Ibex Engineering Joins the Motion Solutions Family

Aliso Viejo, CA – August 3, 2022

Motion Solutions, a provider of custom engineered solutions and world-class automation products, today announced that Ibex Engineering is now a part of the Motion Solutions family. Based in Newbury Park, CA, Ibex Engineering is a manufacturer of precision linear and rotary positioning systems, with specific expertise in custom OEM solutions. Ibex was formed to fill a gap in the motion control and positioning market by providing customized precision motion control platforms when off-the-shelf platforms are insufficient. Ibex Engineering is ISO 9001:2015 certified and has earned a reputation for servicing the most demanding ultra-precision motion control applications for markets that typically define leading-edge technology.

“We are excited to announce the acquisition of Ibex Engineering,” said Scott Depenbrok, President of Motion Solutions. “Its strong experience in application specific, custom OEM precision linear and rotary positioning systems is a perfect fit with Motion Solutions and our strategic direction. With the addition of Ibex and its talented in-house team, we can enhance the innovative solutions we provide to our key markets of Genomics, Biomedical, Pharmaceutical, National Laboratories, Microscopy, Life Sciences, Drug Discovery and Semiconductor.”

“Motion Solutions is the perfect fit for Ibex Engineering and our future direction. We will be able to provide customers even more advanced and innovative custom positioning stage solutions that employ the most advanced motor and motion technologies available for a variety of stage types and applications,” said Andre Perrin, President of Ibex Engineering.

Ibex customers now have access to products and services that solve a broader range of custom linear and rotary positioning applications. With nearly thirty degreed engineers on staff and ISO 13485 certification, Motion Solutions provides Ibex customers with an even deeper level of support for engineered solutions. Offerings range from clean-sheet designs to product makeovers aimed at cost reduction and manufacturability. Through the added capabilities of Motion Solutions, Ibex customers can now take advantage of a single source for precision linear and rotary positioning systems.

Throughout the acquisition process, Ibex customers can remain confident that they will still have access to the same staff, products, and expertise on which they have come to depend. “The synergistic products, markets, and skill sets will allow us to provide an expanded set of solutions to both our current and our future customers,” added Depenbrok.
