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, and a new National Building Envelope team has been established comprising seven Hilti Account Managers.
The company’s ventilated façade support systems enable the straightforward construction of all types of contemporary rainscreen facades.
Gareth Prosser, Hilti Steel & 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 ever before.”
