“We’re happy to welcome AS-Motor into the AriensCo family of brands,” said Dan Ariens, Chairman & CEO of AriensCo. “The values of AS-Motor align closely with the AriensCo core values to be honest, be fair, keep our commitments, respect the individual and encourage intellectual curiosity. This acquisition allows for the expansion of both companies’ reach across Europe.”
