Fassi Gru acquires Marrel
By Laura Hatton02 August 2013
Italian hydraulic truck loader crane manufacturer Fassi Gru has acquired French company Marrel, a manufacturer of hook lifts, skip loaders, tipper scissors and hydraulic cylinders.
The move is a joint partnership with Miltra, Fassi’s French distributor.
Roger Boutonnet, owner of Miltra, said, "Miltra and Fassi Gru have a solid and longstanding collaboration behind them; our determination, in addition to our tested understanding, has prompted us to undertake this important investment.”
Fassi intends to offer products from Marrel alongside its articulated cranes. Marrel is based in Andrézieux-Bouthéon, close to Lyon.
