Brookfield, Wis.-based material handling firm Wolter Group LLC has acquired Indianapolis-based material handling company Kensar Equipment Co., the companies said Tuesday.

Kensar sells used material handling equipment nationwide and offers new equipment, used equipment, parts, rentals, and service to manufacturing, warehouse, and distribution centers throughout Indiana. The deal expands Wolter Group's footprint in the Midwest and marks its entrance into the Indiana marketplace; it also strengthens the firm's used and wholesale equipment distribution business, company leaders said.

Wolter Group is a family-owned and operated group of companies consisting of Wisconsin Lift Truck, Illinois Material Handling, Ellis Systems, Wolter Power Systems, and Fleet Services.
