Exotic Automation & Supply, a premier Parker Hannifin distributor, announced today they have acquired Sidener Engineering, an Indiana Parker Hannifin distributor. The acquisition joins two well-established, reputable leading fluid power suppliers to offer greater services to Michigan, Indiana, Ohio and surrounding areas.
Sidener Engineering was founded in 1981 and has grown into a full-line, value added distributor for fluid power, pneumatic & engineered safety products. Sidener Engineering also specializes in unique safety products for the foundry industry.
Exotic Automation & Supply was founded in 1963 and has grown to become one of Parker’s largest distributors in the United States. As one of only a handful of Parker distributors authorized as a Center of Excellence for hydraulic, fluid connector, pneumatic and electromechanical products, Exotic has earned the reputation of being a supplier of choice to many diversified markets in Michigan.
“This acquisition expands Exotic’s capabilities, both geographically and technically, which will allow us to further expand our footprint in the United States,” Steve Orlando, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Exotic Automation & Supply said. “One of our first initiatives will be to assist Sidener in promoting proprietary foundry & safety products throughout the U.S.”
“This partnership creates an exciting opportunity for our company and customers,” Greg Sidener, President of Sidener Engineering said. “Partnering with Exotic increases our capabilities through expanded marketing, sales, engineering and manufacturing capabilities. I see tremendous growth offered by the joining of our two companies.”
