Taylor manufactures dynamometers and turnkey test cell solutions for engine testing. Dyne makes eddy current, AC and DC dynamometers, controls and drives. Taylor said the acquisition would give the company a stronger foothold in the engine, vehicle and industrial component testing industry.

“We are thrilled to welcome Dyne Systems to the Taylor family,” said Art Downey, president of Taylor Dynamometer. “Both Taylor Dynamometer and Dyne Systems have grown to become industry leaders through groundbreaking ideas, highly-engineered products and experts in execution. It is a natural and complementary acquisition for Taylor Dynamometer that I believe will benefit both companies.”

Dyne has 25 to 30 employees at its 18,400-square-foot facility at W209-N17391 Industrial Drive in Jackson. Taylor has 50 employees at its facility in Milwaukee’s Menomonee Valley.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
