With this step, the company is further expanding the portfolio of its Construction Equipment EU strategic business unit
On June 26, 2017, the Zeppelin Group acquired shares in INTRAC Polska, thereby extending its activities in Poland. INTRAC Polska provides sales and service for MANITOU handling technology, and will now be integrated into Zeppelin Sp. z o.o., a subsidiary of Zeppelin CZ s.r.o. This acquisition means that the Zeppelin Group is strengthening its competitive position in Poland, while also offering improved local access to customers.
As part of the acquisition, the Zeppelin Group will be taking over the sales of machinery and spare parts, as well as servicing for MANITOU equipment at five sites in Poland. “With this acquisition, we are broadening our product portfolio, while also increasing our coverage of the Polish construction machinery market,” commented Jan Grünwald, CFO of Zeppelin CZ s.r.o. “The Polish market offers potential for growth, and, as a result, I view this acquisition as a logical step toward strengthening our company on the local market.” Jan David, Managing Director of Zeppelin Polska Sp. z o.o. added: “Furthermore, the INTRAC site network offers improved local access to both existing and new customers.” “We will be responsible for 40 extra employees as part of the acquisition.”
