CORNELIUS, OR – Sheldon Manufacturing, a world leader in the design and production of equipment for life science and research laboratory customers, announced the acquisition of the industrial electronics firm HighPoint Design. With an extensive portfolio of design services, software development, and manufacturing expertise, HighPoint will add strategic value to Sheldon Manufacturing’s growth in key laboratory and industrial markets.
During the announcement, Dan Sheldon, Sheldon’s President, and CEO said “as part of Sheldon’s quest for continuous improvement, I am happy to announce our acquisition of HighPoint Design based in Irving, Texas. As the newest member of Sheldon’s family of brands, HighPoint will facilitate our expansion of products and services both to our existing customers and into a new lab, aerospace, and industrial markets. Having HighPoint gives Sheldon new geographic reach and increases our capability in large scale mechanical design and specialized industrial applications. We now have the ability to design and produce controls and equipment for specialized high- performance lab and industrial products, including VHT (Very High Temperature) controls. HighPoint’s expertise in microprocessor and touchpad controls gives Sheldon immediate access to enhanced control systems for both our current and “in-development” products. It’s a great fit for both companies”.
Steve Diller, Director of New Product Development, commented that “the acquisition gives both Sheldon and HighPoint enhanced strategic capabilities and multiple design and production synergies. HighPoint adds Sheldon’s design and manufacturing expertise to its own industrial control and design capabilities. In return, Sheldon can offer its customers in-house electronic and manufacturing design services for all its products, and can accelerate its own new product enhancement and development.”
Don Williams, VP of Economic Development & Operations for the Irving Economic Development Partnership said: “The Irving Economic Development Partnership looks forward to welcoming Sheldon Manufacturing home to Irving, Texas. The Partnership serves as an instrumental resource for new, existing, and expanding businesses providing a speed-to-market approach where we roll up the red tape and roll out the red carpet. The Partnership will support Sheldon Manufacturing as the company transitions, serving as a catalyst for assisting its employees in learning the community and building a strong customer base.”
