KENT, England—Off-road tire and track specialist Camso Ltd. has acquired Southern Industrial Tyres Ltd. of Kent, a longtime distributor for Camoplast and Solideal products, in a strategic effort to strengthen its materials-handling tire distribution and service business in the U.K.
“The addition of Southern Industrial Tyres and its team to the Camso family is an important and valued move for us,” said Gregory Fossey, vice-president, material handling, Europe, Middle East and Africa, at Camso, formerly known as Camoplast Solideal.
Southern Industrial Tyres has built a reputation by having a self-sufficient on-site service for fleet checks, tire fitment, professional wheel exchange, foam filling and puncture proofing, as well as environmental disposal, Camso said.
This acquisition provides complementary offerings in line with the company's vision for tire service, Camso said, bringing a greater capacity to serve its already strong client base faster and better.
“We will continue to build upon the more than 40 years of dedicated, professional and passionate service that Southern Industrial Tyres' customers have come to expect, for all their industrial tire needs,” Fossey said.
Camso did not disclose the value of the acquisition, Southern Industrial's sales or its staffing level.
Southern Industrial notes on its website it serves customers throughout southeast England, all London boroughs and the greater London metropolitan area.
