Hermann Schäfer GmbH & Co. KG is a medium-sized construction company with a long tradition. Founded in 1911, Schäfer today employs around 120 people. For some time, the company in Weilmünster in the German Taunus region has been running an asphalt mixing plant that forms the backbone for roadworks within a radius of around 100 km.
The partnership with Benninghoven started in 1974 with a Retrofit project in the form of a Benninghoven burner for the asphalt mixing plant run by the company at the time. This was followed by an investment in a Benninghoven asphalt mixing plant of type TBA 3000, which is still producing asphalt for the company's installation crews and for sale to third parties. The Schäfer installation crews install 80 % of the produced asphalt using Vögele road pavers. The machine fleet also includes cold milling machines from Wirtgen, which are used in resurfacing projects and generate recycling material.
