BURLINGTON, Ontario – A new stand-alone company has been created out of the former pneumatics business unit at Bosch Rexroth. Due to a change in ownership, the medium-sized company is now operating under the name Aventics.
Aventics is a globally active manufacturer of pneumatic components and systems. The company is also a specialist supplier of drive and control solutions for the marine industry and commercial vehicles, as well as inverted tooth chains for production processes. The former subsidiary of Bosch Rexroth has been operating as a standalone company since the start of 2014.
Aventics offers its customers tailored, cross-industry system solutions and services based on decades of applied expertise. Aventics is one of the leading suppliers worldwide in the area of industrial pneumatics. The company is a leading technology specialist for pneumatics, for example in the integration of electronics into pneumatics components. The company’s drive and inverted tooth conveyor chains are used in numerous sectors and feature strongly in the glass and automobile industries.
Canadian office to remain in Burlington, ON
The pneumatics specialists have global headquarters in Laatzen, Germany (near Hanover). In the United States, headquarters remain in Lexington, KY, and in Canada, headquarters remain in Burlington, ON. In its new position as a medium-sized business, the company, which has 2,100 employees, sees many opportunities around the globe.
“The new name combines the terms of advantage, invention, and pneumatics, and therefore describes what we are aiming for: our customers will get added value with our innovative products, system solutions, and services,” explains Dr. Alexander Lawrence, one of three members of the board at Aventics GmbH. Advantages are, for example, improved quality of consulting and reaction time.
Under the new name, the manufacturer of pneumatics components and systems intends to further expand its market position. In the future, Aventics will also address industries that the company has not globally focused on previously. Proven products and a clear focusing on customer needs will come under the company’s umbrella, along with global presence and individual customer solutions.
