Italy’s ESA Automation buys drive-maker Selema
Published:  31 January, 2017

Italy’s ESA Automation has acquired the drives-maker Selema for an undisclosed sum. Selema, founded in 1978 and based near Bologna, produces drives with current ratings from 0.5–60A, to control brushless, linear and torque motors, among others.

ESA, which dates back to 1975, says that the acquisition is in line with its strategy of making investments in industrial automation to create new mechatronic products. In 2015, it bought the CNC specialist, Elcon.

ESA’s portfolio includes programmable controllers, HMIs, industrial PCs, Scada software, remote maintenance systems, soft-PLCs, I/O, routers and Web panels. 

Under new ownership: Selema's factory, near Bolgna
