Magog, Quebec, Canada-based Camso says it is growing its material handling distribution and tire service footprint in southern Texas through the acquisition of Omni Industrial Tire, which has four locations in that state.
Camso bills Omni Industrial as the second largest tire specialist in Texas, with four locations and “a well-established reputation.” Omni offers a variety of solid and pneumatic tires for fork lifts and skid steer loaders.
“The acquisition of Omni Industrial Tire will enable Camso to further penetrate the Texas market and consolidate its leadership position in this region,” says Bob Bulger, vice president and general manager of Solideal On-Site Service, a Camso operating unit. “Omni has a strong and respected name in Texas, and shares our unique view of providing OTR (off-the-road) mobility solutions.”
The material handling equipment market in Texas represents a great opportunity for Camso for tire distribution and for its service division, Solideal-On-Site Service, says the company. “Omni joins our service organization and will help us continue to deliver the highest level of commitment in industrial tire service,” says Bulger.
Camso engages in the design, manufacturing and distribution of OTR tires, wheels, rubber tracks and undercarriage systems to serve the material handling, construction, agricultural and power sports industries. The company employs more than 7,500 people and operates research centers and manufacturing plants in North and South America, Europe and Asia.
