Aebi Schmidt and Tellefsdal announce strategic partnership

Tellesdal

Aebi Schmidt, the leading European provider of winter and municipal maintenance equipment, takes a share of 50% in the Norwegian winter service manufacturer Tellefsdal AS. This partnership will in particular strengthen the market position in Scandinavia and Eastern Europe. With a wide-ranging product portfolio of high-quality tractor/wheel loader attachments, Tellefsdal AS is counted among the leading manufacturers in this market segment, reaching far beyond the borders of Norway.

 

In addition to decades of experience in the development, production and distribution, the two companies share exceedingly high standards regarding the quality and longevity of products designed for professional municipal winter service applications. This is associated with a customer support and service programme tailored to customer needs.

 

Tellefsdal AS has successfully completed a comprehensive investment and relocation programme during the last two years. Due to the partnership with Aebi Schmidt also the strategic future of the company is now secured. The business operation of Tellefsdal AS still remains in today's operational management. Personnel cutbacks are not intended. In a further step Aebi Schmidt will acquire the remaining shares from the current owners by the end of 2015 and thus become sole owner of the Tellefsdal AS.
