Husqvarna Construction announces plans to further consolidate brands in the surface preparation segment. Over the coming years, the recently acquired Blastrac and Diamatic products, services, and solutions will be re-branded as Husqvarna and integrated into the global Husqvarna offering.

In January 2021, Husqvarna completed the acquisition of Blastrac, a leading provider of surface preparation equipment and solutions for the global construction and remediation industry.

In turn, Blastrac customers and partners will gain access to adjacent products such as compactors, concrete placement equipment, sawing & drilling equipment and demolition robots as well as a wide (digital) service offering.

“We really look forward to giving our customers access to the best and broadest surface preparation range in the industry – paired with what is probably the most competent and passionate team and all of this under one strong brand. We will build on the combined surface preparation portfolio and will further invest in innovation leadership over the years to come to make sure our customers can always count on us to complete their work in the most productive, sustainable and safe manner,” says Stijn Verherstraeten.

The first wave of re-branded Blastrac and Diamatic products will be launched mid-2022 and will further shape and complement the Husqvarna offering for floor grinding, scarifying and scraping. The second wave targeting spring 2023 will include shot-blasting solutions and associated dust extractors.
