Vekoma takes over Bussink range
31 December, 2008

The Giant Wheels marketed by Ronald Bussink as “Wheels of Excellence” have been acquired by Vekoma Rides Manufacturing, which will handle them under a new division called Dutch Wheels BV. Bussink, meanwhile, will now concentrate on the supply of Ferris Wheels 100-metres and taller via the new company Bussink Landmarks.

This Vekoma acquisition includes the models R40, R50, R60 (pictured) and the new R80, which are considered a great addition to the portfolio of rollercoasters and attractions already offered by the Dutch supplier. The wheels will be manufactured using the same proven suppliers in order to maintain the high quality that customers have become accustomed to. Each client will have its own personal project manager and customer support contact.
