Astec reveals plans for Hillhead 2024

Astec Industries has announced it will double its footprint at Hillhead 2024 later this month.

Astec will bring its comprehensive product range to the showcase event where it will engage with new and existing customers about its offering and plans for global growth.  

In recent times, Astec has streamlined its operations, prioritized customer focus, and laid the foundations for its significant international growth plan. This restructuring has enabled Astec to position itself as a key partner in the materials solutions, construction, and infrastructure sectors by leveraging over a century of proven designs, an impressive portfolio of application experience, and thousands of installations across the globe.  

“Keeping our customer central to our business remains a priority. We are one of the few OEMs that has an established global footprint to support sales, installation, service and parts from our strategically positioned bases. We have manufacturing bases and regional offices in North America, Latin America, Canada, Africa, India, and Ireland, with additional regional offices in the Middle East, Asia, China, and Australia, to help serve customers locally,” Astec Europe managing director Damian Power said. 

“We are currently recruiting additional Astec channel partners across our business lines globally to help represent us. Hillhead will provide a great opportunity for everyone to meet the team, hear about our investment, and discuss the strategic expansion of one of the most notable names in the industry.”  

Astec’s demonstration will showcase all parts of its business including crushing, screening, washing and classifying, material handling, asphalt, concrete, road construction, forestry and environmental recycling, and digital solutions. 

The company’s Hillhead plans follow the expansion of its European manufacturing facility in Omagh, Northern Ireland. The multi-million-dollar expansion increased its production capacity and is a cornerstone of the company’s international growth plans. 

“Hillhead allows us to showcase the very best of Astec – the breadth and depth of our equipment, our product and application experience, our commitment to developing innovative solutions that offer real and tangible benefits to the customer, and our solid and reliable designs,” Astec group vice president of sales Ron Earl said. 

“The customer is at the centre of everything we do, and we understand the importance of local supply and local support backed by global strength. 

“We plan to double our footprint at the show this year, including showcasing our washing equipment. We are particularly excited to show off our latest fines-recovery plant and rinser screen from the Astec washing solutions division. Astec have a rich history of producing washing and classifying equipment, dating back to the 1960s with Kolberg. 

“We will also have a range of units from our mobile and modular crushing and screening divisions aimed to satisfy the needs of customers from small contractors to blue-chip companies. We will display a number of tracked mounted and modular jaws, impactors, and cone crushers, as well as scalpers and finishing screens.” 

“In the demonstration area we will be showcasing the FT4250 mobile impact crusher. This is a flagship unit that is well known for its reliability, work rate, and ease-of-use.”
