As of October 17th 2022, Ruthmann Holdings GmbH will take over the exclusive distribution and maintenance of France Elévateur products in Germany, Austria and Switzerland (German and Italian-speaking areas) with its sales force and service center network. This means that all current orders and contracts in these countries are taken over by Ruthmann.
The company has already been distributing Versalift products in Germany, Austria and Switzerland for over 10 years. Since June 2022, the brands France Elévateur and Movex have been part of the TIME Manufacturing Company (“TIME”), just like Versalift and Ruthmann. This acquisition therefore enables the development of partnerships between the group’s brands.
“Ruthmann is synonymous with quality and reliability, and we are delighted to have our subsidiary join the company’s maintenance centers We are also confident that we will work together with Ruthmann to develop our sales in Germany and strengthen our presence in the country “, said Charles GOFFIN, Director of France Elévateur.
Uwe Strotmann, Managing Director of Ruthmann Holdings GmbH adds:This is the next step in business development and shows the strength we share together in the Time Manufacturing group. We are proud to distribute France Elévateur products in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and are pleased to be able to serve our customers even better with the new service location in Leipzig.”.”
