Sauer-Danfoss Changes Name to Danfoss

Sept. 20, 2013

Sauer-Danfoss has officially changed its name to Danfoss and now operates as a new business segment called Danfoss Power Solutions within the Danfoss Group. Danfoss Power Solutions will continue to provide mobile hydraulic solutions.

OEMs will be able to work with their existing contacts on new and ongoing product development projects. Technical service, applications know-how, and a focus on advanced hydraulic and electrohydraulic components and systems continue to be key elements in the company’s strategy.

In the long-term, OEMs can expect to benefit from the wider global network and broader technology base that Danfoss offers. Employing 23,000 people worldwide, Danfoss’ core business areas include refrigeration and air conditioning controls, power electronics, heating and mobile hydraulics.

“By joining Danfoss, we become part of one strong global brand with a high level of commitment to R&D,” said Eric Alström, former Sauer-Danfoss president and CEO, who continues this role for the new Danfoss Power Solutions business segment. “This will drive innovation forward and allow us to stay focused on serving our customers.

“The merger also ensures our customers a high degree of continuity. Danfoss has had a long-standing relationship with Sauer-Danfoss through its board-level involvement, and has helped shape our existing strategy that we will continue to pursue.”
