Yanmar to purchase Terex's compact construction equipment business
Yanmar Holdings Co., Ltd. has concluded a final agreement with Terex Corporation to acquire Terex's European compact construction equipment business for approximately US$60 million. Through this business, Terex carries out the production and sale of wheel loaders, midi/mini excavators, wheel excavators, and other products in Europe. Included in the acquisition are the manufacturing facility located in Crailsheim, Germany, and a parts distribution centre located in Rothenberg, Germany.
The acquisition will allow Yanmar to further actively develop its business in the small to medium-sized construction machinery market in Europe by collectively utilizing the sales and service networks, and the industry’s top-class product development and production knowhow of both companies. The acquisition is expected to be completed during the autumn of 2016 after the approval of Terex's shareholders and regulating authorities and the completion of all other required procedures.
