In August of 2005 Servo Kinetics entered into negotiations with the Eaton Corporation to acquire the former Vickers Classic 2000 series product line. This fine line of hydraulic pumps and fluid motors were at one time the premier products offered by Vickers Corporation. The purchase was finalized on March 1st, 2006.
The purchase included all material and intellectual assets as well as thirty tons of inventory. This news means more than 30,000 parts & machine drawings on micro-film aperture cards have been scanned and converted to digital files for online access.
Servo Kinetics Inc CEO, George Kokalis commented,
This acquisition has already impacted our power plant business. The resurrection of this former flagship of the Vickers product line is being received very well both at home, as well as globally. We are finding many companies still running these fine products, and we are informing them that Servo Kinetics Inc is now providing full support on all models of pumps and fluid motors.
Information about the fine 2000 Series product line can be found under Vickers Classic Factory Rebuilds and New Pumps & Motors. Servo Kinetics Inc is fielding offers from hydraulics facilities to investigate a potential Classic 2000 Series reseller program.
