The industrial and technology group ThyssenKrupp is strengthening its plant technology capabilities in France by merging the formerly separate entities Polysius and KH Mineral to become ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions (France). The step comes into effect as of 01.10.2015. As of today, TKIS (France) employs around 300 employees at two locations in Aix-en-Provence and Sarreguemines.
By combining the French operations, ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions is strengthening its position in the areas of plant engineering, procurement and construction for clients in the region across the cement, minerals, bulk materials handling and processing, and mining industries. The turnkey contract experience of the former Polysius will be a major asset for TKIS (France) which will be extended to the management of important mining and quarry projects, while the experience of the former KH Mineral contributes expertise in the management of short-term projects and in reinforcing the single machine business.
