Delivering Performance
Putzmeister India recently rolled out the 5,000th stationary concrete pump from its factory in Verna, Goa. Established in 2007, Putzmeister offers customers in India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Sri Lanka and Maldives concreting, shortcreting, mortar and industrial solutions. In a little over 10 years, the company has established itself as the leader in the concrete pump category.

Putzmeister stationary concrete pumps are world renowned for their vertical and horizontal pumping capability. These pumps have not only set, but also broken their own world records on a regular basis.

When concrete is pumped upwards, many tonnes of weight build up in the pipelines. With every kilogram, the pressure on the connections between the pump and the line increases. Back in the 1960s and 1970s, 180 m was the vertical pumping limit.

Putzmeister worked through these years to find a solution and break past the challenges. In 1976, Putzmeister's automatic sealing ring solved the problem: the higher the pressure in the delivery line, the better the right seals it. In addition, the ring ensured watertight pipes, so that concrete could continue to flow smoothly even at heights of several hundred metres. Now an industry standard, the automatic sealing ring continues to be developed by Putzmeister to help its customers scale new heights.

Putzmeister's concrete pumps are known for their reliability, robustness, ease of operation and maintenance, and long service life. The pumps are manufactured with fewer components as compared to other OEMs. This results in lower costs when service is required.
