As of early April, the Wacker Corp. is named Wacker Neuson Corp. The name change was entered in the Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions. Wacker Neuson Corporation, Menomonee Falls, Wis., is an affiliate company of Wacker Construction Equipment, AG, Munich Germany. This move aligns with plans to change the name and legal form of the parent company in June 2008, when it will become Wacker Neuson SE.

"Under our new name of Wacker Neuson Corp., we will continue to support our customers' processes with top-quality products and service they experienced under Wacker Corp." declares Christopher Barnard, president and CEO of Wacker Neuson Corp. The merger of two profitable, quality leaders in 2007 further strengthens Wacker Neuson Corp.'s position as a reliable partner for high-quality construction equipment. Alongside tried-and-tested products in the light equipment segment, the company's portfolio also includes compact equipment such as track excavators, compact wheel loaders, and dumpers.

"We are well aware that, alongside product innovations, trust, stability, and consistency are vital to good customer relations," underlines Barnard. He explains that the company has therefore provided the sales and service organizations within Wacker Neuson Corp. with intensive training in its high-quality compact equipment. According to Barnard, customers can therefore rest assured that they will continue to receive the best possible advice and support from their Wacker Neuson contacts in the future as they were accustomed to receive under Wacker Corp.
