“The addition of Vamco International to Nidec Minster continues to expand our product offering while also creating many new opportunities for continued growth,” said Winch. “More importantly, Vamco has a history of proven excellence, which directly parallels Minster’s philosophy, and will bring more than 70 years of innovation and business relationships to our worldwide operation.”
