Even from the earliest days of founder Karl Schlecht, Putzmeister built its reputation on understanding the needs of its customers and providing the very best products to meet the most demanding concrete pumping applications.
To this day, Putzmeister continues to stand by this heritage of technology, customization and durability. As the industry has evolved, the company has found that not all applications require the same level of technology or product solution to perform the job. In fact, one job in a metropolitan market can have a more demanding profile than the same job in a rural market.
This less demanding profile can lead equipment owners to select a less expensive and less complex piece of equipment.
“As financial pressures increase, fleet owners (large and small) are searching for methods to be more competitive in their markets.” said Jonathan Dawley, president and CEO at Putzmeister America. “In doing so, buyers are increasingly scrutinizing upfront purchase pricing of each machine and the support they will receive from the manufacturer.”
“Putzmeister’s desire is to remain an industry leader in North and Latin America and has recognized the need to adapt to and meet these changing market demands,” Dawley continued. “Whether a customer is seeking the best value in concrete pumps or the most technologically advanced pump, they can now have either need met under one umbrella.” Starting February 2020, Putzmeister is collaborating with parent company, Sany Heavy Industries, to launch a new class-leading line of concrete pumps available in 38-, 49-, 56- and 66-meter models. “This new line of products is designed around simplicity, cost effectiveness and reliability. Company research shows that this balanced blend of functionality and price will strike a meaningful chord with a large part of the Americas market,” said Dawley. “The entire Putzmeister/Sany team is working hard to ensure that all support services are in place prior to launch. Uptime is paramount in the concrete pumping world and the team will be prepared to support this requirement.”
