Following a preliminary announcement and debut of the new products at World of Concrete 2019, Kinshofer, a global manufacturer of excavator and loader crane attachments, has officially announced the expansion of its product line to include hydraulic breaker excavator attachments following the acquisition of Hammer SRL, an Italy-based manufacturer of demolition, excavation, recycling and material handling attachments. Kinshofer chose the company because of its reputation for quality and more than 30 years of experience in the market.
The new line includes 22 breakers for carriers from .5 ton to 200 tons and joins an already expansive line of KINSHOFER tools.
“These breakers allow us to offer our customers access to a full range of attachments all in one place,” said Francois Martin, Kinshofer North America general manager. “Hammer will be a great addition to our group of companies, bringing with them high-quality attachments and a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.”
The breakers are made up of the KSB Series for carriers from .5 ton to 12 tons and the KFX Series for weights from 8 to 200 tons. Each line includes features to improve operator comfort, reduce wear and improve longevity. The acquisition also includes a variety of grapples, buckets and more. These will serve as an alternative to Kinshofer's premium attachment line for the price-restricted customer.
The Hammer management team will stay in its entirety and will continue manufacturing in Italy. The two companies will add additional staff to ensure a smooth launch of Hammer’s products and services worldwide through Kinshofer's global network.
Hammer attachments will retain branding in Europe but will be marked Kinshofer in North America.
