JJ Loughran have a long standing partnership with VACON drives, and are pleased to inform our valued customers that we will be joining forces with another heavy-weight in the Variable Speed Drive Industry, DANFOSS.
The combination of VACON and DANFOSS will create one of the world’s leading players in the drives market, leveraging the best assets of both companies.
“Combining two strong and innovative AC drives companies will give customers an even more competitive, innovative and attractive offering of AC drives. Joining forces also means that the new business will be able to invest further in both R&D and in the sales force, which is a key success factor in our business,” says Vesa Laisi, President and CEO of Vacon.
The two companies are in the process of combining to become DANFOSS DRIVES and will offer a world leading product portfolio. A dedicated drives focus unites the two companies and distinguishes it from its competitors.
