STOCKHOLM, Oct. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Husqvarna Group's Construction Division has acquired the Concrete Power Trowel business from Wacker Neuson Group.
"Power trowels complement our current range in a great way, connecting the entire process from ground compaction to polished concrete floors, and fits well into our divisional strategy to grow our Concrete Surfaces and Floors business. With the addition of the ride-on trowels we will now have a complete offering for concrete surfacing and polishing which will add great value to our customers," says Henric Andersson, President Construction Division.
