A.S.F. Fischer takes over REX

From May 1, A.S.F. Fischer BV acquired the drilling brand REX from the firm Hemmink from Zwolle. This means that the entire brand, including its associated range, will be transferred.

REX has been the best choice for professionals for over 75 years in the field of high-quality drills, chisels and holesaws.

According to A.S.F. Fischer’s Director Arnoud Booij, the acquisition of the REX brand aligns perfectly with the company’s growth strategy. ‘’We aim to continue being a reliable, stable, and forward-thinking partner for our clients in the future. With the acquisition of the REX brand, we strengthen our position in the market and broaden our brand and product portfolio. Through the acquisition, customers of both companies will benefit from synergies in both logistics and commercial areas.

A.S.F. Fischer BV was founded in 1945 and is known for brands such as Woodies, Interdynamics, QlinQ, Steelies, Grabber, Fis-Profi and Perfectmate.

This is the second recent acquisition for A.S.F. Fisher BV, following the acquisition of Herag from Bolsward last January, which has now been completed.

It is expected that all logistics and commercial activities of REX will be integrated within A.S.F. Fisher BV at the beginning of May
