AUMUND Fördertechnik

Know-how of Besta & Meyer, Louise and WTW ­under one roof

Effective 01.05.2014, Aumund Förder­technik assumed the spare parts services of the Maschinenfabrik Besta & Meyer in Saarland/Germany. In this way, Aumund follows several strategic goals simulta­neously: pooling the know-how of the companies Besta & Meyer, Louise and WTW, a focussed expansion of their own After Sales Service and inspection services branded Aumund PREMAS® as well as the strengthening of the market position as premium provider within the new machine business for trough chain conveyors and silo and hopper discharge systems.

Already during the early 1990s ­Aumund became a talking point, when the company acquired the Maschinenfabrik Louise, Cologne/Germany. In 2006 WTW Engineering followed – both companies in possession of engineering, patents, production and sales structures for hopper discharge systems and trough chain conveyors.

By acquiring Besta & Meyer, presently Aumund reinforces its technology leadership in system solutions and its product range anew. Simultaneously it expands the company’s sales- and service activities with the raw and bulk material industry internationally. The acquisition of the wear and spare parts service of Besta & Meyer is again linked to the acquisition of patents, engineering drawings, spare parts lists and machine files with the detailed machine history. Therefore, the continued support of the Besta & Meyer client base is secured.

For clients and users working with machines by Besta & Meyer, ­Louise and WTW, now united under the roof of ­Aumund Fördertechnik GmbH, the advantages are obvious. In addition to the After Sales Service and the wear and spare parts service, Aumund offers its inspection services branded PREMAS®. The expert staff like inspectors and s­upervisors perform machine inspections and on site trainings. This way ­Aumund Fördertechnik boosts its all-round service package to the highest possible standard for the clients’ benefit.

With technological, innovative products and system solutions Aumund has a maximum of know-how at its disposal. Production and distribution sites located in Germany, Europe, the Americas, India and Asia are supplemented by spare parts warehouses in Germany, USA and Hong Kong as well as offices worldwide.

Aumund belongs prominently to the leading companies “Best of German ­Engineering” in the world market.
