Avure Technologies AB, headquartered in Västerås, Sweden, has changed its name to Quintus Technologies AB. The US subsidiary, based in Columbus, Ohio is already named Quintus Technologies, LLC. Avure Technologies Inc. in the US will continue to focus on high pressure processing (HPP) food processing machines, and Quintus Technologies in Sweden and the US will continue to focus on high pressure metal working and material densification equipment for the manufacturing industry.
“Quintus Technologies is the undisputed leader within high pressure technology. Stemming from the Swedish electro technical company ABB, we have over 60 years of experience of developing, building and installing systems for customers within the automotive and aerospace sectors and general industry,” stated Jan Söderström, CEO of Quintus Technologies.
The Quintus press was the world’s first high pressure press, a design that was used to manufacture synthetic diamonds and other products.
“The name Quintus Technologies underlines that we continue to focus on industrial customers requiring systems for sheet metal forming or systems for cold or hot isostatic pressing. The re-naming is a small part of a substantial effort now launched to strengthen our offer and our position on all markets, from Europe to the Americas and especially Asia. The strong history of the Quintus name will help us to release the full potential,” added Söderström.
