Bailey International Acquires Industrial Electronic Controls (IEC)
As a leader in the manufacturing and distribution of mobile hydraulic power solutions, Bailey acquired IEC to expand its product portfolio and provide additional expertise in electronic throttles, displays, and sensor manufacturing. “Combining IEC’s high-quality products with Bailey’s existing portfolio allows us to offer a very broad range of electronic controls products to the market,” said Ken Baker, CEO of Bailey International. “The addition of IEC’s offerings will help us fulfill our vision to provide mobile and industrial equipment manufacturers with a more comprehensive range of products and expand our fingertip-to-tooltip offering,” said Baker.
IEC’s electronic throttles, displays, and sensors have a reputation for rugged design and unsurpassed quality control. IEC has extensive design and engineering capabilities combined with more than two decades of experience serving original equipment manufacturer customers. Beyond complementary product portfolios, Bailey and IEC are both dedicated to developing highly customized controls for heavy equipment applications in agriculture, construction, forestry, transportation, and beyond. Both companies employ rigorous processes to design, engineer, manufacture, and quality-test products to ensure they withstand constant use in even the most rugged environments.
“We are thrilled to add IEC to the Bailey family and expand our expertise in the space. IEC’s foot pedal controls complement and fit seamlessly into the joystick and hand controls already in Bailey’s product set,” says Nathan Bouknight, Managing Director of EBSCO Capital.
