Motion Industries Inc., distributor of maintenance, repair, and operation replacement parts, announced that its industrial automation solution provider Motion Ai opened a new facility for its growing business. The facility officially opened on June 1, 2022. Motion Ai will hold an open house at the new facility in the spring of 2023.

Located in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, the new 105,000-square-foot premises features an additional 55,000 square feet over the old location, which was also in Eden Prairie. The larger space allows for integrated use, including a regional sales and support center, classrooms for employee and customer training, a regional fulfillment center, assembly and fabrication shops, a proof-of-concept design area, and engineering labs for customer product and demonstration engagement.

In addition, Motion Ai capabilities at this facility include large conveyor system builds, complete automation system builds, robotic and machine vision solutions, expanded pneumatic and machine control solutions, machining, welding, and more comprehensive value-added offerings.

“We wanted to meet the growing demands of our customers and the industry by growing every facet of automation and robotics solutions,” said Aurelio Banda, Motion’s senior vice president, Automation Intelligence. “Our investments allow for future, incremental expansion within our structure up to 30% beyond our current growth plans. This will also allow us to add employees over time.”

Randy Breaux, president of Motion, said, “Opening this state-of-the-art automation facility represents just one more way we anticipate our customers’ needs in production efficiency across virtually all industry sectors. This is an important step in our long-term growth strategy, and we’re excited to see the upward trajectory of technological innovation and services that the new Motion Ai location will support.”
