With two giants in the drives industry – Danfoss and Vacon – now successfully merged, we are confident when we say that a better tomorrow is driven by drives. And here are just five reasons why we will even go a step further by saying that a better tomorrow is driven by Danfoss Drives.
1. Bigger and better than before, we can offer more customer value
Danfoss Drives offers combined experience of 68 years and an extended portfolio of VACON® and VLT ® AC drives. Our 5,000 employees, situated all around the world, specialize in motor control related to all industries and applications. And around 1,000 of these highly valued professionals are dedicated to research and development. This guarantees our position as a technology trendsetter; able to push the boundaries of innovation to enable the world of tomorrow to do more with less.
We recognize and address the megatrends affecting the world today, and focus on innovating technology that tackles climate change, helps cope with rapid urbanization and ensures sustained water and wastewater management.
2. We are driven by drives
We are driven by drives and passionate about providing a competitive edge for our customers in key applications across various industries.
Danfoss Drives is unique in that it is 100% focused on developing, manufacturing and supplying AC drives. Our portfolio of high-quality, application-optimized products maximizes process performance, saves the most energy and minimizes emissions.
We are the AC drives partner that shares your goals. Our business and our brand are built on mutual trust and respect. In an ever-changing world, we place a high emphasis on speed and agility in all areas of our operations.
3. We are motor and system-independent
One concrete example of how we differ from our competitors is in our motor and system independence. Danfoss AC drives are independent of control systems and motor technology. This freedom enables you to choose the motor technology and motor manufacturer that best suit your application to ensure its peak performance and optimized energy consumption. Making the right choice of drive and optimizing your entire system creates potential energy savings of up to 60%.
4. Service is in our DNA
We are passionate about helping you get the most out of your applications by providing efficient lifecycle services. With centers of excellence in key regions, sales companies and service centers in more than 50 countries and an overall presence in more than 100 countries, Danfoss Drives has, beyond doubt, a global reach and a professional local touch. We aim to fulfill and even exceed our customers’ requirements by offering even closer cooperation and service excellence and ensuring the distance to products and support is minimal.
5. A sustainable future is in our hands
In 2025, we estimate that more than 5 billion people (over 50% of the estimated world population) will benefit directly or indirectly from the benefits provided by Danfoss Drives in their everyday lives. And the installed base of drives will be helping to save the annual equivalent of 60 hours of global energy consumption.
Wherever you are located, and whatever your end-use application, Danfoss Drives is your partner for successful and sustainable business.
