Volvo Construction Equipment and Steelwrist AB (in which Volvo has a minority shareholding) have announced that the latter will now supply Volvo with factory-fitted quick couplers in addition to the tiltrotators it already supplies.

Steelwrist’s new quick coupler technology is designed to always maintain the attachment in a safe position, even if the operator should fail in the connection procedure. “The Volvo CE quick coupler strategy is based on the Symmetrical Quick Coupler standard and Steelwrist’s patented front pin lock coupler technology,” explained Karl Serneberg, Volvo CE’s global director of attachments.

“Our strategic partnership with Steelwrist gives us a competitive advantage in this area.” Koen Sips, vice president of Customer Solutions at Volvo CE agreed, commenting: “With Volvo’s global presence and Steelwrist’s unique product features I am confident that this closer cooperation will drive a significant growth of the attachment business.”

“A lot of effort has been put into our casted quick coupler technology,” concluded Stefan Stockhaus, CEO, Steelwrist AB. “We wanted to build a product that takes safety to a new level yet maintains a compact design that is so crucial for fuel efficiency and productivity. We are happy that this is recognized by Volvo CE.”
