Eaton Corporation and Linde Hydraulics, a division of KION Group GmbH, have entered into a global strategic alliance to strengthen the companies’ product lines, market distribution channels and regional coverage.
Eaton will add Linde’s comprehensive range of high-pressure piston pumps, motors and valves to its portfolio, and Linde will offer Eaton’s medium-pressure piston products.
In North, Central and South America and in Asia Pacific, Eaton’s Hydraulics business will supply Linde Hydraulics products through Eaton’s comprehensive sales and services networks and distribution partners. Linde Hydraulics will continue to operate in these regions by providing application support, technical services and cooperation with major international customers. In Europe, the Middle East and Africa, sales organizations and distributors for both companies will continue to focus on their core businesses with the mutually expanded product range.
“This important strategic alliance is complementary from a portfolio, market and regional perspective, and we look forward to the opportunities ahead,” said William VanArsdale, president – Eaton’s Hydraulics business.
