, heavy industry, alternative energy, oil and natural gas, wind power generation, technology, theater lighting, mining, library security, and auto diagnostics, to name a few.
