Broader market access, greater capacity for product research and development, and new distributor partnerships will augment the company’s objectives and fast-track penetration of domestic and international markets. PHS West looks forward to continuing its day-to-day operations as it always has while contributing to the success of Amplex AB.

Through this acquisition, PHS West, Inc. has been merged into PHS West, LLC, a North Carolina LLC with principal offices at 6704 Bleck Drive in Rockford, Minnesota 55373.

“In our companies within the Sunnex Lifting Technology Group, which is part of the Amplex sphere, we already have a fine and exciting business in lifting equipment for material handling and we are represented in several markets in both Europe and the USA. PHS West is a well-run company that we know well as a customer and partner in the American market. The acquisition of PHS West, Inc. gives us a high-quality and very attractive complement to our existing offering as well as adding a strong management team to our group,” says Fredrik Celsing, President and CEO of Amplex AB.

“PHS West is comprised of a strong team of highly educated and talented individuals that have built a remarkable company in growing markets. Continued success of PHS West will only be enhanced through this partnership with the Amplex sphere. As two separate entities, we share the same values in business and beliefs that employees are the backbone and driving force in any company. It was always my goal to find the perfect match to continue the legacy of PHS West. I believe the Amplex sphere fulfills that goal,” remarked Dan Cummings, Founder, President and CEO of PHS West, Inc.
