Two complementary players unite to offer comprehensive product portfolio for mobile and industrial applications

  • •Joint portfolio broadens global offering
  • •Customers benefit from additional sales channels
  • •Combined business to leverage complementary strengths

HydraForce, Inc. plans to join Bosch Rexroth’s growing portfolio of Compact Hydraulics products, expanding reach and support for customers. Bosch Rexroth, a subsidiary of Bosch, based in Lohr am Main, Germany, is a growing leader in Mobile and Industrial hydraulics products.  Bosch Rexroth and HydraForce signed a respective contract on July 15, 2022. Both sides agreed to keep the purchase price confidential. The transaction is subject to anti-trust approval.

“With Bosch Rexroth, we found a great partner who values and shares similar views on innovation, customer focus, application expertise, and culture. I believe the new ownership will create great opportunities for our customers, partners and employees and lead to sustained growth,” says Mike Terzich, President and CEO of HydraForce.

 

“With its diversified portfolio and international setup, Bosch Rexroth has a strong foundation. The acquisition of HydraForce expands our global market access through indirect sales channels: Sales partners and system integrators will become important target groups. In these challenging times, we are also helping to stabilize regional supply chains so that we can support our customers even better,” says Frank Hess, Vice President Compact Hydraulics Business Unit of Bosch Rexroth.

Combination creates a broader and deeper product portfolio 

HydraForce’s extensive portfolio of products perfectly complement the existing product portfolio of Bosch Rexroth’s Compact Hydraulic Business Unit. Within Bosch Rexroth, the business unit designs, manufactures and markets compact hydraulic components for applications such as earth moving, cranes, aerial platforms, agricultural machinery, and industrial applications at its four locations in China, the US, Germany and Italy. The business unit employs approximately 1,800 associates. HydraForce employs approximately 2,100 associates, most of which are located at six production locations in the US, BrazilUnited Kingdom and China.

The acquisition enhances regional customer support and additional sales channels 

In addition to the complementary product portfolios, the regional sales structures of HydraForce and Bosch Rexroth complement each other perfectly as well: The combined activities will thus create a well-balanced entity in North/South AmericaEurope, and will also support further growth activities in Asia Pacific. Furthermore, the addition of HydraForce will significantly improve Bosch Rexroth’s global market access through indirect sales channels (e.g. dealers and system integrators) which aligns with the long-term strategic target of Bosch Rexroth.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
