Swedish-based marine and industrial brake supplier Dellner Brakes has acquired German brake specialist JHS Jungblut in a move that will strengthen the company’s offering in the wind energy market, and also enable further global expansion, particularly in the Far East.
Following hot on the heels of Dellner’s acquisition of German brake manufacturer Pintsch Bubenzer in January, the company is firmly trying to position itself as a prime supplier of brakes and related power transmission products.
Formed in 2008, JHS has established itself as a noise-free, lightweight brakes and yaw sliding bearings for wind turbines.
This 43 employee business has its HQ in Germany with operations in China and India.
Dellner Brakes CEO Marcus Aberg said: “JHS is the perfect partner for Dellner Brakes as we share a pioneering, innovative approach to technological advancement, as well as a focus on the development of high quality products that truly meet the changing requirements of our customers and markets.”
Both companies have strong environmental credentials.
The enlarged company will operate under the Dellner Brakes JHS GmbH brand.
