Dedicated team will provide greater expertise and resources to customers 


Danfoss Drives is pleased to announce the formation of its Marine business unit. With a team of dedicated experts, Danfoss will be able to provide tailored solutions for its customers in the marine industry. This enhanced commitment comes at a critical time for the industry, as it looks to reduce environmental impact while improving efficiency and lowering operating costs. 

In addition to product experts in the field, marine customers will also have access to the testing and development capabilities at Danfoss Drives’ Application Development Center (ADC) in Loves Park, Ill.

“The ADC is a maker space for testing solutions at the forefront of electrification and the marine industry with our partners. It is an investment locally, further proof of how Danfoss is transferring years of Nordic heritage and marine expertise into the evolving Americas maritime market,” said Clayton Gibbons, Head of Electrification and System Drives, Americas and Head of Marine and Electrification Sales, North America, Danfoss Drives. “Agility and specialized knowledge empower us to deliver tailor-made solutions that not only meet but exceed the stringent requirements of the maritime sector.” 

This organization allows Danfoss to delve deep into the intricacies of maritime applications and understand the nuances of ship propulsion, control systems and electrification in ways that broader, more diversified companies might not. Danfoss’ commitment to the marine sector enables the company to develop innovative technologies specifically designed to optimize efficiency, reduce environmental impact and elevate performance standards for vessels of all types and sizes. 

Danfoss’ concentration of expertise, resources and innovation will enable all Marine stakeholders to benefit from reliable, energy-efficient and environmentally conscious solutions. Through collaboration, integrity and a passion for excellence, Danfoss aims to exceed customer expectations, contribute to a sustainable planet and drive positive change.
