This acquisition allows us to strengthen our relationship with this vibrant and progressive business. Terex’s continued success significantly relies on working in partnership with professional and customer focused Dealers. Molson have proved to be just that in the past and we look forward to growing with them in the future. We are particularly excited with the benefits that this acquisition will bring, both for our customers in England and Wales and for our business. Synergies within the existing Molson organisation will provide the depth required to consolidate the excellent growth experienced by the Finlay Group in recent years and will guarantee industry leading customer support across the entire country.”
Robin Powell, managing director of Molson Group, commented: “We are delighted to have acquired the Finlay Group and look forward to welcoming their experienced team into our Molson organisation.
