We are pleased to name Morrell Group as our April Member of the month. I had the pleasure of meeting with Kevin Curtis and Jeannine Rinke to discuss Morrell Group’s history and upcoming goals and projects.
For more than 40 years, Morrell Group has been a leading Engineering Partner, Systems Integrator, and Value-Added Distributor of advanced motion control solutions for industrial and mobile applications. Beginning as a distributor in 1979, Morrell Group has grown and expanded. In 1993, they opened in Canada and have continued to expand in the U.S. since then. Morrell Group is dedicated to pushing themselves to be on the cutting edge of advanced motion control solutions and believe that their clients need a partner, not just a distributor.
In April 2021, Morrell Group implemented their ‘Motioneer’ department. The team in this department focuses exclusively on conceptual engineering and are cross-trained in things like hydraulics, pneumatics and mechanical. They are experts in solving unique challenges and in solutions based engineering. You can read more about the Motioneer department HERE
While speaking with Kevin and Jeannine, they were especially proud of Morrell’s EV battery testing capabilities. In 2021, Morrell showcased their Battery Cycling DC Testing Solution for electric vehicle battery manufacturing at The Battery Show in Novi, Michigan. You can read more about Morrell’s battery testing and the 2021 Battery Show HERE. They were also very excited about the latest announcements for an EV battery plant coming to Windsor-Essex, Jeannine said “we are poised and ready to help new plants with solutions”.
I was also able to ask Kevin and Jeannine a few questions.
1. What are your goals for 2022?
A – We are looking forward to being involved in the EV market.
2. What are you most proud of from 2021?
A – The Motioneer department and its development. Our ability to create customized solutions and grow our engineering department to what it is today.
3. What advice would you give someone new to your industry?
A – You need a team backing you as it is not a ‘one man show’. There are so many aspects to what we do that you need to work together.
Thank you Kevin and Jeannine, and Morrell Group, for meeting with me. It was a great opportunity to learn and a pleasure to discuss their facility capabilities.
