Wirtgen Group hosts Mineral Technology Days in Germany

By |  September 21, 2015


The Wirtgen Group hosted 2,300 customers, dealers and media at its Mineral Technology Days 2015 event in Wittlich, Germany. It was the company’s eighth annual get together, and participants came from more than 100 countries.

Highlights included demonstrations of crushing and screening plants from Kleemann, as well as products from other Wirtgen business units, including asphalt plants and surface miners.

Attendees were given an in-depth look behind the scenes during tours of the company’s Benninghoven plants in Mülheim and Wittlich.

wirtgen1wThe Mobicone MCO 9 EVO was the centerpiece of the Kleemann exhibits. This track-mounted mobile cone crusher fills one of the last remaining gaps in the Kleemann range of models. Like the other Kleemann crushers in the EVO series, the MCO 9 is designed for user-friendly operation and easy transport, in addition to optimum interlinking options.

A live demonstration showed how the MCO 9 EVO, used in conjunction with the Mobicat MC 110 EVO jaw crusher and mobile triple-deck screening unit, the MS 16 D, form a productive setup for processing natural stone.

Brothers Jürgen and Stefan Wirtgen, managing partners of the Wirtgen Group, held a press conference at the event, detailing their company’s growth. They announced that Kleemann will be greatly increasing factory and warehouse space, as well as doubling its office space. In 2016/2017, Wirtgen will be investing €150 million in its Mineral Technologies business unit.

Having welcomed Benninghoven into the fold, the Wirtgen Group now offers a complete range of solutions in its Mineral Technologies business sector for the extraction of mineral deposits, the processing of natural and recycled materials, and the production of asphalt.
