Headquartered in Buhlertann, southern Germany, AS-Motor products are sold through 300 dealers in Germany, over 100 dealers in France and distributors throughout the rest of Europe and the world.
Dan Ariens, Chairman & CEO of AriensCo, says, “The values of AS-Motor align closely with the AriensCo core values to be honest, be fair, keep our commitments, respect the individual and encourage intellectual curiosity. This acquisition allows for the expansion of both company’s reach across Europe.”
AriensCo has locations in the United Kingdom and Scandinavia with an 112,000 sq. ft. manufacturing and distribution facility, over 150 employees, over 750 dealers across the U.K., Norway, Denmark and Sweden.
