Redex Group announced today the acquisition of ANDANTEX USA Inc.
Andantex USA has been selling and servicing Redex Group products in North America for the past 40 years. Redex Group has been looking to expand their American operations and to increase their services. The customer base has grown so much that it has become important to expand our local support. Andantex USA was the logical choice to achieve this goal. Redex Group manufactures high-precision machine tool power transmission products, including zero-backlash planetary reducers with high-quality racks and pinions, two-speed spindle drive gearboxes, magnetic powder clutches and brakes, spiral bevel gearboxes, speed increasers and industrial differentials.
Andantex USA shareholders welcomed this opportunity to pass on their legacy to another family-owned business and their shared beliefs in customer-oriented products.
We believe this synergy will benefit our customers by providing better support and direct access to the manufacturer.
“This is a logical decision, REDEX has been our partner from the foundation of ANDANTEX USA in 1980, both companies are family-owned with long-term strategies, this decision maintains the spirit of ANDANTEX; strong application engineering and full support to our customers. This is the best decision possible for our team and for our customers” says Mike Munn CEO of ANDANTEX.
“I want to thank Mike Munn and his family for choosing REDEX to write a new chapter in the successful history of ANDANTEX USA. We have decided to invest heavily in North America and reinforce ANDANTEX USA. There are many technological breakthroughs that originated from US companies, our know-how in Power Transmission and machine building is at the heart of those technology changes in automotive, energy and aerospace industries.
