Alo UK Ltd
is a subsidiary company of Alo AB. Alo UK Ltd. was established in 1999, having purchased the business of Lawrence Edwards Ltd, who had been importing the Quicke range of front loaders since 1967.
In 2002 the UK business of Trima Ltd was also incorporated into Alo UK ltd, thus combining the two product brands through one wholly owned Importer. The Trima range of front loader had previously been imported into the UK since the early 70´s.
Alo now enjoys a market leading position in the UK and continues to go from Strength to Strength.
