Continental Hydraulics, the largest manufacturer of variable volume vane pumps in North America, and Duplomatic, a European leader in solenoid and proportional valves, are combining their expertise to expand product offerings, create cost efficiencies and make new opportunities for growth and innovation.
Dale Horihan, CEO of Continental Hydraulics said, “We are delighted to partner with a technology-driven European hydraulics manufacturer dedicated to investing in an American company run by Americans. By bringing together two companies with complementary product portfolios and common corporate values, this transaction enables us to become a premier provider, a center of excellence, for hydraulic valve and pump manufacturing.”
“The acquisition of Continental Hydraulics represents a unique opportunity for Duplomatic to enhance and add breadth to its product offering,” said Roberto Maddalon, CEO of Duplomatic. “This transaction fits in perfectly with our global expansion plan. We’re investing in a highly reputable American company known for quality, durability, high customer care support and quick delivery. “
Continental Hydraulics will retain its name, management team and staff. Manufacturing of existing products including new product development will continue to be managed from its manufacturing facility based in Savage, Minn.
