Effective January 1, 2011 Bosch Rexroth Canada Integrates Hägglunds

Following the acquisition of the Swedish company in December 2008, 15 sales units of Hägglunds’ 22 legal units have been transferred to the legal units of Bosch Rexroth.

The legal integration was accompanied by a simultaneous integration of Hägglunds sales units into Bosch Rexroth sales units in each country, which allows a larger sales team to serve Rexroth and Hägglunds customers from one single source.

Hägglunds Drives is a leading international supplier of complete hydraulic drive systems, separate drive motors and services. The Group develops, manufactures, markets and services complete drive system solutions for applications requiring high torque and variable speeds. The drive systems are used in a wide range of industries, such as mining and materials handling, marine and offshore, recycling, sugar, pulp and paper.

The acquisition of Hägglunds Drives expands Rexroth’s industrial hydraulics portfolio. This together with Rexroth’s comprehensive range of drive and control automation solutions, strengthens our ability to gain new potential in growing markets, such as renewable energies, oil and gas, mining and bulk material handling.
