Andreas Lupold Hydrotechnik GmbH has a turnover of roughly 22 Mio. Euro generated by approx. 150 employees. Over the last decades, ALH has gained deep knowledge and profound competence in hydraulic valve engineering and thus became a reliable partner in design and manufacturing for its customers.
Andreas Lupold Hydrotechnik GmbH will become the know-how centre within Hydraulik Nord Group for valve engineering of stationary and mobile work machines. Its technical competence and well established customer base perfectly fit the core competencies within Hydraulik Nord Group.
Following full approval by the relevant authorities, the internal gear pump business was transferred to Hydraulik Nord Technologies GmbH, which continues to operate as an important part of Hydraulik Nord Group's Parchim site. Following this, Hydraulik Nord Fluidtechnik GmbH & Co. KG was transferred to Danfoss with the remaining steering systems business effective April 1st, 2019.
The construction work for the new hall on the premises of the Kemptener Maschinenfabrik is currently in full swing. The new paint shop is expected to go into operation in autumn 2019. Kemptener Maschinenfabrik is investing a total of 4 million euros in this innovative technology.
With the new system, painting can be carried out more environmentally friendly and at the same time more efficiently. In addition, the system enables significantly better quality paint processing. The investment enables an AirCoat painting process in which fewer solvents are used and thus compliance with the pollutant balance can be ensured.
With the new painting plant, the Kemptener Maschinenfabrik meets its own quality requirements and those of its customers.
Hydraulik Nord Fluidtechnik is active in the field of hydraulic steering systems and is currently developing innovative electrohydraulic steering solutions for mobile hydraulic applications. By combining forces with Danfoss, a strategic platform arises to set new standards in autonomous driving of working machines.
Danfoss has more than 26,000 employees worldwide and is serving customers in over 100 countries around the globe.
The acquisition is subject to necessary approvals by relevant authorities and is expected to be fully completed during the first quarter 2019.
The business unit of components and parts is not subject to the above-mentioned transaction. It will remain at HN Holding as a part of the Hydraulik Nord Group. Based on the technical knowhow and together with the University of Rostock and industrial partners, this business unit is going to realise advanced production technology and new product ideas.
Since 16th Dec 2017 , our old name "Hydraulik Nord GmbH" is part of our history of more than 25 years. From now on and for a better distinction between the holding and its subsidiaries , we are called "HN Holding GmbH".
