LM Wind Power
LM Wind Power was formed in 2009, when the world’s largest independent wind turbine blade manufacturer LM Glasfiber (acquired by Fund III in May 2001) merged with the leading supplier of hydraulic brake systems for the wind industry Svendborg Brakes (acquired by Fund V in August 2008).
With production, sales and service facilities in more than 25 locations across 11 countries, the company is the only independent blade and brake supplier with global operations.
This global reach ensures close contact to international customers and enables the group to minimise transport and logistics costs, shorten delivery time and reduce working capital requirements. The company’s size also provides valuable economies of scale in research and development, procurement and manufacturing.
LM Wind Power’s customer base includes the world’s largest wind turbine suppliers and high potential entrants to the industry.
