Eaton and Linde forge global alliance
Partnership targets mobile and industrial equipment markets.
Eaton Corporation and Linde Hydraulics, a division of KION Group, on Wednesday announced they have entered into a global strategic alliance.
The agreement strengthens product lines, market distribution channels and regional coverage for both companies, who seek better access to the construction, agriculture, vocational vehicles, civil engineering, processing and other industrial markets for their hydraulic system technologies and services.
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, a joint press release declared.
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.
