Jost International, the US subsidiary of German transport equipment specialist Jost, has now added Edbro hydraulic cylinders to its North American product portfolio.
The move comes two years after the Jost Group acquired the UK-based hydraulics company. The British brand has since been integrated into Jost’s product line-up, joining Rockinger, Tridec and Jost itself as the fourth main brand within the Group.
Since its inception in 1916, Edbro has been specialised in hoists for the tipping market. According to the company slogan, 'faster, lighter, stronger', product development and production are still focused on innovation, advanced material science and a quality finish.
The Edbro Ultra range of hydraulic cylinders now available in the US has been developed in line with that philopsphy, according to Jost. Reportedly, the Ultra range can help fleets achieve an estimated 20 per cent weight savings over competitive products, alongside faster tipping speeds.
