Hydac acquires all shares in Elma and Elro Srl.
By incorporating Elma’s skills and expertise in electric drive & control technology HYDAC strenghthens its position as total supplier in drive technology. From engineering, simulation and production to commissioning and worldwide service.
Elma and HYDAC serve to a large extent the same customers. Where HYDAC had to outsource electrical engineering, the company can now implement and offer this under their own management. The workforce for HYDAC will be expanded to around 300 people.
Former Elma owners Van Vulpen and Varel remain as directors of the new HYDAC location. The business will continue to be conducted under the current names of Elma and Elro, but are now enriched with the HYDAC image, vision and unique customer focus.
