Vehicle and machinery fleet

We offer a modern, state-of-the-art machinery fleet with various attachment tools, exhaust filters, propulsion technology and protective ventilation, including:


  • several crushing and screening plants, air classifiers as well as sink-float-plants
  • demolition equipment for an operating weight of 30 tonnes upwards
  • long front demolition excavators up to 30 meters vertical reach
  • several wheel loaders, handling excavators, compact and small machines
  • various earthmoving plants

We undertake the transports almost completely ourselves. Some heavy load trains, various hook lift platforms as well as several flatbed semi-trailers ensure flexibility and reliability. Moreover, our vehicle fleet contains a variety of vehicles for bulk materials, container and waste transportation.

In case of any malfunction that might occur despite our very young fleet age, in-house machine fitters and our network of internationally acting service partners guarantee a minimum of downtime.


Responsibility and honesty mark the cornerstones of our corporate culture. In all our business units, we orientate our actions towards the legal standards and ethical moral principles. Our corporate compliance guidelines provide the basis for our actions; the business management as well as all our employees are committed to those principles. The extensive code of conduct defines all relevant topics. Our code of conduct creates trust and fosters a sense of responsibility.
