According to Dr. Ing. Heribert Breuer, managing director, allmineral, the Schmidt, Kranz Group’s interest is a further expression of the company’s consistent, internationally-oriented market strategy. “The international market for ore and coal processing, which is our core business, has grown considerably over the last years,” Breuer said. “Now that an established company with a strong global presence like Schmidt, Kranz Group has joined us, we will be able to offer our clients even more qualified expertise and to enter into new markets.”

The Schmidt, Kranz Group has various subsidiaries around the world and manufactures and sells crushers, mining vehicles, tunnel boring machines and high pressure hydraulics as well as other products. The acquisition was made possible by the previous shareholders, Klösters und Ackermans, who transferred their shares to the Velbert-based company.

With a strong interest in India, the companies aim toward taking joint action in the near future. allmineral Asia wants to greatly expand its activities there with those of Hazemag India. Since 2009, allmineral Asia Pvt. Ltd. is responsible for marketing, project management and service for allmineral’s complete solutions in the field of mineral processing in India and Southeast Asia. Hazemag India Pvt. Ltd. is part of Hazemag & EPR GmbH, another subsidiary of the Schmidt, Kranz Group.
