Amerex, a leader in the manufacture of hand portable extinguishers and fixed special-hazard fire suppression systems, today announced that it has completed the acquisition of Solberg Scandinavian AS, one of the largest independent firefighting foam agent manufacturers in Europe.
“This strategic acquisition enables Amerex to uniquely bring advanced, environmentally sustainable firefighting foam technology to the Americas, and will give us a global footprint as a full-line manufacturer serving the fire protection and firefighting industry,” explained Amerex Corporation president Bill Beyer. “We are excited to add the Solberg staff, its manufacturing operations, and firefighting foam research capabilities to our family.”
Solberg Scandinavian AS, based in Bergen, Norway, has been involved with the manufacture of firefighting foams since the 1980s. Solberg is recognized throughout Europe and the Asia Pacific Region for its environmentally sustainable fluorosurfactant and fluoropolymer-free products that are an innovation in Class B firefighting foam.(prweb.c0m)
