was originally known as Pillar Motion Controls. Pillar Corporation
purchased the cylinder line from Alkon Corporation
in 1986 as an attempt to expand their product line and subsequent market expansion. Pillar Corporation
was largely unsuccessful in promoting this aspect of the business and the product line was sold to a group of investors in 1990, and renamed Motion Controls, Inc.
The group of investors was made up of people who had been involved in the fluid power industry for many years, and understood the needs of the market place, something that Pillar Corporation had lacked. The business grew and many of the problems which had plagued Pillar Corporation were rectified.
In the Spring of 1999, the group of investors voted to sell the corporation. The assets were sold to a private concern and Motion Controls LLC. opened January 1, 2000 with all of its previous experienced employees. We have continued to flourish since then.
