“Techno Days 2014” – Ammann’s in-house exhibition
The Ammann Group opened its doors from June 24-29, 2014 and invited guests from far and wide to visit the first Ammann exhibition under the name “Techno Days 2014 – Innovation & Emotion”.
The globally active company presented its extensive range of products and services in the fields of asphalt and concrete mixing plant, compaction machinery and pavers to international customers on a specifically designed exhibition site of 10 000 m2 at the company’s headquarters in Langenthal, Switzerland.
Ammann welcomed more than 600 visitors from all over the world to the Techno Days exhibition. Following a welcome by Ammann Group CEO Hans-Christian Schneider, who has managed the family-owned business since 2013, customers had an opportunity to view and experience numerous Ammann products in action on the exhibition grounds.
A complete Ammann Elba concrete mixing plant was set up for the exhibition alongside an asphalt mixing plant from the UniBatch range and a road-mobile EasyBatch 90 erected on two trailers. Individual components such as an RAH50 dryer drum, an Amix mixer and the latest generation of burners were also on display in addition to the complete systems. The plant portfolio was rounded off with a presentation of an Ammann bitumen modification plant, the as1 system control plant control software and its versatile components, and comprehensive information on all other Ammann plant types such as the Universal HRT for the highest proportions of reclaimed asphalt.
Ammann made use of the exhibition to present its comprehensive range of machines. Numerous Ammann compaction machines from rammers and vibratory plates to medium and heavy-weight rollers were on display during live demonstrations. The latest generations of Rammax trench rollers put their performance and maneuvrability to the test, whilst the climbing abilities of the latest single drum rollers were demonstrated on an incline. Visitors had an opportunity to experience the new cab concept as well as the various designs and applications of the intelligent compaction measurement and control system, ACE, on a number of machines.
A presentation of the Ammann range of pavers rounded off the machine display segment. Each product presentation culminated in a live installation sequence involving various rollers working alongside the Ammann pavers. A comprehensive range of customer services is the basis for all of Ammann’s product-related activities. Customers were able to gain first-hand information on Ammann’s proprietary products such as Amdurit wear protection, Ammatex filter bags, spare parts supply, hotline services, training events and service/maintenance options.
The customer events were rounded off with guided tours through the production halls at the Ammann Group’s headquarters and evening parties. The highlight in each case was a night-time machine show with live music, acrobatics and dance performances, and a firework display.
The annual Dealer Meeting organized by the Business Area Machines also took place during the Techno Days exhibition. More than 100 Ammann dealers from all over the world followed the invitation to attend the event in Langenthal. Intensive product training sessions, presentations and comprehensive workshops brought dealers up to date with the advantages and performance specifications of Ammann’s products. The dealership representatives were actively encouraged to link theory with practical experience by operating the machines themselves.
Ammann’s managers did not forget to think of their employees as well as their customers and dealers during the in-house exhibition week. The gates to the Techno Days were opened to welcome employees, their families and others at the weekend. A varied support program with a fun park, the Swiss excavator and wheel loader operator championships and various shows and performances underscored the strong bond between the Swiss family-owned business and its employees.
