Lincoln Electric Holdings, Inc. announced today that it has acquired Rimrock Holdings Corporation, a privately held manufacturer and integrator of industrial automation products and robotic systems with two divisions, Wolf Robotics LLC and Rimrock Corporation.
Wolf Robotics integrates robotic welding and cutting systems predominately for heavy fabrication (construction, mining, agriculture) and transportation OEMs and suppliers. Rimrock Corporation designs and manufactures automated spray systems and turnkey robotic systems for the die casting, foundry and forging markets.
“Our investment in Wolf Robotics extends our leadership position in automated welding and cutting,” said Christopher L. Mapes, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are excited to combine their expertise and capabilities as a leading automation integrator in the North American heavy fabrication sector with our existing portfolio to better serve customers and accelerate growth.”
Rimrock Holdings Corporation is headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, and has operations in Columbus, Ohio, and Fort Collins, Colorado. Annual sales are approximately $40 million. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
The donated equipment will be used to modify and customize vehicles for use by service members injured in combat and veterans so they can continue doing things they love.
Lincoln’s new electrode offers improved operator appeal over existing HD products through lower spatter and lower fume generation rates.
