TS Manufacturing of Ontario, Canada is pleased to announce that it has completed acquisition of majority shares in Automation & Electronics (NZ) Ltd. and its subsidiaries. This acquisition strengthens the TS Controls division in North America and provides greater amalgamated support, worldwide, for the existing installed base of TS and A&E customers.

The existing A&E management teams in NZ and NC, U.S. will remain intact. TS is pleased to announce that Brian Smith and Windsor Technology NZ remain co-shareholders, ensuring stable and consistent leadership and direction for A&E, consistent with its proven 30+ year track record. The acquisition creates a deep team of over 16 PLC and software support staff, operating natively from three time zones. All companies remain committed to providing exceptional automation services.

Riley Smith, sales Manager for TS Manufacturing said, “This acquisition is more like a merger of like-minded professionals all dedicated to the wood products industry. It is our intent for existing vendor and customer relationships to remain unchanged with the three companies. Existing customers will now receive enhanced worldwide support from a diverse range of time zones and offices. Each company will mutually benefit from the broad and varying experience of the other two, and customers will get the most expedient and capable solutions in the wood products industry.”
