Morse Controls has been developing and manufacturing mechanical control systems for on/off-road vehicles and the marine industry since 1933. In Sweden, the company has both competed and cooperated with RMH Controls AB, specialized in electronic control solutions.
”Our products have complemented each other”, says David Owen. ”The combination of mechanical and electronic solutions will give us a full range to offer the market.”
Morse Controls’ products use cable and controls to transfer push/pull, forward/reverse and rotational forces to gear shift, handbrake, steering and drive systems. Many of the company’s products carry international patents. RMH Controls have concentrated on programmable electronic solutions used to regulate automatic and semi-automatic transmissions, engines, steering systems and hydraulic/pneumatic movements.
”We look upon the acquisition as a cost-effective way
for us to expand. Our customers will definitely feel the benefit”, says David owen./ins
