Schaeffler has completed the acquisition of Ewellix
The Schaeffler Group completed the acquisition of Ewellix on January 3, 2023. This starts a new era for Ewellix being part of a large industrial group with a strong focus on industrial applications.
Ewellix will be operated as an additional business that works closely with the Schaeffler Industrial team. “This will enable us to continue our agile way of working in the future”, says Daniel Westberg, CEO of Ewellix.
