The Transnordic Hydraulic Valves team will continue to manufacture mobile control, diverter and circuit valves with flows up to 300ltr per minute and pressures up to 320 bar.
Hydraquip’s Managing Director Duncan MacBain comments, “The goal is to build a solid future for Transnordic, our strategy is to grow the business and to invest in more efficient machinery, and look at building partnerships worldwide to strengthen the range of hydraulic valves.” The goal will allow Transnordic Hydraulic Valves to offer a larger comprehensive range of hydraulic valves allowing the company to cater for a larger number of applications and industries.
