Komatsu Europe is pleased to announce that in February 2022 Kuhn Holding, a Komatsu distributor with its headquarters located in Salzburg, Austria, took over the Romanian company Marcom which was founded in 1992. Located in Bucharest, Marcom currently employs 70 people and generated sales of €41M in the last financial year. Its primary focus on the sale of Komatsu construction machinery makes it a perfect fit into the Kuhn family’s business profile.
Kuhn’s growth continues
Kuhn Holding is an Austrian family company that is divided into the three strategic areas of construction machinery, loading technology and the production of machine tools (Emco). Kuhn's construction machinery division has been exclusively and successfully selling Komatsu construction machinery for decades in Austria, southern Germany, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland and Croatia. “We are pleased about this further expansion of our company. With Marcom, we have taken over a successful company that will drive our healthy growth even further. In addition, the expansion in Romania is an important step in internationalisation,” says Andreas and Stefan Kuhn.
Through the addition of Marcom to Kuhn Holding, which previously employed 1,600 persons, the group has grown by another 70 employees.
