Bosch Rexroth completes Hägglunds acquisition

04 May 2011

Bosch Rexroth has completed the acquisition of Wakefield-based Hägglunds Drives, which will now be fully integrated into the Bosch Group

The acquisition, for an undisclosed sum, will significantly strengthen the Rexroth position in the bulk materials, process and marine and offshore markets, where Hägglunds have had a traditionally strong presence with its hydraulic motor and drive products.

The integration will be fully completed by 1 June 2011. The Hägglunds brand will remain highly visible within the marketplace and its Wakefield-base will remain in operation along with its global office and distribution network.

Paul Cooke, Managing Director of Bosch Rexroth in the UK said: “This is very much an acquisition designed to mutually strengthen both Bosch Rexroth and Hägglunds Drives and will provide significant opportunities for both companies.

“Bosch Rexroth will benefit from the superb Hägglunds hydraulic technology and expertise in sectors such as marine and offshore. Hägglunds will benefit from the Bosch group’s stability and its commitment to research and development, which last year resulted in an investment of 7.8% of revenue, double the industry average.”

Tony Kay, Managing Director of Hägglunds Drives, said: “We've already worked very closely with Bosch Rexroth on several applications. The formal completion of the acquisition will make both companies stronger and ensure that we have access to Bosch’s engineering expertise, ensuring we remain at the leading edge of drive and motor technology. My message to our customers is “that it will be a very positive and exciting future.”
