The Swedish investment company Solix has today acquired all shares in Terratech AB, with the daughter companies Steelwrist and SVAB Hydraulik.

Steelwrist manufactures tiltrotators, quick couplers and work tools for excavators, while SVAB Hydraulik produces control systems for tiltrotators and work tools.

The acquisition is part of Solix's strategy to acquire Nordic industrial companies with a strong product portfolio and with significant international growth potential.

Terratech passed half a billion in turnover in 2018 and is today established with its own organizations in 13 countries. Among the company's main products are tiltrotators and quick couplers, both hydraulic and fully automatic, which today are under strong international growth. In addition, Terratech has several new products such as Tool Recognition, Tool Tip Control and the Quantum control system platform, which together with tiltrotators and tools create very large productivity increases for excavators worldwide.

Both Steelwrist and SVAB work closely with several excavator manufacturers and the focus on OEM business will remain in the future.

"We have a very good and forward-thinking cooperation with our OEM customers. Our tiltrotators and quick couplers are increasingly mounted on the excavator directly from our customers excavator factory and with this we are able to support our own and our OEM customers' international expansion even faster. Also product development together with our most important customers will continue to be very high on the agenda", says Stefan Stockhaus, CEO of Terratech and Steelwrist.
