Hydraulic loader crane specialist Palfinger UK has acquired Truck Hydraulic Services Ltd in the United Kingdom.

The acquisition of THS, based at Bardon in the English Midlands, was effective 1 April.

Commenting on the deal Alan Johnson, Palfinger UK managing director, said, “The acquisition of Truck Hydraulic Services Ltd aligns with Palfinger UK’s strategic aspirations to bolster its support of field service operation and workshop capabilities throughout the Midlands. Bridging the gap between depots in Devizes and Bradford creates an even more accessible business with scale to meet our customer’s needs.”

Palfinger UK confirmed all THS staff were taken on as Palfinger UK employees.

The UK distributor for Palfinger lorry cranes and Epsilon construction, recycling and forestry cranes is the largest in the country. It offers in-house assembly and mounting of cranes on trucks, body-building and servicing.
