Morbark Acquires Denis CIMAF

Morbark, LLC completed the acquisition of Denis CIMAF, Inc., based in Roxton Falls, Quebec. The company manufactures three main lines of products: the DAH series, industrial mulcher attachments for excavators; DAF series, attachments for skid steers and other dedicated carriers; and the EWF series, dedicated hydraulic power packs. The company celebrated its 20th anniversary last summer. .

The transaction represents Morbark’s second acquisition since private equity firm Stellex Capital Management LP acquired Morbark in 2016. The acquisition of Rayco Manufacturing in October 2017 brought in stump cutters, aerial trimmers, forestry mulchers and crawler trucks.

Morbark will operate Denis CIMAF as a new division maintaining its brand identity. Denis CIMAF’s management team will continue to manage its operations.

Flamex Offers Advanced Detector

Flamex’s new YMX 5000 Detector series represents a technologically advanced generation of infrared spark and flame sensors for industrial applications. An industry exclusive self-monitoring optics feature provides “through the lens” testing for each detector in real time to immediately alert the user of a reduction of detector capability caused by damage or lens contamination. Wiring requirements are minimized by the new design, which allow up to three remote sensors to connect to a field mounted control unit. The control unit offers a retrievable lifetime memory function and provides external LEDs to indicate the functional status of each detector.

YMX 5000 is suitable for installation in an extremely wide range of operational temperatures (-40° F up to 221° F) and therefore increases its applicability in areas where other detectors may not be appropriate.

The increased viewing angle of the detector enhances the detection capability and often reduces the number of detectors required for effective monitoring of a given area. Detectors are protected by robust stainless steel housing and utilize a field removable lens. The detector mounts easily and securely to facilitate installation and maintenance inspections. EX versions for Class 2 Division 1 hazardous areas are available. FM Global Approved. Visit
