German concrete pump manufacturer, Putzmeister has announced its acquisition of truck mixer maker Intermix, in a move aimed at expanding the company’s presence in the concrete sector.
As the third-largest producer of truck mixers after Liebherr and SchwingStetter, privately-held Intermix produces up to 800 machines annually. Putzmeister, which is owned by China’s Sany Heavy Industries, develops, manufactures and sells equipment worldwide, in particular concrete pumps for construction, tunnel construction and large scale industrial projects.
