FAUN takes over vehicle manufacturer ValMétal from France

The French company ValMétal, including Val’Air, has been part of the FAUN Group since the beginning of the year. With the takeover, FAUN is adding more sweepers and electric chassis to its product portfolio and is strengthening its presence in France. In addition to road sweepers, in body sizes from five to 15 cubic meters and various special options, the manufacturer’s repertoire also includes battery-electric 3.5 t chassis for the assembly of universal bodies with a payload of two tons. The range is rounded off by special municipal vehicles, spare parts and a comprehensive after-sales service. But ValMétal not only made a name for itself as a vehicle manufacturer, but is also known for metal processing. The export share of vehicle production is 60% and customers come mainly from Scandinavia and Switzerland. “I am very pleased that with ValMétal we can welcome another French company to our group. I thank Jacques Daval for his trust. Together we will produce first-class sweepers and environmentally friendly electric vehicles,” says Patrick Hermanspann, CEO of the FAUN Group. Thorsten Baumeister, COO of the FAUN Group: “With the integration of the Val’Air products, I see great synergy effects in terms of the development of new vehicles and battery-electric drives.”
