2006-2013: New potential

The WIRTGEN GROUP paves the way for new growth

The WIRTGEN GROUP entered the market of materials processing in order to open up additional future potential in fields other than road construction. Two lines of business were created: “Road Technologies” and “Mineral Technologies”.

New business line Mineral Technologies

Building of the second line of business began in 2006 with the successful incorporation of KLEEMANN GmbH, a renowned German manufacturer of mobile and stationary processing plants. Successively integrating KLEEMANN into the global sales and service network of the WIRTGEN GROUP, and building a new main production plant in Göppingen, enabled the WIRTGEN GROUP, by 2010, to strengthen the “Mineral Technologies” line of business, putting it on a sound footing for the future.

In 2006, the WIRTGEN GROUP achieved the ultimate breakthrough in opencast mining when an Australian company was the first to use surface miners as the principal mining technology for mining iron ore. WIRTGEN GmbH launched the 4200 SM to expand its range of products for large-scale opencast mining.

The WIRTGEN GROUP is geared to eco-friendly technical advancement

With its technical innovations, the WIRTGEN GROUP not only optimizes its range of products, but also follows the call for eco-friendly technologies.
