Sany as its secondary brand for mobile concrete pumps
Since the end of last year, preparations for launching Sany truck-mounted concrete pumps as Putzmeister’s secondary brand in Europe have been underway. The launch scheduled for the beginning of this year was postponed to early summer due to the coronavirus pandemic. Because of the global travel warnings in spring, training courses for our sales team and information sessions for prospective customers were conducted entirely via webinars for the first time. The first units have now been sold in Great Britain and Cyprus.
Putzmeister PCP offers configured truck-mounted concrete pumps from the 20m to the 60m class for customers who have previously purchased low-priced machines from Italy or Korea, for example. The Sany truck-mounted concrete pumps, which are delivered to the Aichtal site as X-units (assembled, but without a chassis), are mounted on VOLVO chassis, tested and made ready for shipment in Aichtal.
Compared to customisable Putzmeister truck-mounted concrete pumps covering the premium market with various options to choose from, Sany truck-mounted concrete pumps are only available as fully configured machines in one colour and with VOLVO chassis.
Sales and aftersales service for the machines as well as the supply of spare and wear parts will be handled by long-standing Putzmeister dealers MMB in Belgium and Alltech in Poland, and by the subsidiaries PMIB and PMUK in Spain and Great Britain.
To support the launch, the website www.Sanyconcretemachinery.com has been set up, where descriptions for the truck-mounted concrete pumps are available in German, English, Spanish and French. Along with this website, Putzmeister is also using social media channels such as Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn. From mid-August, training courses for the service staff at Putzmeister and Putzmeister dealers are provided to familiarise staff with maintenance and repair of the Sany truck-mounted concrete pumps. Decentralised information sessions in the individual countries are scheduled to take place from September.
