Arcos Hydraulik’s CEO Ewa Helgesson: ”Dacke Industri’s strategy, company culture and values are well in line with ours and that of Arcos Hydraulik. Over the last couple of years Arcos Hydraulik has had a strong development – and with Dacke Industri as the new owner, the company will be able to continue this positive development, and we look forward to build an even stronger company together with our new owner.”

Dacke Industri’s CEO Börje Vernet: ”Arcos Hydraulik is a strong company with an excellent match to Dacke Industri’s strategy and we look forward to support the company’s continued growth”

 Arcos Hydraulik in Sävsjö, Borlänge, Nastola och Hällaryd - with focus on customer in industrial, energy and marine sectors in Northern Europe

Dacke Industri’s CEO Börje Vernet: ”By focusing our hydraulic cylinder activities toward our two customer groups, we are creating good conditions for competitiveness, growth and profitability for each of the businesses. The complement from Arcos Hydraulik adds value to our industrial operations, and we are launching a significant investment program in Vaggeryd for continued development of our mobile operations”

PMC Cylinders CEO Håkan Säberg: ”A spilt of PMC Cylinders into two companies is a logical step in the company’s development to maximize customer value. Within the mobile business, we will now invest 3.5 MEUR over the next year and a half, to meet the required capacity, productivity and precision in quality/deliveries to our present and new customers”

The new company structure and organisation is planned to be implemented during June 2018.
