Rubix is pleased to announce the purchase of Geartech in line with the Group’s network development strategy.

Geartech is a specialist distributor of gearboxes, transmissions and electrical motors and is rated as a “BEST” distributor by Bonfiglioli in Norway.

This transaction strengthens Rubix’s position in the Norwegian power transmission market.

Geartech was founded in 1996 and passed to its current owners through a management buyout in 2005. Operating from a single site near Oslo, the business generates sales of over NOK 30m per year.

Frank Brodrick, MD Rubix Nordics, said: “I’m looking forward to working with my new colleagues from Geartech as we continue to build our business in Norway and across the Nordics.

“The Geartech team will work closely with our engineering team and use our assembly centre in Helsingborg, Sweden, enhancing the service we can provide to our customers.”
