Berg to head Baldor’s Asia Pacific operations

Baldor has appointed Daniel Berg as Managing Director of its newly combined Asia Pacific operations.

Baldor acquired the Reliance electric motor and Dodge power transmission brands in February 2007, and the combined operation provides a resource to support regional industrial development with a comprehensive product range in this automation segment.

Daniel Berg assumes responsibility for one manufacturing facility and seven sales and support centres, in India, Singapore, Thailand, China, South Korea, Japan and Australia. He views the company’s energy efficient and special duty electric motors, and conveying systems, as core products for these markets.

“During the last few years Baldor has grown rapidly in the Asia Pacific region, largely because of its focus on energy-saving motors which greatly speed return on investment. Our new combined operation with the Reliance and Dodge brands adds very large motors and a complete portfolio of power transmission technologies, allowing us to provide complete turnkey solutions”, says Daniel Berg.

A 20-year veteran of Baldor, Daniel Berg was previously head of Baldor’s Southern Europe operations, which included responsibility for India.

“Many large-scale Asia-Pacific industrial users are currently investing in higher levels of automation, and Baldor has both the technology and the local resources to configure and deliver state of the art solutions with the added benefit of a platform o.ptimised for long-term, low-cost use”, adds Berg
