Germany/Austria: In a move that affects two major cement industry suppliers Loesche GmbH of Germany, the market leader in dry-grinding technology, and pyroprocessing specialist A TEC Holding GmbH of Austria have entered into a close cooperation agreement. The companies say that it is a mutually-beneficial move and both are convinced that they can jointly provide an even stronger and better support to clients in the cement industry. However, the core business of both companies will remain unchanged.
The companies said that the cooperation, combining technologies and sales organisation, opens new interesting opportunities for certain types of projects, for example combined upgrading projects including grinding circuits and pyroprocess optimisation. The cooperation also generates attractive synergies for both companies. They added that research and development and joint technology developments will provide new and innovative solutions to solve the issues of the cement production market in the future.
