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, this is an exciting time for the Swedish company which is well on the way to realising its ambition of becoming the world’s leading supplier of brakes and related power transmission products.
Formed in 2008, JHS has quickly established itself as a true pioneer of 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. The company’s products and solutions set standards for the industry and are used worldwide by nearly all leading manufacturers of wind power plants.
Dellner Brakes CEO Marcus Aberg said: “Wind energy, both on and offshore, is an area where we are very keen to expand. Our acquisition of JHS will help us consolidate our position in this important and growing sector, complementing our existing core markets of marine, industrial, cranes and winches, oil and gas. 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.”
