Welcome to Dellner Brakes
Dellner Brakes AB is a Swedish company that develops, manufactures, markets and maintains brake solutions for industrial and marine applications. The company was founded in 1941 by Master of Science Jan Dellner. Since then, we have been a part of the Dellner Group of companies that has production or service offices in every part of the world.
In September 2017, we acquired US brake and clutch company Gummi USA, extending our product range to include high quality pneumatic drum shaft brakes, reduction gear clutches, torsional couplings and rotary unions.
In January 2018, the Dellner Group acquired German industrial brake manufacturer Pintsch Bubenzer, in a deal that is paving the way for the companies’ rapid global expansion.
In September 2018, Dellner Brakes acquired German wind turbine brake specialist JHS Jungblut to strengthen the company’s offering in the wind energy market and enable further global expansion, particularly in the Far East.
Hard at work, all over the world
Our technologically advanced systems and products are used in a variety of industries including marine, renewables, oil and gas drilling, mining, quarrying, pulp and paper manufacture.
Dellner Brakes is a world leader in marine braking applications. Our products are mounted in large military ships, oil tankers, freight ships, ferries, luxury yachts, prestigious cruise liners such as Queen Mary 2 and sailing ships such as the Gothenburg, a replica of an original ship launched in 1738. You can also find our products hard at work in cranes, winches and industrial vehicles.
We operate globally and most of our customers are located in Scandinavia, the USA, Europe, Asia and Australia.
World beating products – continuous innovation
Our superior, cost effective systems, products and components come in a range of standard sizes and our Gummi USA-branded clutch and brake configurations are fully interchangeable with all other clutch brands in the market today.
And if you need something custom built, then our expert teams regularly work with customers to develop tailor made systems that perfectly match their requirements.
Producing customised products in close collaboration with our customers is part of our day-to-day work and, using different combinations of our own standard products, we can develop competitively priced, customised solutions for a wide variety of applications. It was requirements from a world-leading, renowned propeller manufacturer that led to the development of our unique STL™ (stopping, turning, locking) system – and several of our locking modules are based on products originally devised for a multinational motor manufacturer. We have also repeatedly succeeded in taking the learnings and solutions we have developed for one industry to benefit another. Innovation is at our core, and is something we pride ourselves on.

Cleaner and greener
As an organisation, we have strong environmental credentials. We have developed the world’s first all electric ‘stopping, turning, locking’ (STL) system in direct response to the increased global focus on green issues. Our new BUEL STL system is environmentally friendly too, using only half a litre of high performance synthetic oil, compared to as much as 30 litres of hydraulic oil in standard hydraulic power units.
Our wind business Dellner Brakes JHS has ISO certification for environmental management and has made noise reduction the core focus of product development, recognising that noise prevention plays a substantial role in the overall acceptance of wind energy. Dellner Brakes JHS products set standards for the wind industry and are used worldwide by nearly all leading manufacturers of wind power plants.
We love brake systems!
Dellner Brakes’ ambition is to always offer the market’s best brake solutions. That means that, while our products may not always have the lowest initial price, on the whole a brake solution from us will save you money in the long run. As a Dellner Brakes customer, you can count on reliable products of the best quality and a partner with great, personal commitment and a keen interest in all kinds of brake solutions.
With Dellner Brakes, every customer is a VIP
Every one of our customers is assured of priority treatment – from the individual farmer needing a new brake for a windmill to leading multi-national manufacturers of, for example, mining equipment, propulsion (axle lines/gear boxes) or cranes. Flexibility is a watchword and a ‘normal’ order could be anything from a single item to thousands of units. As well as development, manufacturing and sales, Dellner Brakes also offers professional, on-site field service.
Fast and flexible
Our company is small and flexible, which allows us to adapt quickly to meet changing market and customer needs. And, through the global Dellner Group, we also benefit from access to production, sales and service facilities all over the world.
From our two large stock facilities in Borlange, Sweden and Houston, Texas – and working with a global network of dedicated contractors and distributors – we can ship any component or spare part anywhere in the world in just 24 hours. We also stock a range of finished clutch / brake units and critical spare parts for ‘stopping, turning, locking’ and compact powered safety brake systems.
Our customers stay with us a long time
Quality combined with perceptiveness and a genuine commitment has resulted in our collaborating with many of our customers for more than 20 years, some for as long as 40 years. Our staff enjoys their workplace, which is shown by Dellner Brakes’ low staff turnover.
“Dellner Brakes shall with great human commitment and high flexibility, be the market’s natural first choice in STL-systems”
