Morrell Group, a provider of advanced motion control solutions headquartered in Auburn Hills, announced it has finalized its acquisition of LOR Manufacturing, an industrial mobile systems integrator in Weidman (northwest of Mount Pleasant). Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“The knowledge and expertise we gain from LOR will allow us to grow in the mobile equipment manufacturing segment,” says Mark Garrett, co-owner and president of Morrell Group. “Morrell’s plan for increasing its footprint in the mobile application market will show customers they can rely on us as they move toward next-generation vehicles and expansion into the EV market.”
