Published:  22 May, 2012

MANCHESTER: Construction products manufacturer Hilti, has completed the purchase of Eurofox Gmbh, the façade technology design and manufacturing business based in Austria.

The acquisition will see the Eurofox product range sold through Hilti in the UK and Ireland. A new 'national building envelope' team has been established comprising seven Hilti account managers.

Gareth Prosser, Hilti's steel and metal trade manager for Northern Europe, said: "This is a critical step for both companies as it now allows Hilti to offer the full solution for ventilated façade substructure. We can now meet all customer's needs for positioning and measuring tools, drilling tools and consumables, anchoring systems, brackets and profiles, screw systems and firestop.

"Eurofox is a market leading brand in the UK and under this new partnership with Hilti, it is set to grow bigger and better than before."
