THE Bosch group has taken over Nyquist B.V., based in Eindhoven (Netherlands). Nyquist is a manufacturer of electric motion control solutions, which combine drive and control functions in a single system.
With a workforce of around 50, Nyquist B.V. enjoyed sales of approximately 10 million Euro in the year 2004.
In terms of organisation, the Dutch company will be integrated in Bosch Rexroth AG.
“This strategic step will allow Bosch Rexroth to further expand its solution portfolio for the growth sectors of semiconductors and medical equipment manufacturing. With this acquisition, we will be able to offer extended solutions from the field of electric drive and control systems,” explained Manfred Grundke, chairman of the executive board of Bosch Rexroth. Bosch Rexroth has already successfully established itself as a supplier of linear motion and pneumatic systems in both these target markets.
