Video: Contitech Is Strategically Realigning Conveyor Belt Business For Industrial Applications
“Our portfolio of conveyor belts for industry is growing steadily. Service and digitization also offer further potential for business. In addition, many of our customers are joining together to form ever larger units. In order to meet their changing wishes and needs, we also think and work in other dimensions,”explains Dr. Michael Hofmann from the Contitech Conveyor Belt Group, who took over the segment management, realigned the conveyor belt business.
Contitech thus combines its expertise from the industrial business and the know-how from the development of special conveyor belts. The clear aim of the new industrial division in the conveyor belt business is: to address customers even more specifically and directly. Contitech's main focus is on the raw material processing industry, power and cement plants, but also steel manufacturers and port operators, as well as the recycling and wood industries. The off-highway industry with products related to mobile harvesting and working machines forms a second important pillar.
Intelligent solutions, for example for belt and temperature monitoring as well as for planned and preventive maintenance, offer additional growth opportunities. In the future, new digital offers will expand the offer for customers and thus additionally support sales. With products such as connection kits for conveyor belts, service materials and accessories, Contitech focuses on looking after industrial customers on site. "We will combine our expertise in these areas even more closely," adds Hofmann, who with his segment represents around a third of the total sales of the Contitech conveyor belt business. (ud)
