Camso acquires Metro Industrial Tire in US

Camso acquired Metro Industrial Tires, based in the greater Chicago area, to expand its off-highway transportation (OHT) tyre service and distribution presence in the country.

The transaction amount has not been disclosed.

Terming Chicago is one of the largest material-handling markets in the US, Bob Bulger, vice president and general manager, Camso North America, said "Metro had been a valued customer for many years with an exceptional service model. Over that time, a strong, long-term relationship has been formed that will benefit our already strong sales and service team."

Founded in 1983, Metro has employees based in two locations, south of metro Chicago, in Alsip and north of metro Chicago, in Lombard, Ill. Each location has a fleet of press trucks enabling them to provide best-in-class service levels to the market, said Camso.

"The acquisition of the material-handling solutions business from Metro will expand and strengthen the chain between tyre manufacturing, distribution and service for Camso," continued Bulger. "It will allow us to find new and innovative ways to meet our customers ever-changing needs for skid steer tyre, rubber tracks, foam-filled tyres, filled assemblies and ancillary products as well as service. This will benefit our fleet, national account, original equipment and equipment dealer customers."
