By Mike Osenga23 December 2018

Danfoss continues its almost dizzying array of acquisitions with the announcement that the Danish company has signed an agreement to acquire privately held Hydraulik Nord Fluidtechnik, supplier of hydraulic steering solutions in Parchim in Germany. The announcement said bringing Danfoss Power Solutions and Hydraulik Nord Fluidtechnik together was done to “create a strong global player in the hydraulic steering market” and will expand its product portfolio and increase manufacturing capacity.

The acquisition is subject to necessary approvals by relevant authorities and is expected to be fully completed during the first quarter 2019. As usual, the parties have not disclosed the purchase price or other conditions of the acquisition.

“Innovative and efficient product offerings to the agriculture market is vital for tomorrow’s food supply, and this acquisition confirms our strategic focus on building leading positions in our core businesses. With Hydraulik Nord Fluidtechnik as part of our mobile hydraulics business, we will have an even more competitive product offering from which our customers within agriculture and other segments will benefit,” said Eric Alström, president, Danfoss Power Solutions.
