“We are delighted that E&P is joining the DexKo family. E&P is known for its high-quality products and strong customer focus and enjoys a very high reputation in our industry, which makes it an ideal fit within DexKo,” says Fred Bentley, CEO of DexKo Global. “We continue to see opportunities to improve our product offering and service levels through the type of value-added acquisitions that we have recently announced.”

The acquisition will bundle all competencies in leveling systems and DexKo will sell its core products through Reisemobil-Service Fischer in Elsdorf when its expanded into the Customer Service Center West.
E&P’s three owners, Eric Klinkenberg, Pierre Blom, and Kay Fischer, will retain their positions as part of a management team and the E&P brand will also be continued in its existing form as a product brand under the DexKo Global umbrella brand.
Founded in 2015 through the combination of Dexter and AL-KO Vehicle Technology, DexKo Global employs more than 4,5000 people at 39 manufacturing facilities and 25 distribution centers worldwide.
