HUSQVARNA AND HTC: COMBINING THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

Husqvarna Construction today announces that the HTC products, services and solutions are now fully integrated into the global Husqvarna Construction offering to the surface preparation industry. The introduction of the rebranded range, promoted under the tagline “The Orange Evolution”, is enhanced with the launch of brand new products.

By combining two existing eco systems, the floor grinding customers will have a much wider choice of products, features and solutions at hand – all under one roof and one brand.

“We are thrilled to introduce the most comprehensive product range on this growing market for surface preparation. With this powerful combination we open up a whole new world of options for our customers,” says Stijn Verherstraeten, Vice President Concrete Surfaces & Floors.

To further build on the strong heritage from HTC, Husqvarna Construction launches a series of product innovations, including:

• a new family of high-performing polishing tools

• a tool holder “Multi” allowing to fit both Redi Lock® and EZchange™ tools • a new portfolio of edge grinding tools for hand-held grinders

• a new range of chemicals for the creation and maintenance of polished concrete floors

• an enhanced process of the Superfloor™ method to polish concrete floors.

“We are committed to developing the floor grinding industry, we strongly believe in the benefits of polished concrete floors and we want to help our customers win interesting flooring projects as well as complete their work in the most productive, sustainable and safe manner,” said Stijn Verherstraeten.
