Danfoss adds North American footprint for electrification and expands in the on-highway market

After receiving final approval, Danfoss has announced the closing of the deal to acquire all outstanding common shares of UQM Technologies, Inc., a developer of alternative energy technologies. 

UQM is a leading expert and the technology leader in motors and inverters in the power range of up to 250kW. With the acquisition, Danfoss adds an important and complementary technology to its current product range, with inverter and motor solutions up to 6MW of power. The acquisition will give Danfoss the total package of electric solutions for serving its global markets and fully support its customers’ needs, regardless of the chosen applications. It will also enable further growth in the markets the company serves and additional growth in the on-highway market for buses and trucks. With UQM, Danfoss Editron, Danfoss Drives and Danfoss Silicon Power, Danfoss now has a strong line-up of electrification solutions for the marine, off- and on-highway and oil and gas markets. 

Image

“Already today we have a very broad portfolio of solutions, which plays a vital role in combating climate change and air pollution. With this acquisition, our third within electrification, we have added a well-established North American presence within electrification, which nicely complements our global footprint. With the strong North American presence, we cement our leading position in the marine and off-highway, and now also in the on-highway markets and it enables us to stay a relevant technology partner and serve our customers where they are,” says Kim Fausing, President & CEO, Danfoss. 

UQM is headquartered in Longmont, Colorado, USA and will become part of the Danfoss Power Solutions segment.

“Danfoss EDITRON, the world’s most sophisticated electric drivetrain system, is already in serial production and being used by customers around the world in the marine, off-highway and on-highway sectors. With the acquisition of UQM, we increase our manufacturing capabilities, which will supplement and enhance Danfoss’ existing market-leading position in electrifying traditional heavy-duty industries and applications. I’m very happy to welcome the UQM team to Danfoss and to our business,” says Eric Alström, President, Danfoss Power Solutions.       

“The next chapter for UQM is about to begin, but we couldn’t have made it here without the loyal longstanding support of our customers, employees and shareholders. We are looking forward to transforming the electric vehicle market and play a pivotal role in improving the environment for decades to come,” says Joe Mitchell, UQM Technologies’ President and Chief Executive Officer.

Upgrade Pack Hits $4.1m Private Investment, and Appoints David Brownlow as Chairman

Image

• New $1.5m private financing led by David Brownlow and Ben Rawson, of Havisham Group, brings London FinTech’s total funding to $4.1m as it expands into North America and Asia Pacific
• Board appoints British entrepreneur, investor and philanthropist David Brownlow CVO DL as Chairman
• Launching imminently, the scaleup’s first-to-market app, provides exclusive flight and hotel upgrades as part of a loyalty-based membership

UK FinTech scaleup Upgrade Pack has announced a new $1.5 million (£1.3m) private investment round, bringing total funds raised for its exclusive travel upgrades platform to $4.1m (£3.4m) since launching 12 months ago.

The raise continues the company’s strategy of growth through private investment rather than venture capital as it looks to transform the market for flight and hotel upgrades. Delivered as an app, Upgrade Pack connects directly to airline and hotel APIs, enabling users to access live, premium seat and room upgrades at a typical saving of 15% to 35% through its closed online marketplace.

The latest round, which now values the company at $18m (£15m), will see prominent entrepreneur, investor and philanthropist David Brownlow join the Board as company Chairman. The new capital will help drive Upgrade Pack’s expansion into North America and Asia-Pacific as it rolls out its service to clients, partners, and users worldwide. The company’s £500,000 Seedrs campaign in April was oversubscribed in just five days as anticipation of the app continues to grow.

Company Founder and Group CEO Craig Unsworth commented: “It was clear right from introducing David to our platform that he understood the value of what we’re creating, and matched our ambition to bring something entirely new to the market. Having someone of David’s calibre and experience will be invaluable as we expand into North America, and Asia Pacific this year.”

David Brownlow is co-founder of resourcing firm Huntswood and investment firm Havisham Group, the latter of which has invested in new and early stage businesses across a wide range of industries including software and technology. David is Vice-Chairman of Campaigning for the Conservative Party, having been appointed to the role in 2017, and is well-known for his numerous philanthropic activities. He was appointed Deputy to the Lord Lieutenant of the Royal County of Berkshire in 2018, has worked extensively with HRH The Prince of Wales’ charities, and also featured in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List of 2018 when he was appointed a Commander of the Royal Victorian Order (CVO).

David Brownlow commented: “I’m delighted to join Upgrade Pack as Chairman during this exciting phase of growth. Its innovative, easy-to-use technology is a game-changer within customer loyalty, and I look forward to seeing users and clients alike derive huge value from this transformative platform.”

Upgrade Pack is also announcing two new hubs for its global expansion – Toronto for North America and Singapore for Asia Pacific, with further details on its growth strategy and key management in each region to be revealed in the months ahead.

Fluenta announces new partnership with TechStar

Image

Fluenta, a global leader in ultrasonic measurement and management technology for the oil and gas and chemical processing industries, today announces its partnership with TechStar. With more than 30 years’ experience in the oil and gas industry, TechStar will represent Fluenta’s gas measurement technology in the key territories of Texas, New Mexico, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Kansas.

Recent EPA regulation has further tightened US requirements on the measurement and reporting of flare gas emissions. It is now more important than ever for companies to have reliant meters to produce precise data. The Fluenta FGM160 flare gas meter allows for highly accurate measurement of a wide range of flare parameters and will help operators comply with national and international regulations.

Arnold Rivas-Griswold, Vice President Americas at Fluenta, commented, “there’s no more important market in the Americas than Texas, so having the right representation in this territory is crucial for our success. In TechStar, we have found a partner who understands our market and our customers and can offer exceptional service across a wide geographical area. We’re certain that this relationship will be successful and long lasting”.

Kyle Kuhlow, President of TechStar, added, “Fluenta offers us a great product and is a fantastic fit for the TechStar portfolio. Our teams have a solid understanding of both flow measurement and the flare gas space. We already have active enquiries from our loyal customer base and are certain we can offer significant added value to Fluenta’s presence in the Americas.
