Target, a leading motion control distributor in the New England trading area, increases Kaman’s already strong position in those markets and will become part of Kaman’s Minarik subsidiary.
“The acquisition of Target strengthens our motion control footprint in the New England area. With over 30 years of experience in the market place and their capability to provide engineered solutions, Target nicely compliments the resources of Minarik and Kaman to offer the Northeastern markets superior motion, automation, and power transmission products and systems with unequalled application support and service,” stated Andy Reid, Kaman’s Area VP, Minarik.

Target fits nicely with our recent acquisitions of Minarik and Automation Technology and is continued execution of our overall expansion strategy to further increase our already national automation and motion control footprint.”
