square meters and employs 22 people, and more are expected

other Kendrion locations.
New INTORQ brake for small motor applications
Kendrion Group of The Netherlands reports that its integration
of INTORQ GmbH has gone very well despite restrictions
imposed by the Corona pandemic. Known widely for its permanent
magnet brakes and holding magnets, Kendrion now
produces a full line of electromagnetic brakes, spring-applied
brakes and clutches for industrial applications as a result of the
merger early last year.
In other actions, Kendrion recently announced plans to close
its facility in the UK in September 2021, formerly known as
Binder Magnete, and is moving into an expanded facility in
India. The company reported in May that for the first quarter of
this year business was up about 5% overall compared to a year
ago, climbing to 115 Euro and reflecting a resurgence from the
pandemic.
" We have moved ahead very quickly
with the integration of INTORQ in terms
of organization and structure, " says Dr.
Andreas Laschet, director of the new business
unit Industrial Brakes at Kendrion.
He commented on the status of the integration
in January. " The INTORQ brand is
now part of the Industrial Brakes business
unit at Kendrion. Over the course of the
year, a very good team has been formed
here. " Main operation sites for the unit are
Kendrion's facility in Villengen and the
INTORQ site in Aerzen, both in Germany.
Triple the production capacity at new INTORQ India headquarters
Meanwhile, product development continues. In March of this
year, the company announced that its new INTORQ BFK551

Having a sophisticated design and space-saving structure with
rotor and flange, it is primarily designed for small motor applications
such as medical technology, automated guided vehicles,
conveyor technology and automation, also for door and gate
drives as well as access controls.

In February, Kendrion announced that it
has decided to transfer its operations from
Kendrion (UK) Ltd. to Kendrion (Villingen) GmbH in Germany
and close the facility in Bradford the end of September this
year. Formerly Binder Magnete (UK) Ltd, it has been part of the
Kendrion Group for more than 50 years, traditionally serving
UK power transmission market and, since 1997 becoming an
international sales and service center for the group, exporting
Kendrion products to over 100 countries. The business will be
shifted to Kendrion's new and modern warehouse located in
Villingen.
In support of expanding its capacities in Asia, INTORQ India
moved into new, larger facilities in Pune in May 2020. Construction
began in February 2019, well prior to the merger. Since the
old building was in need of renovation and offered no opportunities
for expansion, the company built a new building at a
location nearby. Several million euros were invested in the new
location, tripling the production capacity. The new headquarwww.MagneticsMag.com
