Manitou Group has agreed to buy the assets of its South African dealer Dezzo Equipment.

The investment will enable the group to sustain its activities and strengthen its service to customers in the region. The deal will be finalized in the third quarter of 2024, following approval by the South African merger control authorities.

Darren Hall, Vice President Middle East Africa and Managing Director of Manitou Southern Africa, said, “Dezzo Equipment has a huge expertise, with many technicians and a perfect knowledge of our products and services. We are proud to integrate the staff into Manitou Group.

“This operation will enable us to maintain and strengthen our products and services offer to our customers in these two areas.”
