Bolton, Connecticut -- The Carlyle Johnson Machine Company, a manufacturer of industrial clutches and brakes, has acquired Regent Controls, a manufacturer of clutch and brake controls, timers, relays, and custom control solutions.
Carlyle Johnson purchased Regent in May of 2018, enhancing the company’s R&D and production capabilities with a new 15,000 square foot plant in Greenville, Rhode Island.
Installation at the new facility was completed at the end of June 2018 and immediately added three new jobs at the company.
Product development and manufacturing are now in full operation at the Greenville plant.
Regent Controls was founded in 1947 by Wendall E. Carroll, an electrical engineer known for designing one of the first all-solid-state industrial machine timers.
Today, the company provides industrial machine control products and custom control solutions to a wide range of manufacturing and process industries worldwide.
Under Carlyle Johnson ownership, Regent Controls will operate as Regent, a Carlyle Johnson Company.
