Astec Industries are preparing to showcase some of their comprehensive product range at the upcoming Hillhead 2024 exhibition. Following a significant investment in their European factory in Omagh, Northern Ireland, Astec aim to engage with both new and existing customers and partners at this renowned quarrying event, helping to highlight their commitment to global growth and showcasing the company’s industry-recognized technology to a global audience.

With some of the most recognized industry brands, Astec have streamlined their operations, prioritized customer focus, and laid the foundations for their significant international growth plan. This restructuring has enabled Astec to position themselves 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.

Damian Power, managing director of Astec Europe, explained: ‘We are excited to showcase Astec Industries to the global audience at Hillhead. Astec have one of the widest range of products in the marketplace and we are renowned for patented technologies. Astec brands have designed and manufactured products for over a century. Crushing, screening, and washing names like Telsmith (established in 1906), Kolberg (established in 1965), and Pioneer (established in 1928) have built our industry and are arguably the foundation upon which much of today’s industry-accepted technologies are based upon.

‘Astec have a history that few in the industry can match, and we are excited to showcase our proven and trusted designs that make Astec a credible choice in comparison with many of our European competitors. We have invested heavily in our facility in Omagh and are now in a position to design, produce, and support our manufactured products, using the very best of our century-old heritage.

‘The fact that we have thousands of global installations in the field, ensures that we are coming from a place of experience and have a bank of application expertise that supports us globally. Our products are well respected within the industry and are built to withstand the demands of the sectors in which we operate.

‘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. 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.’

Ron Earl, group vice-president of sales with Astec, elaborated: ‘We will have representation from all parts of the Astec business at Hillhead, including crushing and screening, washing and classifying, material handling, asphalt, concrete, road construction, forestry and environmental recycling, and digital solutions. 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. 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.’

Astec look forward to sharing more with everyone who attends the exhibition and are seeking interest from potential partners who share the same commitment to quality, customer focus, and innovation. Astec welcome any questions or expressions of representation interest, in advance, by emailing:
