DICA acquires SlatTrax product line
By Hannah Sundermeyer10 November 2022
DICA has completed the acquisition of SlatTrax, a ground protection and temporary access road product for a variety of markets, including general construction, utilities, public works departments, grounds care and hardscape contractors.
SlatTrax is an engineered ground protection solution that can be deployed mechanically or manually.
“This acquisition is a natural expansion of the DICA brand, said Kris Koberg, CEO, DICA. “SlatTrax provides temporary worksite access, minimizes damage to lawns and gives crews a stable work surface. Durable and easy to handle, SlatTrax is a unique solution for companies that are working with light and medium duty equipment in a wide variety of industries.”
DICA acquired SlatTrax from Gary Ringus who was the founder and owner of the company. DICA has assumed all ongoing operations for the SlatTrax brand, and Ringus remains involved, working as a consultant and a manufacturer’s representative during the transition.
“SlatTrax is not a mat—it’s a temporary roadway made up of 12.5 and 25-foot sections,” said Kevin Koberg, director of marketing, DICA.
The roadway can be deployed from a spool attachment on a skid steer or manually moved into place by one or two people using built-in straps. SlatTrax is made of ¾-inch recycled plastic slats which are connected with spine and capture joints that enables articulation (rolling) and arcing (curving) of the roadway.
