Husqvarna Acquires Wacker Neuson product line of glazers
Published: 9/12, 2019
Husqvarna Construction Equipment recently announced the purchase of Wacker Neuson Group’s concrete glazers product line. The move further strengthens Husqvarna’s position in the concrete floor treatment sector.
The new range of glazers is an excellent complement to Husqvarna’s current range, covering the entire process from soil compaction to polished concrete floors. The addition of the Wacker Neuson ride-on glazers enables Husqvarna to offer a complete package for concrete coating and polishing, while also gaining a market-leading position for hand-guided glazers. Husqvarna will also continue development of its recently launched Hipertrowel concept by optimizing the machine, diamond tools, and chemicals to be at the forefront of the increased demand for concrete polishing glosses.
Production of the glazers will be moved to Husqvarna’s factory in Olathe, Kan., during the fourth quarter of 2019. At World of Concrete 2020, Husqvarna will launch its branded glazer product range, with all models ready for immediate delivery.
Customers will benefit by having Husqvarna as a partner with a complete supplier for concrete coating and polishing. Husqvarna reputation for creating innovative, integrated, and customer-focused solutions that focus on productivity will also be applied to further improving its new line of glazers.
As part of the agreement, Husqvarna will manufacture glazers on behalf of Wacker Neuson in 2020, and provide follow-up support these to those products in the future.
