Solideal On-Site Service has acquired FTS.
Tyre manufacturer Camso has extended its presence in the UK with the acquisition of Forklift Tyre Specialists Hull (FTS) through its Solideal On-Site Service division.
Located in Hull, FTS is a major tyre provider in the northern part of the UK. With more than 40 years of experience in the industrial tyre industry, FTS will help Solideal On-Site Service expand its nationwide coverage.
"This is a strategic acquisition that will go a long way in improving our service coverage in the North East region of the UK and will fill a gap we currently have close to the port area of Hull," says Gregory Fossey, vice-president, aftermarket in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. "With FTS located an hour away from our closest service centre, our customers in this area will have quicker access to tyre replacement services," he continues.
Fossey sees FTS as "a great addition to Camso's Solideal On-Site Service footprint (which) will contribute to enhancing the company's overall customer experience".
Camso, headquartered in Canada, is a leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of off-road tyres, wheels, rubber tracks and undercarriage systems to serve the materials handling, construction, agricultural and powersports industries.
