The CONCRETE Times • MAY 2015 BATCHING PLANT FEATURE SCHWING STETTER ADDS BATCH PLANTS THE UK subsidiary of leading German manufacturer, aNNOUNCES THAT THEY ARE ADDING concrete batching plants to EXTEND THEIR UK product range. 14 The company we know today began as two separate companies in Germany, Schwing and Stetter. Stetter began in a blacksmith’s workshop in Memmingen, Germany, in 1945, specialising in concrete mixing equipment, then launching the era of ready-mix concrete in 1957, with the first commercial truck mixer. They followed this in 1960 by starting to provide ‘concrete filling stations’ for their truck mixers which developed into the prototypes of the large-scale concrete mixing plants, that we see all over the world today. Founded by Friedrich Wilhelm Schwing in 1934, as a manufacturer of equipment for the concrete industry, Schwing GmbH focused on the development and manufacture of concrete machinery with it’s famous pumps first appearing on the market in the 1950’s. The two companies came together on the 8th March 1982 when Schwing took over Stetter resulting in a company able to supply a wide range of concrete handling equipment and 15 years later, Schwing Stetter (UK), a wholly owned subsidiary of the German Schwing Stetter group, was created in 2007, following the purchase of London’s Burlington Engineers by Schwing Stetter in 2007. There is a comprehensive range of Stetter Batching Plants, all with fully galvanised aggregate bins and weatherproofed to stand up to Britain’s challenging conditions. There are four different series of Concrete Plants in the Stetter Range: • The CP ‘compact’ or precast range producing up to 30m3 per hour. • The M ‘mobile’ or on-site series producing from 60 up to 114 m3 per hour. These are designed to be dismantled and setup in around a week. These range from the M1 with a pan mixer producing up to 56 m3 per hour right up to the M2.5 delivering up to 114 m3 per hour. • The H and HN ‘Horizontal’, part of the static series ranging from the HN1.5 with an output capacity of 80 m3 per hour right up to the H6 which can supply 360 m3 per hour when twinned. And… • ...the V ‘Vertical’ series also part of the static series and producing 140 m3 per hour from the V-AK plant up to 360 m3 per hour from the V-AG plant when twinned.
