Lintec expands manufacturing capacity to meet market demand
German asphalt and concrete plant constructor Lintec is rapidly expanding its manufacturing base around the world to meet growing demand for its modular material production equipment from both well established and emerging markets.
The company’s new facility in Poland has recently supplied its first CDD 1200 GA Gussasphalt plant to French company SMAC, part of the Colas Group. However, the company is also enjoying strong demand from facilities in Brazil, Shanghai and Singapore.
Lintec will open a new factory in Pune, India by the end of this year to meet demand from Indian contractors.
“In the past we have not concentrated so much on Europe but on emerging markets,” said managing director Carsten Weiss. “But we have had constant growth in Europe over the last four years.”
Lintec’s modular concept, which builds the plant inside easily transportable containers, appeals to both short-term contracts and longer projects.
The completed plant doesn’t require foundations and assembly is rapid, allowing movement between job sites if required. “We call it a project plant, neither mobile or static,” said Lintec sales director Jan Czojor.
