Husqvarna Construction Products has acquired the concrete power trowel business from Wacker Neuson Group, further strengthening its position in concrete floor finishing. The new Power trowels range will complement its current range, connecting the entire process from ground compaction to polished concrete floors. With the addition of the ride-on trowels, the company will now also have a complete offering for concrete surfacing and polishing. Husqvarna Construction Products can now also fully develop its recently launched Hipertrowel concept, optimising the machine, diamond tools and chemicals to lead in the growing application of polishing concrete floors using trowels.

During the fourth quarter of 2019, production will be relocated to Husqvarna’s Olathe, KS factory. At World of Concrete in February 2020, the company will launch a Husqvarna product range very similar to the appreciated and proven Wacker products and be ready to take shipments.
