GHH says it is to establish a new service base for its customers in the heart of the German potash and salt mining industry.
The Gelsenkirchen-based mining and tunneling equipment manufacturer took over the business activities of BAT Bohr- und Anlagentechnik GmbH in the village of Krayenberggemeinde on October 1. Through its subsidiary, GSE Europe GmbH, GHH took over the fixed assets of BAT, which will soon be renamed and continued at the site as BAT Bergbau Service GmbH. The company currently has 25 employees.
With this step, GHH wants to provide its German customers with comprehensive services quickly and reliably, it said. This mainly involves repair work, the construction of spare parts and parts logistics. GHH is also considering making the site the centre for its special-purpose machinery manufacturing operations.
“This will not only expand our range of services, but also continue a traditional location in this mining region, which is so important for Germany,” Dr Jan Petzold, CEO of the GHH Group, said.
