Nilfisk acquires North American high pressure cleaner specialist Hydro Tek
Nilfisk Group has acquired Hydro Tek, the California-based manufacturer of high pressure cleaners.
Hydro Tek has a strong position in the high pressure market, and the acquisition significantly increases Nilfisk's market reach in this business throughout North America.
Hydro Tek has a diverse product offering and the company is particularly strong in the range of hot water petrol-based pressure washers. Sales are spread across the country through a strong distributor and dealer network.
"The combination of Hydro Tek and Nilfisk creates a strong position for Nilfisk in the commercial high-pressure washer business in the Americas, a market where Nilfisk has not yet had a significant presence," says Jonas Persson, president and CEO of Nilfisk Group.
"It is a key element in Nilfisk's strategy to continuously look for opportunities to grow our business and grow market shares. The acquisition of Hydro Tek expands the product portfolio in the Group and widens the dealer network for increased sales and distribution of our products."
Hydro Tek was founded in 1985 and as well as developing, manufacturing and selling commercial pressure washers, it has additional business in water recovery and treatment systems, as well as trailers and accessories.
