Camso Inc. has acquired Omni Industrial Tire, an independent industrial tire distributor with four locations in Texas.
Camso says the purchase help it grow its material handling distribution and tire service footprint in southern Texas.
Omni Industrial is presently the second largest tire specialist in Texas, with four locations and a well-established reputation, according to Camso.
“The acquisition of Omni Industrial Tire will enable Camso to further penetrate the Texas market and consolidate its leadership position in this region,” says Bob Bulger, vice president and general manager – Solideal On-Site Service. “Omni has a strong and respected name in Texas, and shares our unique view of providing OTR mobility solutions.”
Omni Industrial Tire has locations in San Antonio, Laredo, Corpus Christi and McAllen.
Bulger says the material handling equipment market in Texas represents a great opportunity for Camso for tire distribution and also for its independent service division, Solideal-On-Site Service. “Omni joins our service organization and will help us continue to deliver the highest level of commitment in industrial tire service.”
He says Omni’s experience will contribute to Camso’s overall growth in this market by building upon its already strong tire distribution and service offering and, ultimately, by enhancing the overall customer experience.
