Kinshofer has acquired Hammer SRL, an Italy-based manufacturer of demolition breakers, adding a line of 22 hammers for carriers from 0.5 to 200 tons.
The KSB Series are designed for excavators in the 0.5-to-12-ton range, and the KFX Series for excavators from 8 to 200 tons. Each line includes features to improve operator comfort, reduce wear, and improve longevity, the company says.
“These breakers allow us to offer our customers access to a full range of attachments all in one place,” Francois Martin, Kinshofer GM, said in a press release. “Hammer will be a great addition to our group of companies, bringing with them high-quality attachments and a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.”
The Hammer management team will remain, and manufacturing will stay in Italy. The two companies will add additional staff to ensure a smooth launch of Hammer’s products and services through Kinshofer’s global network. Hammer attachments will retain branding in Europe, but will be marketed as Kinshofer in North America.
