UK-based Terberg DTS (UK) Ltd, a global supplier of specialist vehicles and support, has acquired CAT 9 Ltd, also from the UK. CAT 9 is known in both the civilian and military sectors for the support of specialist airfield and industrial fire fighting vehicles.
With an annual turnover of £30 million (US$45.4m), Terberg DTS plans to develop its specialist fire and rescue sector with the acquisition. It plans to enhance the CAT 9 services through new vehicle sales, hire, leasing, scheduled and VHF omnidirectional radio range (VOR) service support, as well as accident damage repairs. The Fire and Rescue Division will primarily operate from Terberg DTS’ West Yorkshire head office, with additional support from satellite depots in Worcester and Gloucester.
