A takeout on the downswing. With new oil drilling currently depressed. Takeouts, consolidations, & mergers seem the best way to get through tough times. A leader in oil service. GE took the step awhile back. RE-

New buy today ANDE Andersons. IMO this recent Bunge/Glencore failed deal might once again stir up interest in a Glencore /Andersons deal.

Deere to Acquire Gigantic Construction Equipment Company

Deere & Company announced June 2 that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the Wirtgen Group, the world’s largest road construction equipment manufacturer.

Deere plans to buy the German-based company for EUR 4.357 billion in an all-cash transaction (about $5.2 billion based on current exchange rates). Wirtgen Group specializes in brands that span the entire road construction sector, including milling, processing, mixing, paving, compaction and rehabilitation. Wirtgen’s global footprint includes around 8,000 employees across more than 100 countries connected by a large network of company-owned and third party dealers.

“The acquisition of the Wirtgen Group aligns with our long-term strategy to expand in both of John Deere’s global growth businesses of agriculture and construction,” says Samuel R. Allen, Deere & Company Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Wirtgen’s superb reputation, strong customer relationships and demonstrated financial performance are attractive as we expand the reach of John Deere construction equipment to more customers, markets, and geographies.”

Max Guinn, President of Deere’s Worldwide Construction & Forestry Divison, says spending on road construction and transportation projects is less cyclical and has grown at a faster rate than the overall construction industry.

“There is recognition globally that infrastructure improvements must be a priority, and roads and highways are among the most critical in need of repair and replacement.

Deere’s board of directors approved the transaction, and the purchase is still subject to regulatory approval in several jurisdictions and must meet other customary closing conditions.

Atlas Copco’s sale of Road Construction Equipment leads to establishment of Dynapac SA



Published: 15 May 2017
The Atlas Copco Group has sold its global Road Construction Equipment Division, including the Dynapac brand name, to the number one construction Group in France and world-leader in road construction equipment, Fayat Group.

The Road Construction Equipment division became part of Atlas Copco‘s Construction Technique business area in 2007 and manufactures Compaction Rollers for asphalt and soil application, as well as asphalt equipment Planers and Pavers. The products are well known globally under the Dynapac trade name.

Founded in 1957, Fayat is a 100% independent family owned Group with an international scope in 120 countries and representation by 152 companies around the world. Fayat has earned a reputation for being a dedicated and reputable original equipment manufacturer through eleven road construction equipment companies and dedicated brands active in this area.

Dynapac will transfer to Fayat on 1 July 2017 and become a company within the Group operating under the Dynapac brand name. Following the acquisition, road construction equipment which forms one of the Group’s seven core businesses – public works, foundations, building, energy services, steel and mechanical construction and pressure vessels – will become the strongest division in the Fayat Group.

Middle East Africa will be one of eleven regional Dynapac business areas globally, with sales and service operations in 37 countries together with five global production facilities being Brazil, Sweden, Germany, India and China. The global holdings company will be based in Sweden and the divisional management head office in Germany. Dynapac has 1 265 employees with revenues of approximately MSEK 2 900 (MEUR 309) for 2016. Once all due diligences have been finalized, Dynapac SA will be a local legal company responsible for the Southern Africa territory within the MEA region and the head office based in Dubai.

“This is an ownership change and not a change in business structure,” says Neville Marthinussen, Atlas Copco Construction Technique Business Line Manager, Dynapac Road Construction Equipment. “Until closure, the Road Construction Equipment Division will remain part of Atlas Copco’s Construction Technique Business Area. So it is business as usual,” Marthinussen assures customers. “As Dynapac South Africa we will continue to serve the market with our products and services. The current product portfolio remains unchanged and all scheduled product renewals will continue as planned.” Marthinussen confirms that the Atlas Copco name will gradually be phased out to end 2017 and the Dynapac brand will be prominently displayed on all products come 2018.

Fayat has plans to further strengthen its strategic position in road construction and road maintenance equipment. “The Group’s reputation as a world-leader in road construction equipment with over 60 years’ experience, presents a solid platform on which we are able to reinforce the strength of the Dynapac brand through continued development, improvement and expansion of our Dynapac product ranges and services that have clearly earned the respect and trust of our customers over many years,” concludes Marthinussen.
