Sweden-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.

Dellner Brakes CEO Marcus Aberg noted: “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.”

The enlarged company will operate under the Dellner Brakes JHS GmbH brand.
