26th September 2011 Sonceboz has announced that they will cease production of their Brushless DC motor family (5455 series) at the end of 2011. With the increasing demand for new technologies such as the 'Load-sense' motors, this decision will allow Sonceboz to reorganise some manufacturing areas for the deployment of new assembly lines for 2012. The latest time to place an order for these motors will be 31st October 2011 for deliveries up to the end of January 2012 at the latest. If you are a user of this motor you are strongly advised to place any spares orders you have coming up NOW to avoid disappointment.
