facilities.
In particular the increasing internationalisation of our
sales activities and the exclusive supply to Caterpillar of
compact excavators featuring up to three tonnes operating
weight have ensured that our order volumes continue to
grow”, explained Cem Peksaglam .
Range of products benefit from new
facilities
Track and mobile excavators of up to 14 tonnes, wheel and
crawler-mounted dumpers and skid steer loaders will be
manufactured at the new site. “With the new production
facilities, we will be able to strengthen and expand our
market position.
The optimised production processes and highly modern
production facilities will enable us to make further improvements to
the workmanship of our products and our production flexibility. This
will enable us to increase our competitiveness and ultimately our
market success”, says Cem Peksaglam.
Wacker Neuson has driven ahead with the sale of its compact
equipment, particularly outside Europe ever since the merger of Wacker
Construction Equipment AG and Neuson Kramer Baumaschinen AG in
2007.
We have achieved promising sales figures in North and South
America. However, we would also like to grow further in the Asian region,
which offers huge potential for our entire product range, particularly
the compact
equipment. Our appearance at Bauma China in November of this year in
Shanghai will show us how customers and retailers react to our products, both from the compact equipment and light
equipment ranges”, Cem Peksaglam informed his audience.
