Benninghoven is a successful manufacturer of hot-mix asphalt plants steeped in tradition (Fig.).

Due to the integration of Benninghoven, the Wirtgen Group is now able to offer their customers complete solutions with technologically leading brands one-stop, i.e. all process steps from crushing of rock via the mixing of asphalt up to the placing, compacting and repairing of carriageways of all kinds.

With 55 of its own sales and service companies and more than 150 dealers the worldwide network of the Wirtgen Group will make it possible for Benninghoven to get access to other markets step by step. The focus will be on quick and competent service and application support.
