Baumer Merges Divisions to Pursue Motion Control

Watch for Baumer Ltd. (, Southington, Conn., to make a new marketing push in the United States following the recent merger of four existing, independent divisions by its Swiss-based parent into a newly created entity focusing entirely on motion control solutions.
