The current situation of construction equipment was brought to the agenda during the visit organized by Turkey Construction Equipment Distributors & Manufacturers Association (IMDER) to the production facilities of Hidromek and Betonstar, the member companies in İzmir.
In the organization where the production facility is visited with the host, Betonstar Founding Partner and Chairman of the Board Oğuz Diken announced that in 2019, the annual export figure increased 2.5 times and broke the record for the last 12 years. Stating that a total of 200 people participated and achieved this success, Diken said, “We have the capacity to produce 144 truck-mounted concrete pumps per year. We also have the space and equipment to increase this capacity when necessary. We are the first company in the world to design and manufacture a concrete pump with a casting height of 40 meters that can be mounted on 6*4 trucks. We are also the first company in the world to produce an 8*4 truck-mounted concrete pump with a casting height of 47 meters in accordance with highways regulations. The fact that Betonstar started to fill this gap, especially in the last few years, when Europe needed a new brand for concrete pumps, gave us an important task. In the last six years, we have added totally newly designed 13 models of truck-mounted and three fixed type concrete pumps to the product range.”
