Global supplier of truss, staging and rigging equipment Eurotruss has acquired US structural systems manufacturer Total Structures, becoming the sole owner of the Ventura-based company.
The deal is hoped to allow Total Structures “to offer a greater product range and use the knowledge, expertise and scale in continuing to be a leading brand and partner in the US market”. The US company’s new management will be led by former Tomcat employees Scott Johnson as CEO and Bill Berrier as CFO.
Martin Kuyper, founder of Eurotruss, comments: “This acquisition strengthens our product portfolio and supply chain, being the first truss brand providing nationwide coverage from our two factories in Ventura, CA and Knoxville, TN.
“We will honour, respect and continue the products, values and business of Total Structures while integrating the Eurotruss brand and its products under the Total Structures flag in the US market.”
Scott Johnson adds: “We plan on continuing to build on the legacy of Ian Coles and Peter Johns, previous owners of Total Structures. I am excited and honoured to lead Total Structures with our amazing team in both Ventura and Knoxville, to be the number one brand and to be the best solutions partner for our customers. We will grow the business while not compromising the unique values and support which are the pillar of Total Structures.”
Total Structures was founded in 1992 and has approximately 30 employees. Over the last 25 years, the company has developed many new innovative products as the Omni Connector, the Light Lock, and the Pointman Hoist line.
