Innovative Motion Technologies Unveils New Branding

 Following the acquisition of Micro-Air last year, IMT’s new branding and website represent the next step in company’s evolution


Germantown, WI - Innovative Motion Technologies (IMT), an industrial technology platform providing unique interface and controls solutions, today unveiled its new branding and website. IMT is the parent platform of its longstanding brand Raffel Systems. Since 1982, Raffel Systems has been the industry innovator in developing electronic motion controls, comfort-oriented systems, and innovative charging solutions for multiple end markets, including Residential Furniture, RV Healthcare, Hospitality, Bedding, and Industrial applications. Following IMT’s acquisition of Micro-Air, a leading designer and manufacturer of electronics for HVAC and generator efficiency, as well as thermostat controls for the RV, Marine, and Residential industries, the new branding represents the next step in IMT’s evolution.  

IMT’s new website provides visibility into IMT’s mission to bring innovation and technology through enhanced functionality to the products in which they are integrated across multiple end markets. The unveiling of the new branding reflects IMT’s synergy, breadth, and support of its brands which are deeply respected for their heritage, innovation, quality, and customer service.
