An affiliate of private investment firm Angeles Equity Partners, LLC, recently announced its acquisition of Acieta LLC, a Midwest-based full-service industrial robotics manufacturer and integrator, from Mitsui & Co. (U.S.A.), Inc.
Angeles holdings include robotics integrator RōBEX, along with subset brands Mid-State Engineering and +Vantage. With the acquisition of Acieta, Angeles intends to build a scaled robotics integration platform, expanding its manufacturing footprint within domestic markets.
“We are excited about the combination of these two great companies and believe in the ongoing growth trajectory of this industry,” said Sam Heischuber, managing director at Angeles Equity Partners.
Acieta expands Angeles’ machine tending, palletizing, and welding offerings across a broader set of end markets including agriculture, foundry and die, welding and fabrication, and construction and building products.
Acieta offers standardized and customizable robots
Headquartered in Waukesha, WI, Acieta is a full-service industrial automation provider with systems, controls and software engineering capabilities. Since 1983, Acieta has built a large standardized robotics business and installed over 5,500 robots.
“Our team is eager to help build what we believe is the country’s most technically capable and experienced automation systems integrator,” said Robby Komljenovic, Acieta CEO. “This combination is designed to provide our customers an expanded reach, additional resources, and what we view as unmatched industry experience to advise on optimizing all processes.”
Through the acquisition, Acieta will continue operation at its combined 67,000 square-foot manufacturing facilities located in Council Bluffs, IA and Waukesha, WI. Together with Angeles' existing 140,000 square-foot manufacturing operations, the integrated company will offer customers additional capacity, products, and services.
