In recent decades, we have grown strongly through the acquisition of other companies. Our offering today includes municipal vehicles from Bucher Schörling, winter maintenance equipment from Giletta, Gmeiner and Assaloni, and refuse collection vehicles from MacDonald Johnston in Australia.
Together, the five brands stand for an outstanding market position in Europe and Australia, a rich fund of know-how based on many years of experience and a portfolio of top-quality products and services. We aim to express this even more clearly in future through a joint market presence under the Bucher Municipal brand.
The new brand underlines our affiliation to Bucher Industries, a group whose origins date back to 1807. It also highlights the success of our long-term industrial commitment in the area of municipal vehicles and winter maintenance equipment.
