Aiming to expand its concrete supply chain offering and customer base beyond the pumping industry segment, Putzmeister America has announced production of rear discharge mixers at its Wisconsin headquarters operation. Set for official unveiling at World of Concrete 2013, February 5–8 in Las Vegas, the mixers will fit specific, localized market needs throughout North, Central and South America—product engineers targeting payload capacity, drum assembly durability, and job site performance.

“The inclusion of ready mix trucks in our equipment portfolio is a natural extension,” says Putzmeister America CEO Dave Adams. “We already provide customers with technologically-advanced concrete pumps, and we’re confident our new trucks will deliver one more solution to their job site challenges.”  —  Putzmeister America, 262/886-3200; [email protected]
