Youngman Lines Removed From The United Kingdom Market
In 2014 it was announced that Werner Access Products UK Holding Lrd had reached an agreement to purchase all shares of the Youngman Group. This agreement meant that Werner Co could continue to grow and develop on their strong market share in the ladders and access industry.
The Werner Co. Chairman, William T Allen stated that “The Youngman and BoSS brands are well recognized tower and trade access product brands in the United Kingdom and fit well with Werner’s existing UK ladder business. We’re confident that the deal will benefit the industry by allowing us to offer a single integrated portfolio that combines our complementary strengths “
After nearly 8 years of development and growth, the time has come for Youngman and Werner to officially merge and reduce their product range offerings, more information on these changes can be found below.
