Trelleborg acquires French industrial tire distributor

Through its Trelleborg Wheel Systems business area, Trelleborg has acquired the French company Cimap Roues Industrielles SAS, which is part of the family-owned CIMAP Group. Cimap Roues Industrielles, which holds a leading position in industrial tires in France, has been a distributor of Trelleborg’s industrial tires since 1999. The company has annual sales of approximately SEK 40 M and some ten employees at its head office in Paris and at a distribution center in Bordeaux. Trelleborg Wheel Systems thereby strengthens its position in the important after-market for industrial tires in France. Cimap Roues Industrielles will be fully integrated within Trelleborg Wheel Systems current industrial tire organization in France. Trelleborg Wheel Systems is a leading global supplier of tires and complete wheel systems for agricultural and forestry equipment, as well as for transport vehicles for materials handling, such as forklift trucks and other high-utilization materials-handling vehicles. The business area has sales of approximately SEK 3,000 M, with slightly above 1,900 employees.
