Kinshofer acquires Trevi Benne - Construction & Demolition Recycling

May 11, 2022

Kinshofer acquires Trevi Benne The company says the acquisition strengthens its portfolio of demolition tools and adds additional product segments to its offering. Kinshofer GmbH, a manufacturer of attachments for truck cranes and excavators based in Holzkirchen, Germany, has acquired a majority share of Trevi Benne S.p.A., a developer of demolition and scrap processing tools for excavators based in Noventa Vicentina, Italy. “Kinshofer continues its strategy to provide the industry with a ‘One-Stop-Shop’ solution of outstandingly engineered products to increase efficiency and, more importantly, profitability for its customers,” says Thomas Friedrich, president and CEO of Kinshofer . “The acquisition of Trevi Benne was the next step in our approach to be a global industry leader with a solid local presence.”    Kinshofer says the acquisition of Trevi Benne is significant for three reasons:   it strengthens Kinshofer’s portfolio of demolition tools;    it adds additional product segments to Kinshofer’s offering; and,   it improves Kinshofer’s distribution channels in markets Trevi Benne has a strong presence. Additionally, Kinshofer says it has further enhanced local manufacturing in Italy with its Noventa Vicentina-based vertically integrated manufacturing facilities. Kinshofer says customers will be served quicker and with a wider product range. Trevi Benne’ s industry success is based on Luca Vaccaro, co-owner and CEO of Trevi Benne, and his team’s 30 years of knowledge. With a committed and experienced workforce, Trevi Benne will continue to develop and sell its products globally. In order to meet the current market requirements, Trevi Benne and Kinshofer will recruit more staff to ensure a swift and professional market launch of the companies’ products within either sales organization. Vaccaro will remain co-owner and CEO of Trevi Benne. “The concentration of knowledge and competence, particularly in the demolition sector, will form a powerful center for future developments customers can only benefit from,” Vaccaro says. “The combination of both product ranges will create more ground-breaking innovations for the industry. The whole Trevi Benne team, which will stay on in its entirety, is very excited to be part of this mutual future.”    Kinshofer’s and Trevi Benne´s employees are working on rapid integration to provide customers worldwide with their comprehensive range of products and services. Photo provided by Hendrickson Hendrickson's new product suite focuses on EV market The transportation equipment manufacturer has launched several products it says offer increased weight savings and ride quality. Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems, a Woodridge, Illinois-based transportation equipment manufacturer specializing in lightweight axle and suspension technology, has announced a suite of new products focused on what it calls a rapidly growing electric vehicle (EV) market. The company’s Softek front steer axle and suspension system, which features Hendrickson’s Steertek front steer axle and integrated with the front mechanical spring suspension and lightweight clamp group, has been scaled to accommodate the medium-duty last-mile delivery market, while still providing weight savings and ride quality. Hendrickson also has incorporated its snake spring technology into the rear suspension system for this platform which it says delivers additional weight savings and optimized ride and stability characteristics. “ Hendrickson has a long history of supplying lightweight suspension products to the heavy-duty transportation industry and today expanded that offering to support the burgeoning medium-duty electric vehicle segment” says Jason Shiffler, business unit director at Hendrickson. He adds, “Innovative solutions like Softek and snake spring technology deliver not only critical weight savings but also provide excellent ride and handling for the Class 4 and 5 medium-duty delivery van market allowing vehicle manufacturers and fleets alike to maximize capacity in other areas of the vehicle.” In addition, Hendrickson has made other advancements in the medium-duty market with mechanical suspension components like its Liteflex hybrid composite and steel spring, which it says offers weight savings up to 240 pounds compared with a steel multileaf spring mechanical suspension. For the heavy-duty market, Hendrickson is offering its Optimaax lightweight forward liftable tandem axle and suspension system for 6x2 vehicles which it says delivers weight savings and helps optimize a vehicle’s energy consumption through its automated liftable technology. Hendrickson says its new product innovations show its commitment to support the EV space, where lightweight products are needed. The company manufactures and supplies medium- and heavy-duty mechanical, elastomeric and air suspensions, integrated and nonintegrated axle and brakes systems, tire pressure control systems, auxiliary lift axle systems, parabolic and multileaf springs, stabilizers, bumpers and components to the global commercial transportation industry. United States Secretary of Commerce Gina M. Raimondo has announced the U.S. will temporarily be suspending Section 232 tariffs on Ukrainian steel, initially for one year. “Ukraine’s steel industry is uniquely important to the country’s economic strength , employing one in 13 Ukrainians with good-paying jobs,” the department says. “Steelworkers are among the world’s most resilient—whether they live in Youngstown or Mariupol,” Raimondo says. “We can’t just admire the fortitude and spirit of the Ukrainian people—we need to have their backs and support one of the most important industries to Ukraine’s economic well-being. For steel mills to continue as an economic lifeline for the people of Ukraine, they must be able to export their steel. Today’s announcement is a signal to the Ukrainian people that we are committed to helping them thrive in the face of Putin’s aggression, and that their work will create a stronger Ukraine, both today and in the future." The department says some of Ukraine’s largest steel communities have been among those hardest hit by the Russian invasion, and the steel mill in Mariupol has become “a lasting symbol of Ukraine’s determination to resist Russia’s aggression.” The department says despite nearby fighting, some Ukrainian mills have started producing again. The department says that creating export opportunities for steel mills “is essential to their ability to continue employing their workers and maintaining one of Ukraine’s most important industries.” Raimondo adds, “I want to thank President [Joe] Biden for his leadership in directing us to do all we can to support Ukraine’s people and their economy, as well as the Ukrainian leaders I have had a chance to work with over the past two months. Ukraine’s diplomatic leaders have been essential partners and advocates for their people, and we will continue to do all we can to support their work toward peace, freedom and prosperity.” Bats are an integral part of baseball, but usually not the type roosting at one vacant baseball stadium in Louisiana. Estimates being made to take down a baseball stadium in Shreveport, Louisiana, include up to $200,000 to evict roosting bats that call the ballpark home in a way that complies with state wildlife protection law. An AP News article in early May says the state’s nuisance animal regulations spell out that bats must be relocated rather than killed, as long as such a process can be undertaken “without endangering people.” The same story says Shreveport City Council is estimating it will cost about $580,000 to demolish Fair Grounds Field in that city. The ballpark was built in 1986 and was home to a minor-league baseball team that moved to Texas in 2003. AP says Fair Grounds Field was last used in 2011, and the Shreveport City Council is considering an ordinance to declare it surplus and allow demolition. If it happens, more than one-third of the total cost, about $200,000, will be tied to the bat eviction process. The project’s timeline also may be affected by the presence of the bats, with AP and local media outlets reporting that the initial bat control measures at the ballpark cannot start at until August, so as not to interfere with the animals’ mating season. AP News quotes a Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries official as saying of the bat consideration and budgeting, “Somebody is telling them the right thing to do. I’m happy to hear that.” The news agency also refers to a state wildlife department brochure that states, “It is estimated that insectivorous bats save U.S. agriculture over $3.7 billion dollars annually in pest control.” Shreveport City Council, in a draft ordinance seeking the stadium’s demolition, refers to it as “a large concrete structure that became obsolete very quickly and did not fit the new boom in baseball stadium design.” Investors who have considered renovating it “have either reported that the work would be too expensive or just never scheduled a follow-up meeting,” Council says.
