Global cement and minerals processing leader FLSmidth has partnered with Wirtgen Group company Kleemann for the supply of cone crushers for mobile applications in the construction industry. Kleemann is the global technology leader within the road and construction machinery segment.
The long-term cooperation agreement between the two industry majors leverages FLSmidth’s technology leadership in cone crushers and Kleemann’s lead position in mobile crushing in the construction and aggregate industry.
Group Executive Vice President of the Minerals Division in FLSmidth Manfred Schaffer described the alliance as a part of FLSmidth’s strategy to develop technology in partnership with leading peers. With FLSmidth being the main provider of productivity within the minerals and cement segment, and Kleemann having a strong foothold in the construction industry, it presented a unique opportunity for FLSmidth to expand into adjacent markets, he added.
