Ariens FYI

Recommended Posts

Ariens Co., a Brillion manufacturer of lawn and garden equipment, has acquired a British maker of riding lawn mowers. The British firm, Countax Ltd., has 130 employees in Oxfordshire and sells products in the United Kingdom, Germany, France and the Netherlands. Ariens has more than 1,200 employees, with operations in Wisconsin, Nebraska, Indiana, Alabama and Australia. Terms of the acquisition were not made public by either of the privately held companies. Countax will give Ariens a European base of operations, said company President Dan Ariens in a news release. "We are committed to reinvigorating Countax and see opportunity for growth," Ariens said. Harry Handkammer, Countax managing director, said: "There is a strong synergy between the Countax and Ariens business, as both are privately owned and enjoy common markets in landscaping and ground care."
