A new standalone company has been created out of the former pneumatics business unit at Bosch Rexroth. Due to a change of ownership, the medium-sized company is now ready to take on the competition around the world under the name Aventics.

“The new name combines the terms of advantage, invention and pneumatics, and therefore describes what we are aiming for: our customers will get added value with our innovative products, system solutions, and services,” said Dr. Alexander Lawrence, one of the three members of the Board at Aventics GmbH.

Under the new name, the manufacturer of pneumatic components and systems intends to further expand its market position. In the future, Aventics will also address industries that the company has not focused on previously, including heavy industry and medical technology. 

“We are connecting the best of two worlds: in Aventics, a long tradition and the solid expertise of our employees meets the flexibility of a medium-sized company,” said Dr. Lawrence. “We are taking the valve series from the AV product family in a new direction without denying its roots. We are combining a new diagonal design concept with 40 years of experience in the integration of high-performance polymers and electronic engineering.” 

The compact construction and low weight of the AV valves result in improved energy efficiency and more freedom for machine layouts, the company said.
