Elektron joins Vehicle Service Group (VSG) family

The Vehicle Service Group, a world leader in the field of vehicle lifts and collision repair equipment has acquired the assets of Elektron Bremen GmbH.

The acquisition adds three product fields: welding equipment, plasma cutters and battery service equipment to VSG, a subsidiary of BlitzRotary GMBH.

Elektron Bremen is a leader in the premium sector for welding/plasma/battery service equipment. Approvals from all major vehicle manufacturers underline the cutting edge reputation when it comes to technology and quality.

“The Elektron acquisition enables us to offer collision repair shops a ‘total repair solution,’” explains Carsten Rohde, Managing Director of BlitzRotary GmbH. “We can now supply equipment to diagnose and identify collision damage, repair the damage through pulling the frame, replacing parts or welding, and document that the vehicle was returned to the original manufacturer’s specifications. Elektron is an important strategic component as we continue building our global collision business.”
