Astec Industries is preparing to showcase some of its comprehensive product range at the upcoming Hillhead 2024 exhibition. Following a significant investment in its European factory in Omagh, N. Ireland, the company aims to engage with both new and existing customers and partners at this renowned quarrying event, helping highlight its commitment to global growth and showcasing Astec’s industry-recognised technology to its global audience.

With some of the most recognised industry brands, Astec has streamlined its operations, prioritised customer focus and laid the foundations for its significant international growth plan. This restructuring has enabled Astec to position itself as a key partner in the materials solutions, construction and infrastructure sectors by leveraging over a century of proven designs, an impressive portfolio of application experience and thousands of installations across the globe.

MD of Astec Europe, Damian Power, explains, “We are excited to showcase Astec Industries to the global audience at Hillhead. Astec has one of the widest range of products in the marketplace and we are renowned for patented technologies. Astec brands have designed and manufactured products for over a century. Crushing, screening and washing names like Telsmith (established in 1906), Kolberg (established in 1965) and Pioneer (established in 1928) have built our industry and are arguably the foundation upon which much of today’s industry-accepted technologies are based upon.”

Power continues, saying, “Astec has a history that few in the industry can match, and we are excited to showcase our proven and trusted designs that make Astec a credible choice in comparison to many of our European competitors. Astec has invested heavily in our facility in Omagh and are now in a position to design, produce and support our manufactured products, using the very best of their century-old heritage.

“The fact that we have thousands of global installs in the field, ensures that we are coming from a place of experience and have a bank of application expertise that supports us globally. Our products are well-respected within the industry and are built to withstand the demands of the sectors in which we operate. Keeping our customer central to our business remains a priority. We are one of the few OEMs that has an established global footprint to support sales, install, service and parts from our strategically positioned bases.

“We have manufacturing bases and regional offices in North America, Latin America, Canada, Africa, India and Ireland with additional regional offices in the Middle East, Asia, China and Australia to help serve customers locally. We are currently recruiting additional Astec channel partners across our business lines globally to help represent us. Hillhead will provide a great opportunity for everyone to meet the team, hear about our investment and discuss the strategic expansion of one of the most notable names in the industry.”

Ron Earl, Group VP, Sales with Astec elaborates, “We will have representation from all parts of the Astec business at Hillhead, including crushing and screening, washing and classifying, material handling, asphalt, concrete, road construction, forestry and environmental recycling and digital solutions. Hillhead allows us to showcase the very best of Astec – the breadth and depth of our equipment, our product and application experience, our commitment to developing innovative solutions that offer real and tangible benefits to the customer and our solid and reliable designs. The customer is at the centre of everything we do and we understand the importance of local supply and local support backed by global strength.”

Earl continues, “We plan to double our footprint at the show this year including showcasing our washing equipment. We are particularly excited to show off our latest fines recovery plant and rinser screen from the Astec washing solutions division. Astec has a rich history of producing washing and classifying equipment, dating back to the 1960s with Kolberg.”

“We will also have a range of units from our mobile and modular crushing and screening divisions aimed to satisfy the needs of customers from small contractors to blue chip companies. We will display a number of tracked mounted and modular jaws, impactors and cone crushers as well as scalpers and finishing screens.

“In the demonstration area we will be showcasing the FT4250 mobile impact crusher. This is a flagship unit that is well-known for its reliability, work rate and ease-of-use.”
