Camso acquires Eurowheel in a transaction that expands its wheel manufacturing capacity and tire service business in Europe
Camso, formerly Camoplast Solideal, has announced a strengthened service offering in Europe and increase in wheel manufacturing capacity with the acquisition of Eurowheel, a long-time supplier of tire presses and small runs of wheels. Located in Herenthout, Belgium, Eurowheel is an established manufacturer of wheels, presses and tools for European distributors as well as OEMs across Europe.
“This acquisition will allow Camso to produce a greater volume and a wider range of wheels for resilient and press-on tires,” says Gregory Fossey, Vice President, EMEA - Aftermarket Division at Camso. “As a niche player in the off-the-road market, Camso aims to provide products and services to OEM and Aftermarket clients for special wheels and small order quantities; needs not met by any other company,” adds Fossey.
Adding Eurowheel’s manufacturing capacity to that of Camso’s will ensure more flexibility on wheel production and bring shorter lead times for customers. This benefits Camso’s European tire service business in Europe, but more specifically in Belgium, The Netherlands, UK and Germany.
Camso assumes responsibility for Eurowheel’s employees, facility, inventory and equipment. Employees from both organizations will collaborate together to build a larger, better team to ensure consistency in the quality of its products and services. “We will continue to build upon the expertise and processes that Eurowheel customers have grown accustomed to. We are confident the shared knowledge of the two teams will continue to provide a competitive and reliable wheel offering to customers,” concludes Fossey.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
