Vehicle Service Group Buys Ravaglioli to Expand Into Tire Service Equipment

Vehicle Service Group (VSG) has acquired the Ravaglioli S.p.A. Group, which will allow the Illinois company to expand into wheel and tire service equipment.

Ravaglioli is based in Bologna, Italy, and manufactures lifts, wheel service equipment, and diagnostic equipment for cars, trucks, commercial vehicles, and motorbikes.

Niclas Ytterdahl, president of VSG says, “We are delighted to welcome the Ravaglioli team to VSG. Ravaglioli’s leading products and history of innovation will allow us to significantly expand our capabilities, reach and product portfolio.”

Matt Webster, vice president and general manager for VSG The Americas, says, “VSG is a 90-year-old company that has the world’s most recognized brands for best-in-class vehicle repair equipment. The addition of Ravaglioli to the VSG portfolio provides a very natural and logical extension to our product offerings.

VSG says it will announce plans for its new expanded product portfolio in the coming weeks. VSG is part of Dover Corp.’s Engineered Systems segment, and the company includes nine major vehicle lifting and collision repair brands: Rotary Lift, Chief, Forward, Direct-Lift, Hanmecson, Revolution, Elektron, Blitz and Nogra.
