Astec to Showcase at Hillhead 2022 in Buxton, U.K.

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., May 23, 2022 - Astec Industries is bolstering its established international presence by showcasing its mobile crushing and screening range at the forthcoming Hillhead exhibition. Having recently consolidated the company’s legacy brands under the Astec banner, (including Kolberg-Pioneer, Osborn Engineering, Telsmith, Johnson Crushers International and Astec Mobile Screens), Astec will use the renowned quarrying exhibition to connect with customers and partners alike - new and old. With one of the most comprehensive product offerings in the marketplace, ranging across the crushing and screening (mobile, portable and static), material handling, washing and classifying, rock breaker technology, and asphalt and concrete sectors, Astec is excited about growing its market presence globally.

Astec has taken its sixteen industry-celebrated brands such as KPI-JCI, Astec Mobile Screens, Osborn, BTI and Telsmith in the crushing, screening and aggregate processing markets and Carlson, Roadtec, Rexcon, Con-E-Co and BMH in the concrete and asphalt sectors and recently assimilated the product range under the Astec brand name. This restructured framework guided the company to simplify its business, focus on their customers and grow as a connected partner in the industry while leveraging the strength of a century of proven design. With the brands consolidated under the one name, Astec’s focus is to be a partner the industries that build the infrastructure that physically connect the world. It’s this commitment that has driven their decision to unify as one company under the Built To Connect framework.

Group VP, Sales & Marketing for Astec, Ron Earl, comments, “We are excited to embark on the next phase of our development journey. Astec has a great story to tell and our decades of experience in the industry make us a credible alternative to many of our competitors. Astec Industries is soon to celebrate its 50-year anniversary, but some of that success needs to be attributed to companies that exceed that mark. Our no-nonsense products are well-established within the industry and are built to withstand the demands of the sectors that we operate. Keeping our customer at the center of our business remains a core focus. We are one of the few OEMs that has an established global footprint to support sales, install, service and parts from our strategically positioned bases. We have manufacturing bases and regional offices in North America, Latin America, Canada, Africa and Ireland with additional regional offices in the Middle East, Asia, China and Australia to help serve customers locally. We are currently recruiting additional dealers 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 has invested time and money into their European facility to help support its customers and distribution network globally in all aspects of sales, service, support and spare parts. The streamlining of the company’s internal structure and operations has been a huge factor in improving efficiency and driving growth. Additionally, further investment into a dedicated ESG focus, not only in terms of developing their zero emission technologies, but also ensuring that Astec fulfils its obligation as a good corporate citizen, implements relevant sustainability initiatives as well as sound corporate governance.

Stephen Whyte, Group VP, Product Management with Astec elaborates, “Hillhead brings a welcome opportunity for all of us to get back out and see equipment in operation at an exhibition, and I encourage you to come view the solutions we have to offer. We are fortunate to have such a strong product portfolio and, as a company, we are invested in leveraging our product and application experience to continue developing innovative and sustainable technology. Connected equipment will help reduce operating costs and ultimately make the lives of our dealers and customers easier. Local parts availability and product support are vital alongside a product focus on performance, telematics, industrial styling, and drive towards zero emissions, as we work to grow our global market share. We are looking forward to displaying some of these innovations to everyone at Hillhead and helping them discover the full breadth of our product range.”
