Swedish-based Dellner Brakes has acquired US brake and clutch company Gummi USA to consolidate its position as one of the world’s leading suppliers of brakes and related power transmission products for the industrial, and marine markets.

This acquisition, the first in Dellner Brakes’ 50 year history, will enable the company to expand its product offering worldwide and also strengthen the company’s distribution in North and South America.

The enlarged company will operate under the Dellner brand with Marcus Aberg continuing at the helm as CEO. Gummi USA president Edgar Roca has been appointed vice president for Dellner Brakes and managing director for the US company, Dellner Industrial Inc.

The US company, formed on September 12, 2017, will continue to operate from its existing production and sales facilities in Charlotte, North Carolina and Houston, Texas.
