Haldex AB (originally Halda Fickurfabrik AB, then AB Halda Fabriker, and later Fabriks AB[5]), also known as Haldex Group, is a Swedish public company operating in the commercial vehicle industry. It is listed on the OMX Stockholm Stock Exchange (Mid Cap), and has an annual turnover of around 8,5 bn SEK.

Concentrating core activities in vehicle dynamics, the environment and safety, Haldex business operations are split into three divisions: Commercial Vehicle Systems, Hydraulic Systems, and its smallest division - Traction Systems - which is also known as Haldex Traction, and produces limited slip couplings for "on-demand" four-wheel drive systems.

Products are primarily brake systems,[4] technology for diesel engines, i.e. pumps and technology for reducing emissions of exhaust gases from engines, hydraulic systems and all-wheel-drive systems for passenger cars.

The company made two acquisitions in the United States since the late 1990's, Midland-Grau in 1998 and Neway/Anchorlok in 2002.[4]
