The global AC drives manufacturer Vacon has strengthened its foothold and ability to offer better services for its local and global customers in Poland by opening a sales company in Warsaw, the capital.

Vacon will acquire the AC drives business operations of Telko-Poland, a Polish subsidiary of Finland-based Kaukomarkkinat. The business operations and the personnel will be consolidated into the Vacon Group. Vacon and Telko-Poland have been partnering in Poland for approximately twenty years since 1994.

“Vacon has had a distributor agreement with Telko-Poland for a number of years. Poland is a strongly developing and stable market, and this acquisition of business operations further strengthens our presence in the country. It also allows us to offer even more comprehensive services to our local and global OEM and brand-label customers,” explained Thomas Thörewik, vice president, Northern and Eastern Europe at Vacon.

“We aim to grow significantly faster than the market, and that means we will have to expand our activities to new areas and to new channels. Our own operations in Poland will support this strategy and also strengthen Vacon’s brand awareness,” concluded Thörewik.
