Following the acquisitions of equipment developer Jungo Voirie and contract manufacturer Hecker & Brian, Nilfisk-Advance has created a separate outdoor division. ‘By integrating all outdoor capabilities and competencies the Nilfisk-Advance Group will ensure strong and dedicated focus on the unique needs of the customers within the outdoor cleaning business.
‘The acquisition of Jungo Voirie and Hecker & Brian and the establishment of an outdoor division is a part of Nilfisk-Advance’s strategy to grow in both existing and new markets on a global level,’ said an 11 July press release.
The acquisitions, effective from 1 July 2011, are expected to deliver significant growth to the Nilfisk-Advance Group in the compact outdoor cleaning market.
“The acquisitions are a natural extension of the acquisition of Egholm earlier this year, and will further improve our ability to deliver high-quality, multi-purpose equipment to especially municipalities around the globe,” commented Jørgen Jensen, president and CEO of Nilfisk-Advance.
“Besides the highly competitive multi-purpose machine, the JungoJet 3500, the acquisitions also provide access to additional development resources that can ensure the future continuous development of our sub-compact and compact outdoor cleaning range,” he added.
