Why did Bosch Rexroth acquire HydraForce?

While Bosch Rexroth offers a wider range of compact hydraulic components and systems, HydraForce focuses on mechanical and electrical cartridge valves and hydraulic integrated circuits (HIC). Compact hydraulics is particularly valuable due to its high power density and capabilities regarding essential functions in hydraulic systems. The world market for these systems has been growing continuously, and Bosch Rexroth expects its newly shaped Compact Hydraulics Business Unit to meet or exceed market growth.

Who is HydraForce?

HydraForce, Inc. is a leading privately held developer and producer of compact hydraulic valves and solutions mainly for mobile applications. HydraForce employs around 2,100 associates at its locations predominantly in the US, Brazil, United Kingdom and China. The privately held company was founded in 1985. It perfectly complements the existing product portfolio of the Compact Hydraulics Business Unit of Bosch Rexroth.

The newly shaped Compact Hydraulics Business Unit will operate from its current headquarters locations in Lincolnshire, Illinois, USA, and Nonantola, Italy.
