Shingle & Gibb Automation acquires KOM Automation

Shingle & Gibb Automation announced the acquisition of KOM Automation of Amherst, New York.

KOM Automation, founded in 1950, is an industrial distributor of high tech factory automation components and solutions in the Upstate New York and Northwestern Pennsylvania regions. 

The two organizations share multiple attributes including a focus on similar product lines, namely Banner Engineering and Turck. 

“I’m honored to have the opportunity to associate with one of the longest tenured distributors of Banner and Turck and will carry on the Lamb family legacy of combining cutting edge automation solutions with first class customer service," said Brian Lepsis, president of Shingle & Gibb Automation. "Shingle & Gibb has the capacity to provide all the resources that customers require to be successful, but we are still small and nimble enough to serve customers as they want to be served, with a focus on human to human service.”

Marilyn Lamb, president of KOM Automation, added, “I am happy to see the company Bob and I started over 40 years ago join forces with another family-owned and family-focused company that shares our values and commitment to service. I’m excited to see so many of our long-term employees have so many new opportunities within Shingle & Gibb.”

Headquartered in Moorestown, New Jersey, Shingle & Gibb is a distributor of industrial automation and networking, motion control, machine safety and power transmission products.
