Wintersteiger has acquired SRC, an Austrian developer of software for ski rentals that will be combined with its own Easyrent operation, making the company the biggest supplier of this sort of software in Austria. The company admits that the poor winter will have a negative impact on its sports division, but the fall will be lower than that of the overall market because only half of its business is in service machinery for the ski industry, and it will be more than offset by an increase in other divisions. The surface of the company’s assembly, warehousing and shipping facilities in Ried will increase by more than 30 percent this coming Fall by linking together two assembly halls previously separated by a street and by expanding and modernizing the local warehouse.
