Farid European Group purchases Heil Europe
Published: 01 March, 2013
Farid European Group, a supplier of RCV and Tanker producers, has purchased the Heil Europe Business of Environmental Solutions Group. The company is aiming to further solidify its position in Europe through this acquisition, by Farid European Group's subsidiary Farid UK. The company has also announced that it will increase the product range and strengthen the service offered to customers.
Over recent years its carefully managed expansion in the UK and Europe has seen a huge rise in usage of Farid waste management equipment - Farid RCVs and Moro tankers.
Farid has restructured its business operations in the UK and appointed where needed new management. It is now focused on providing the right mix of vehicles suited to customer need and providing after-sales service to complement the high quality of products offered. Heil Europe manufactures a complete line of premium-quality refuse collection vehicles, universal lifts, and replacement parts for the European market at its plant in Hillend, Scotland. Product lines comprise the European HalfPack, BigBite, TwinTrack, Powerlink, and Powertrak. The sale includes Heil's 9,000 square-metre manufacturing facility in Hillend, Scotland, rights to the use of the Heil brand for four years, and the use of intellectual property on the aforementioned products.
In addition to an extended product range, customers will also have access to a much larger after sales service team dedicated to waste management vehicle products. Heil and Farid will be combining the strengths of both organisations to deliver customer service to both the UK and Europe.
Farid will continue to operate at both of its main UK sites, with manufacturing and assembly remaining in Hillend, Scotland. Farid's base at Arundel West Sussex will also remain providing the company with much improved UK coverage.
