The HAWE Hydraulik Group, Aschheim/Munich, has taken over all employees and the main assets of the insolvent Mattro Group in Schwaz/Austria on 17 May 2019. Together with Mattro executives, the new Mattro GmbH is founded, in which HAWE Hydraulik holds the majority of the shares.
Mattro specialises in engineering the complete electric drive for manufacturers of mobile machines and also develops its own purely electrically powered tracked vehicles. The combination of mature innovative know-how on electric drive with excellent references from well-known machine manufacturers and the application knowledge from the development and production of its own vehicles is a unique selling point of the young company.
With this step, HAWE Hydraulik strengthens its electronics competence, which already consists of its own electronics development and cooperation with the Allgäu-based control, sensor and connectivity specialist STW.
The electrification of mobile machines is changing the requirements for hydraulic systems. With the acquisition, HAWE Hydraulik gains the knowledge and experience in electrical drive technology to advance the development of energy-efficient hydraulic systems. Only the intelligent holistic coordination of all sub-systems makes a truly energy-efficient machine possible.
The customers receive everything from a single source, from the engineering of the electric drive or the mobile working hydraulics to the supply of components, subassemblies and subsystems to the coordinated hybrid system solution. At the same time development, production and sales of the Mattro tracked vehicles of the types "Bock", "Ziesel" and "Ardenner" are continued.
