The terms of the deal have not been announced; the sale is expected to close in early December.

Our goal is to expand our knowledge, expertise, capacity and global footprint so that we can provide the best possible support to customers in these areas of our business.”

Following the close of the transaction, Schöttli’s headquarters in Diessenhofen, as well as other facilities in San Dimas, Calif., and Suzhou, China, will become part of Husky’s global network of locations.

“By joining with Husky we are partnering with a like-minded industry leader to continue providing leading-edge technology, with the advantage of Husky’s extensive sales and service network to better support our global customer base,” said Thomas Anderegg, president and CEO of Schöttli.
