The global engineered equipment and automation solutions provider has signed a deal to acquire Motion06, a manufacturer of machines and components for conveyor systems.

With locations and joint ventures in Austria, Singapore and China, Motion06 expands Duravant’s footprint in Europe and Asia.

Our team is extremely excited about the immediate accelerated growth opportunities this new relationship provides.”
