Stressing the great synergy between both businesses, Howard said the deal was the culmination of five years of talks. There is currently a portfolio of 140 complementary products sold in the same sports marketplace that will be promoted through a dealer network.
Howard added: "A new market for us that we feel has great growth potential is maintenance equipment for artificial sports surfaces.Schools and universities in the UK and countries such as Poland appreciate they can get more play hours out of this type of surface."
The company is undergoing a period of review and is assessing the whole operation. It plans to increase its overseas market base in the USA, Arab nations, Japan, Malaysia, Russia and throughout Europe.
"Informed decisions will be made on all aspects of our operations, including factory performance and spare parts supplies," added Howard. The business expects to launch developments of existing products within the SISIS range at IoG Saltex in September.
