Better, Faster, Brighter - Austrian Quick Couplers and Lighting Solutions a Hit in the US

July 22, 2011

Companies Josef Martin and Tridonic celebrate success

To shorten the time for changing an excavator shovel down from an hour to 30 seconds does not only sound like a major achievement. The company Josef Martin could celebrate a major nationwide success with their patented quick couplers. Equally well received in the US were the connection technologies developed by Austrian company Tridonic.

The MARTIN branded M-Quick is a quick coupling system with a built-in automatic hydraulic coupling system. It enables the change of hydraulic attachments at the push of a button. In order to make their plan of expanding to the US reality, the company approached the Austrian Trade Commissions in the United States for assistance. The consulting and research process was over-the-top productive and resulted not only in connections to business partners, but also in the production of new equipment developed especially for the US market, reports the Austrian magazine FORMAT in its latest issue.

Another company who highly profited from the Advantage Austria concept was Tyrolian Tridonic. Major adjustments had to be made to adopt connection technology developed for European lighting systems for the US. Finally, connections to partners could be established with the help of the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers.
