Rexroth acquires Oil Control

Bosch Rexroth has acquired specialist hydraulic and pneumatic valve manufacturer Oil Control in Coventry.

Effective from 1 January 2007, St Neots-based Bosch Rexroth acquired 100 per cent of the share capital of Oil Control. The change in ownership follows the Bosch Rexroth Group’s purchase of the Milan branch of Oil Control Group, which was completed in 2005.

Following a period of integration, the trade and business of Oil Control was transferred to Bosch Rexroth with effect from 1 August 2007 and will operate as part of the existing Hydraulics division of Bosch Rexroth Limited.

The existing Coventry based operation will be maintained and developed with the goal of providing the highest level of service to customers.

Rexroth supplies drive, control and motion technologies from mechanics, hydraulics and pneumatics through to electronics and the associated services for industrial and factory automation and mobile applications.
