Haldex Group primarily manufactures brake systems, technology for diesel engines and hydraulic systems for commercial vehicles and all-wheel-drive systems for passenger vehicles. Haldex has 10 production facilities spread across Europe, South America, North America and Asia.
Haldex Group is a Swedish public company that is also known as Haldex AB. It was formerly known as Halda Fickurfabrik AB.
Haldex was initially founded in 1887 as a manufacturer of clocks, typing machines, and taximeters. In 1914, it began to produce products for airplanes and cars. Over the course of the next 80 years, Haldex increasingly focused on automobiles, specifically commercial vehicles. It specialized in braking systems, regulators and adjusters.
Beginning at the end of the 20th century, Haldex made a series of acquisitions that further emphasized the company's focus on braking systems. In 1998, Haldex acquired Midland-Grau, which specialized in truck and trailer brake systems. Next, in 2001 Haldex purchased Anchorlok, a company that focused on brake chambers. In the same year, Haldex also acquired Neway, which specialized in valves.
As of 2015, Haldex has become a premier developer and provider of reliable and innovative solutions that improve safety, vehicle dynamics, and environmental sustainability for commercial vehicles. Haldex employs 2,235 people.
