IHE CELEBRATES 60 YEARS OF PUTZMEISTER
Putzmeister represented in Oman by International Heavy Equipment (IHE), recently celebrated its 60th anniversary since it was founded in 1958. Founded by Karl Schlecht in 1958, Putzmeister stands today as a global market leaders in the concrete sector.
Commenting on the renowned global brand, Ram Mohan, General Manager of IHE said, “At IHE we aim to provide highest standards or service and state-of-the-art technology to guarantee customer satisfaction. The key to the latter is our extensive portfolio of products from some of the most globally renowned industrial brands. One of these brands we have been associated for the past 13 years is Putzmeister. In 2018, with 60 years of technical expertise now behind it, the company boasts a finely graduated range of products that is unmatched in the fields of concrete, mortar, tunnel, and industrial technology.”
With the development of a practical mortar pump (1958), the first continuous mixing pump for gypsum plaster (1965) and a compressed airbased screed conveyor (1965), Karl Schlecht, the founder of Putzmeister, revolutionised the industry in both interior and exterior construction work. These technical milestones made heavy physical work on construction sites not only considerably easier but also more streamlined. Since the acquisition of the ‘Brinkmann’ brand in 2008 and relocation to the Aichtal branch in 2012, the company’s market presence is now stronger than ever.
“Founded by a mechanical engineering student in his father’s garage 60 years ago, Putzmeister’s history proves that hard work and constantly striving to be a leader in innovation are all it takes to grow a small idea into one of the leading manufacturers globally; which is something we at IHE also consistently strive for,” Ram said.
