Bosch Rexroth AG is an engineering firm based in Lohr am Main in Germany. It is the result of a merger on 1 May 2001, between Mannesmann Rexroth AG and the Automation Technology Business Unit of Robert Bosch GmbH, and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Robert Bosch GmbH.[3] Bosch Rexroth employs over 31,000 people worldwide, and achieved total revenue of 6.2 billion euro in 2021.[2]

In 2011 Bosch Rexroth acquired the hydraulic motor business formerly owned by Hägglund & Söner. The company maintains a manufacturing base in the Swedish town of Örnsköldsvik that was the home of Hägglund & Söner, and still manufactures products using the Hägglunds brand.[4][5][6]

Products and markets[edit]

Bosch Rexroth manufactures products and systems associated with the control and motion of industrial and mobile equipment, including the Hägglunds Drive Systems range shaft-mounted hydraulic motors.[5][7]

In 2017, the company announced a partnership with Trumpf and Heraeus to build servo valves using the former's TruPrint 5000 laser powder additive manufacturing machines to build a servo valve.[8]
