“This move will help us expand our presence in the restoration and abatement market,” explained Fredrik Akermark, Vice President of Ermator USA. 

Pullman-Holt is a major manufacturer and distributor of commercial floor-care equipment, including HEPA vacuums, wet/dry vacuums, squeegee vacuums, upright vacuums, backpack vacuums, floor machines, burnishers, carpet extractors and automatic scrubbers.
