Concentric AB has been awarded a contract from a leading global OEM of material telehandlers, boom and vertical lifts to produce hydraulic power units (HPUs) for their next generation of material handling equipment. Production has already started in the first quarter of 2017 and is estimated to generate total worldwide revenues of approximately MSEK 45 over a 5 year period, reaching a mature volume of 10,000 p.a. in 2018.

- Ability to easily integrate CALMA technology for low noise applications;
- Reduced envelope size to allow greater design flexibility and ease of installation; and
- Integrated components to optimize the system efficiency and reduce leakage paths.
David Woolley, President and CEO of Concentric AB, comments, "This contract win is another example of our commitment to advanced development projects aimed at reducing emissions, increasing power density and improving overall system efficiency through our market leading technology."
