Moog announces security and surveillance acquisition
Moog Inc. announced today that the company has purchased Pieper GmbH, a Schwerte, Germany based manufacturer of video products and integrated vision systems for security and extreme industrial environments. Pieper had 2009 revenues of euro 11 million.
"Pieper's systems expertise and hardened video products for extreme environments expand our ability to solve the most difficult vision system problems for our customers," said Jay Hennig, Group President of Moog's Space and Defense segment. "Their headquarters in Schwerte will provide a base from which our security and surveillance businesses can provide superior, local service to our European customers."
The acquisition is expected to add approximately euro 5 million to Moog's sales for the remaining 5 months of the 2010 fiscal year. As a result of first year purchase accounting adjustments, the acquisition is expected to be neutral to previously forecasted fiscal year 2010 earnings per share.
Moog Inc. is a worldwide designer, manufacturer, and integrator of precision control components and systems. Moog's high-performance systems control military and commercial aircraft, satellites and space vehicles, launch vehicles, missiles, automated industrial machinery, wind turbines, marine and medical equipment.
