TVH takes EPW
Belgium based replacement parts specialist TVH has acquired the assets of Fresno, California based Equipment Parts Wholesale, which specialises in the supply of replacement parts and components to the aerial lift industry.
Going forward EPW will serve as a sales division of TVH and will continue to focus on the aerial lift equipment market and the equipment rental industry under the EPW brand.
TVH vice president Dirk von Holt said: “There was an opportunity to acquire the assets of EPW which aligns with the strategy of our company to increase our product selection to include other industrial equipment segments”.
“The staff at EPW has a wealth of product knowledge and industry experience which TVH intends to combine with its knowledge base and distribution network to enhance service and product availability to customers of both companies. We believe this will offer considerable advantages and opportunities to all customers, furthering the One-Stop-Shop experience TVH has been providing to customers for over 45 years.”
EPW general manager Brian MacFarland added: “We welcome the support that TVH can bring to our efforts to provide a full range of products and ensure a reliable supply in well-located distribution points throughout North America”.
EPW was founded in 2001 and had overlapping ownership with aerial lift manufacturer Mec aerial work platforms.
