The new name is AVENTICS, which company officials say combines the terms:Advantage, Invention and Pneumatics. In addition to established products and markets, new industries will be addressed.


With a new name, and a new company structure, AVENTICS established global headquarters in Laatzen, Germany, near Hannover. “The new name combines the terms of advantage, invention, and pneumatics, and therefore describes what we are aiming for. Our customers will get added value with our innovative products, system solutions, and services,” explained Dr. Alexander Lawrence, one of three members of the Board at AVENTICS GmbH.

Under the new name, the manufacturer of pneumatics components and systems intends to further expand its market position.
