Haldex has won the Swedish Association for Hydraulics and Pneumatics’ Major Hydraulics and Pneumatics Award for 2009 for its hydraulic coupling for all-wheel drive systems, Generation 5.
Haldex is to launch the world’s first UN-ECE approved rollover control simulator for trailers. The simulator will enable trailer manufacturers to obtain type approval for vehicles equipped with Haldex’s EB+ electronic braking system so that the vehicles meet the UN-ECE regulations (which include new rules for braking systems) without manufacturers having to carry out their own resource-intensive road testing.
Haldex continues to optimize its production structure. During the coming months, manufacturing in two of Hydraulics Divisions’ production units in the US will be consolidated into one plant.
The Extraordinary General Meeting in Haldex on November 24, 2009 resolved to approve the resolution by the Board on October 22, 2009 on a new share issue with preferential rights for the company’s shareholders.
