Alamo Group Inc. will acquire the majority of the assets and assume certain liabilities of Bush Hog, LLC. The purchase includes substantially all of the ongoing business of Bush Hog, including the Bush Hog brand name and all related product names and trademarks.
Ron Robinson, Alamo Group's President and Chief Executive Officer commented, "This is an exciting development for Alamo. Bush Hog is the leading manufacturer of agricultural mowing equipment in North America and has the most recognized name in the industry. This acquisition is very synergistic with our North American Agricultural Division and together we will be able to offer the market the broadest range of products in this sector of the industry."
Based in Selma, Alabama, Bush Hog principally sells its products across North America through a network of independent dealers and distributors. Their product line includes rotary cutters, finishing mowers, zero turn mowers, front-end loaders, backhoes, landscape equipment and a variety of other implements.
Duane Prentice, Bush Hog's President since September 2008, will remain in that capacity with the new Bush Hog subsidiary of Alamo Group following the completion of the transaction. Bush Hog will continue to manufacture at its Selma, Alabama facility, which is included in the acquisition.
