FOR A MORE SUSTAINABLE FUTURE

We apply a holistic approach to the environment, that permeates all parts of our organization. The trend towards more energy efficient systems has expanded our market opportunities, as our solutions are often integral features in end-products. Greater use of electric motors instead of hydraulic systems also produces an increased need for resistors. We offer a broad range of resistors and control functions for electric motors, which drastically reduce energy consumption.
