This new acquisition will enable Klubb to accelerate its international development thanks to Egi’s expertise in high-voltage insulated aerial platforms and vehicle mounted platforms for firefighting.
The KLUBB company, which designs and manufactures the KLUBB aerial lifts, announces the acquisition of EGI located near Charleville-Mézières in the East of France. EGI employs 35 people in two niche markets: aerial lifts for firefighting and in high-voltage insulated aerial platforms (18 to 65 m working heights).
EGI generates most of its turnover abroad. EGI products are used in areas difficult to access in Qatar, China or Chile to clean insulators on high voltage lines as an example. EGI has unique know-how that is recognized around the world.
“This acquisition will enable us to rapidly develop high voltage insulated platforms, which are in great demand in many international markets. We will be able to position ourselves in countries where we are not yet present and gain export market share. “stresses Julien Bourrellis president of Klubb.
The 12,000 m² factory is located on 7 hectares in the Ardennes and will allow the group to increase its annual production capacity.
“We are also pleased to announce that on this site we will continue to manufacture firefighting platforms on vehicles. EGI has established itself as a major player in this market and we are proud to ensure the continuity of this activity. Adds Bourrellis.
Nacelle Assistance and Services, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Group, will maintain and repair all EGI’s products. All the technicians are being trained on the specifics of the various models in order to be able to carry out any necessary repair or maintenance work
