- Company & Industry News
Weir Minerals has secured a two-year contract to supply and service three heavy-duty slurry pumps to Meichle und Mohr — a sand, gravel and concrete producer based in Immenstaad, southern Germany.
Meichle und Mohr operates in numerous locations in the region between the north shore of Lake Constance and the Black Forest, extracting sand and gravel and producing ready-mix concrete and other related products.
The units — all from Weir Minerals’ Warman slurry pumps range — will drive wet processing and transportation of gravel.
The win is the first agreement with a German business secured since the launch in September of a new service centre in Essen, providing customers in Germany with a permanent servicing and supply base to enhance service and after-sales support.
Mr. Hansbert Hellstern, technical plant Manager at Meichel und Mohr said: “We selected Weir Minerals based on the proven track record Warman pumps have for product lifespan and ease of maintenance.
“The launch of the new service centre in Essen also gave us complete confidence in the availability of spare parts and maintenance support.”
Marcus Hessling, service manager at Weir Minerals’ Essen service centre said: “Meichle und Mohr is a well-known supplier within the German construction industry and this win adds a strong name to our portfolio of Germany-based customers.
“We are continuing to expand our business rapidly in the aggregates production market within the region, and the recent opening of the permanent service base is playing a key role in this.”
Meichle und Mohr supplies aggregates, ready-mix concrete and a range of products including paving stones, slotted channels and concrete pipes to the construction sector across southern Germany.
The business was established in 1924 when two family-owned firms merged. Today it is managed by a fourth generation of both families and the company now employs more than 300 people.
