We are pleased to have completed the acquisition of HTL Group in the quarter, which is the UK’s leading provider of controlled bolting products. This transaction expands our portfolio of bolting products as well as our global rental offering. In addition, our efforts around new product development have continued to be effective as we achieved greater than 10 percent of sales from new products for a second consecutive quarter. As recently announced, Jeff Schmaling will be moving into his new role as chief operating officer and will continue to drive these growth initiatives,” said Randy Baker, Enerpac Tool Group’s president and CEO.
