The best thing about HydX is their complete package, which gives us the hydraulics, software development and the remote control system.
Magnus Andersson, CEO of SPD
Scandinavian Pile Driving (SPD) is a relatively small company that converts digging machines into drill rigs with an aim to make work easier for the machine users. Its customers are foundation engineering companies, mainly within infrastructure projects such as road building, railways and building construction. Over the past decade, SPD has developed products that are attractive for customers. Now, the company is to be fine-tuned and structured for growth and the export market, primarily in Europe and the USA. HydX has proved to be an important element in the company’s success.
When SPD started its business in the early 2000s, the emphasis was mostly on individual construction projects and specialized solutions. It was as if the wheel had to be reinvented for each machine, which made for both an inefficient and not particularly profitable business. The founder and CEO, Magnus Andersson, not only saw the problem, but also the potential. He decided to do things differently by developing a product that was suitable for all applications, and put it into series production.
Driving the evolution of the product and making it multi-functional required more intelligence. In close cooperation with HydX, the companies are now generating innovations together. HydX contributes both the brain power and the muscles – the brain power in the form of product refinement regarding user-friendliness and cost-efficiency; and the muscles as supplier of the most important components (e.g. Danfoss PVG32 and Scanreco remote control).
In its strong relations with HydX, SPD has a source of unique expertise and does not need to employ its own experts. All three capabilities – hydraulics, radio control and control system – are on the market, but few companies can offer them in combination. HydX expertise helps SPD reach out to the world.
HydX is particularly pleased about the close and strong relations that the two companies have with each other. Not least, this promotes the development of new, advanced hydraulic solutions and also puts HydX firmly on the world map as a professional supplier.
In a somewhat wider perspective, SPD’s concept also increases the flexibility of contractors within the foundation reinforcement market. This flexibility leads to faster, more efficient work and associated cost savings.
