History
'Clark Automotive NV' was founded in 1969 in Brugge as a project of 'Clark Equipment' and 'La Brugeoise et Nivelles NV' to jointly produce powershift transmissions for the European market.  Two years later the facility, already employing 276 people, became a 100% daughter company of  'Clark Equipment Company'. 

During the following two decennia, as a result of a steady growth, the factory building was expanded several times .
In may 1995, after a bid for all the shares, the complete group 'Clark Equipment Company' changed hands to the American group 'Ingersoll Rand', although not for long.  On February 14th 1997, the final sell of the complete Clark-Hurth Components division to Dana Corporation took place.  Ever since, our company belongs to the Off-Highway Systems Group of Dana.  Hardly one month after the take-over, Brugge was entrusted with the development of all transmissions for the world market.  Financial means were allocated for the extension of a 'state-of-the-art' research- and development center.
