Trelleborg acquires French industrial tyre distributor
Through its Trelleborg Wheel Systems business area, Sweden’s Trelleborg AB has finalised the acquisition of French industrial tyre distributor D.G. Manutention Services SAS (DGMS), a company active in southern France and specialising in the distribution and service of industrial tyres, such as those fitted on forklifts. The transaction was consolidated on 1 February.
The acquired business has its head office in Marseille and achieved sales of approximately £3.9 million last year. Trelleborg describes its purchase of DGMS as a “bolt-on acquisition” and says it forms “part of Trelleborg’s strategy to strengthen its positions in attractive market segments.”
“The acquisition gives us the opportunity to expand our industrial tyre service concept while also allowing us to grow our service and distribution in Europe. It strengthens our entire supply chain, from manufacturing to service of industrial tyres,” comments Maurizio Vischi, president of the Trelleborg Wheel Systems business area.
