Swedish-based marine and industrial brake supplier Dellner Brakes said it has acquired German brake specialist JHS Jungblut in a move that aims to strengthen the company’s offering in the wind energy market, and also enable further global expansion, particularly in the Far East.

The enlarged company will operate under the Dellner Brakes JHS GmbH brand. Kai Kölker has been appointed Vice President for Dellner Brakes JHS GmbH and will be running the company’s wind business division in Dorsten, Beijing and New Delhi.

Formed in 2008, JHS manufactures noise-free, lightweight brakes and yaw sliding bearings for wind turbines. This 43-employee business has its HQ in Germany with operations in China and India.

Dellner Brakes CEO, Marcus Aberg, said, “Wind energy, both on and offshore, is an area where we are very keen to expand. Our acquisition of JHS will help us consolidate our position in this important and growing sector, complementing our existing core markets of marine, industrial, cranes and winches, oil and gas. 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.”

Kölker said, “This merger with Dellner Brakes will allow us to continue serving our customers and to grow our business and in the wind sector. Dellner Brakes’ business philosophy fits excellently with our own, being customer oriented with operational flexibility, quick decision making and a true focus on technology and quality.”
