Husqvarna has subsumed the Blastrac and Diamatic surface preparation ranges, and both will then be marketed under the Husqvarna brand.

The news follows the January 2021 acquisition of Blastrac, and furthers the company's wider ambitions in the floor preparation sector.

“We have now built one strong team with the commitment to deliver the best possible experience to our broad range of customers. With our combined expertise and our wider offering we are ready to serve our customers and shape the surface preparation industry for tomorrow,” explains Stijn Verherstraeten, vice president Concrete Surfaces & Floors at Husqvarna Construction.

“We really look forward to giving our customers access to the best and broadest surface preparation range in the industry – paired with what is probably the most competent and passionate team and all of this under one strong brand. We will build on the combined surface preparation portfolio and will further invest in innovation leadership over the years to come to make sure our customers can always count on us to complete their work in the most productive, sustainable and safe manner."

The first wave of rebranded Blastrac and Diamatic products will be launched in mid-2022 and will further shape and complement the Husqvarna offering for floor grinding, scarifying and scraping. The second wave is targeted to launch in spring 2023 and will include shot-blasting solutions and associated dust extractors.
