Trends of major manufacturers in the fluid power industry in Europe and the United States

in recent years, mergers, acquisitions and other restructuring activities of foreign fluid power industrial enterprises have prevailed. In May 2000, Sauer Sundstrand of the United States, Germany and Danfoss of Denmark merged to establish Sauer Danfoss Inc. later, the company merged with Daikin Inc of Japan to produce hydraulic products for construction machinery to establish Daikin Sauer Danfoss manufacturing company and Sauer · Danfoss Daikin sales company. The company's goal is to strive for hydrostatic drive (HST) to rank first in the Japanese and Asian markets. In 2004, the company established a new factory in Japan

the sales volume of Bosch roxroth Ag in the Chinese market has increased significantly since 2002, which complements the decrease in domestic sales in Germany. The main goal of the company's acquisition of Japan's Uchida company is to enter the Chinese and Asian markets on a large scale. With regard to pneumatic components, the company cooperates with Japan's komai, aiming to occupy its due place in the international pneumatic component market. Eaton merged with the hydraulic part of Sumitomo Corporation of Japan in October 2000, and purchased the shares of Sumitomo Corporation to become its subsidiary. The company plans to establish a local company of agricultural machinery and hydraulic components in China

the main companies are introduced below to understand their development trends

1 Parker Hannifin Inc

the company is a comprehensive company of motion d control components and systems. It was established by Mr. L. Parker in 1918. Since 1924, the company has entered the hydraulic and pneumatic industry from the automobile and its related products. In 1957, he bought the cylinder and valve manufacturing department of Hannifin Inc and developed into a company with the current name. It has more than 2000 production sites in 44 countries, 48000 employees, annual sales of $6billion, 7500 sales and agency sites in the world, and 400000 customers and related units. More than 2600 kinds of main engines are composed of various hydraulic and pneumatic products, of which the automotive industry and aviation industry account for more than 1100

from 2003 to the end of June, the company's total annual sales reached US $6.4 billion, an increase of 4.3% over the previous year, the operating profit was US $37.577 million (an increase of 23.9%), and the net profit was US $196.27 million (an increase of 50.8%), taking into account the changes in the foreign exchange ratio and the acquisition/separation of enterprises, the actual sales decreased by 1%. The industrial machine market and aerospace market were severe, coupled with the increase in annuity, insurance, medical costs and other factors, The actual profits have decreased, for which more than 80 factories have been closed in the past three years

from the perspective of various industries, the demand for industrial machinery, engineering machinery and aerospace has decreased, and the agricultural machinery and air conditioning market has also been weak recently. The Aerospace Department has some good effects on its performance due to the 100 military orders of embracr 190. See Table 1.1 for specific sales volume and other data

in the past seven years, it has bought 50 enterprises (MDA) in a row, and only in the last two years, it has acquired 8 enterprises and institutions. Due to the economic downturn, the U.S. fluid power market has shrunk, but due to the purchase and merger, the size of the company is constantly expanding. In 2001, the company purchased commercial InterTech, an American commercial company that produces hydraulic components for industrial vehicles/agricultural machinery, with a total investment of US $360million and a liability of US $170million

in January, 2001, grensen hydraulics was purchased from dand Corp, a famous company producing auto parts in the United States. The company has production plants in many states and Brazil, mainly producing hydraulic pumps/motors, oil cylinders, hydraulic control valves, filters and electronic control devices for automotive and construction machinery. The output value of the company in 2000 was 128million US dollars

the purchase of the above two companies enriched the construction machinery and hydraulic machinery for vehicles, enabling the company to achieve complete supply in the drive and control fields. The purchase of gresen's factory in Brazil has increased the share of the South American market and reduced costs at the same time. In March of the same year, cummimetal company, which produces rubber metal, rubber plastic and sealing products, was purchased from Germany. At the same time, it entered the seals group. In September of the same year, it bought the pneumatic components Department of the company from inven sysplc, a famous British company, which expanded and strengthened the market supply capacity of the company in general machinery, packaging, pharmaceutical, printing and other automation equipment

in March of the same year, it also purchased fairly Arlon, a famous British filter company, and incorporated it into the company's filter Department (FIL generation group). In this way, the European filter business department of the company is strengthened. The filter sales business of fairly alon undertaken by Nippon Oil research company remains unchanged

at the end of 2000, it purchased stainless steel connectors Ltd, which produces stainless steel connectors, and incorporated it into the fluid connector group of the company to provide products for construction machinery and industrial machinery factories

at the end of 2000, the company purchased Italian s, which produces digital servo drives/systems for high-efficiency factory automation (FA). B。 C Company (S. B. C electronica S. PA Milan), incorporated into the company's electronic machinery department, has become a supply point of servo drives in North America and Europe, providing high-performance motion and control technologies and electronic drive systems to a wide range of manufacturing industries such as packaging, assembly, printing and fiber industries. The annual sales amount to 20million dollars

Parker invested 50% and sent staff to participate in the business and capital cooperation with Kuroda, a Japanese pneumatic component manufacturer, Established a new "Parker Kuroda" "Factory, the manufacturing and sales business points of pneumatic components, electric actuators, servo motors and other products in the automation field of the company have expanded to 35 countries.

in June 2001, Parker also signed an OEM cooperation with Toshiba, Japan, for high-pressure hydraulic components for construction machinery, mainly including oil pumps, hydraulic valves, rotary motors for excavators, and provided products to Parker's factories in Europe and the United States. Toshiba also plans to establish a local company in Shanghai." How to expand the sales of hydraulic components for construction machinery in China is an urgent problem to be solved by Parker

Japan's "miaoder" vacuum machine for FA also signed a trade contract with Parker to sell its products to the world through Parker. It is expected that miaoder products sold through Parker will reach 1billion yen by 2007.
