Following a September announcement, Moventas has officially reintroduced Santasalo as the brand for its industrial gears business and changed its group name.

The company says Santasalo is a major part of the group's history since the 1940s and a trademark that the company owns. Moventas will remain the brand name for renewable energy technology, such as wind gearboxes and related service.

Moventas has changed its group identity to Santasalo Moventas, which the company says will better reflect the two equally strong brands under its umbrella. Santasalo Moventas’ legal structure remains, but its operational structure will be divided over this winter. Both Santasalo and Moventas have launched new websites.
