Swedish road safety solutions supplier ATA has announced the strategic acquisition of FMK Trafikprodukter here at Intertraffic. ATA, a subsidiary of the UK based infrastructure group Hill & Smith
Holdings, has bought FMK as the latest move in its growth strategy for the Nordic region.
FMK manufactures noise reduction screens, bridge parapets and other safety barriers, including what is claimed to be a unique tubular guard rail system.
“We look forward to working as a part of ATA. Both companies have a tradition of developing innovative solutions to protect the travelling public. Together we can further increase the pace of development of an expanded portfolio of products,” said FMK managing director Fredrik Andersson.
FMK is a highly reputable business, known for its cost-effective products, short delivery times and good levels of service, said ATA managing director Thomas Wuopio. The FMK business, including the company’s own product development and manufacturing facility, is now to be fully integrated with the ATA Sweden operation.
“This is a very important acquisition for us, marking the latest stage in our continuing strategy of strengthening our position in the Nordic market,” Wuopio said.
