SuperFlow Technologies Group — a provider of flowbenches, engine dynamometers, chassis dynamometers and transmission diagnostic equipment — said Tuesday, May 12, that it has acquired the assets of Zoom Technology Inc. SuperFlow will take over all manufacturing, sales/marketing and administrative operations for the Zoom Technology product line, effective immediately; terms were not announced.
Zoom products are designed primarily to diagnose the automatic transmission before removing it for repair. Chris Hansen, Zoom chief executive officer, will relocate from his company’s former New Jersey facility to Des Moines, Iowa, to assist in the transition and to support Zoom’s existing product line and customer base.
“We’re very pleased to have Chris on our team,” says Scott Giles, president of SuperFlow Technologies Group. “He brings many years of transmission testing experience to SuperFlow, and with it, several state-of-the-art Zoom products. These product additions greatly expand and enhance our customer capabilities in transmission diagnostics. In fact, with the complete line of SuperFlow products, customers are now able to test or rebuild virtually every component of the drivetrain, from the engine and transmission, to the torque converter, axles, driveshaft and brakes.”
