Hansen Industrial Transmissions and Sumitomo's South American Sales Network

June 17, 2012

On March 31, 2011, Sumitomo Heavy Industries (SHI) acquired the shares of Hansen Industrial Transmissions NV (HIT).

On the first anniversary of the acquisition, HIT integrated with the Power Transmission & Controls group, which includes Sumitomo Machinery Corporation of America and its subsidiaries.  Both the Sumitomo and Hansen Industrial Transmissions organizations will continue to operate independently in North and Central America, while coordinating efforts to provide greater benefits to our customers.

On June 1, 2012, a full integration process for the South American marketplace was initiated with the repositioning of our sales channel.  Effective with this date, Sumitomo’s South American sales organization will be the new sales channel for Hansen Industrial Transmissions products.  Sumitomo will continue to utilize the authorized distributor network for Hansen Industrial Transmissions products in each country.

This integration provides the catalyst for becoming the industry leader in manufacturing the highest quality industrial gear boxes by making available the industry’s best network of trained professionals, dedicated to helping their customers and channels become more productive and profitable.

We value your past support and will continue to work hard to earn your future business.
