Hosokawa solids solutions repositions itself

- Turnkey solutions in bulk solids handling and powder technology

Following the takeover of the solids solutions Group by Hosokawa Alpine AG in January 2020, the Landsberg-based group of companies has repositioned itself: The previous companies system-technik GmbH and S.S.T. Schüttguttechnik Maschinenbau GmbH merged to form Hosokawa solids solutions GmbH and are now a permanent part of the Augsburg-based mechanical engineering company Hosokawa Alpine. This creates a new centre of competence in the field of mechanical process engineering that offers its customers complete solutions in bulk solids handling and powder technology.

Worldwide network of experts

Hosokawa solids solutions GmbH, which currently has three locations in Germany and Spain, has more than 50 years of experience in bulk materials handling. With the integration into the worldwide expert network of Hosokawa Alpine AG, it can expand its competences and has access to a strong sales network. "Through a joint market presence, we create sales synergies and are thus closer to the customer. In addition, we can now expand our expertise in complete solutions for bulk materials handling for our customers and also offer them the process steps of grinding, mixing and compacting. This strengthens our market position and attractiveness as an employer," says Manfred Wahl, Managing Director of Hosokawa solids solutions GmbH.

Solutions from a single source

Hosokawa Alpine AG is also more than satisfied with the integration of the Landsberg group of companies. Already today, it holds a leading position as a provider of solutions in the field of mechanical process engineering. These are used worldwide in many branches of industry, such as the chemical, pharmaceutical, food, recycling and mineral flour industries. This position will now be further expanded. "Through joint solutions, we offer our customers real added value: they receive a plant whose components are perfectly matched to each other and get complete service from a single source. This helps us decisively to further advance our growth course", says Dr. Antonio Fernández, CEO of Hosokawa Alpine AG. The first joint projects of Hosokawa solids solutions and Hosokawa Alpine are already being successfully implemented.
