Ohio-based Wauseon Machine and Manufacturing, which provides robotics automation, tube fabrication equipment, and build-to-print precisioned machine parts, has announced it acquired McAlister Design and Automation of Greenville, S.C. The acquisition aims to continue Wauseon’s goal of creating comprehensive automation solutions to meet the needs of current and future customers, and make its own automation capabilities available in more regions of the country.

“At Wauseon Machine, we are strategically looking for companies that can complement and expand our existing capabilities, which will allow us to better serve our customers’ needs and help them improve their business,” said Scott Anair, president and CEO of Wauseon Machine. “The acquisition of McAlister Design, with their impressive team, capabilities and location, aligns extremely well with this strategy.”

Founded in 1992, McAlister Design is one of the largest privately owned automation companies in upstate South Carolina, and has been recognized as a premier robotics systems integrator offering a comprehensive suite of services. The company’s four facilities, totalling 48,000-square-feet, bring in more capacity for automation projects and technical resources.

“What stuck out to me from our earliest conversations with Wauseon Machine is the level of respect they had for our history and our people,” said Troy McAlister, founder and president of McAlister Design. “Family businesses understand family businesses, and in the case of Wauseon Machine, they know this industry and aspire to be true leaders in the space. We look forward to being part of Wauseon Machine’s future.”
