PFREUNDT Distributors Meeting in Italy

In late March, international sales partners and PFREUNDT sales representatives met in Rovereto, Italy.

27 representatives and employees accepted the invitation from Ma-estro, a company in which PFREUNDT holds a financial interest, and travelled to Italy. There were two very interesting items on the agenda: The European première of the WK60-XS and a presentation of products and solutions from Ma-estro.

Following its world première at Conexpo in Las Vegas, the WK60-XS is now receiving its European première in Italy. Introduction of XS now rounds out the WK60 series, and there is the perfect model for meeting each customer requirement. The WK60-XS is small, compact, and features an extensive package of standard features that allow for data management, data sharing, additional linked devices, and much more. There are also a wide variety of additional features for specialised requirements and operating processes, which are available as an option depending on the customer’s needs. At the moment, the WK60-XS is available for wheel loaders, telescopic handlers, and forklifts. “It’s just the right product for us. In Hungary, we don’t have a calibration law like in Germany, so the ability of the scale to be calibrated is unimportant to us. The WK60-XS is very attractively priced and easy to install, but of course meets the high standard of quality for which PFREUNDT is known,” explains Adam Varga from the Hungarian firm Taurus. “But it can also be used very well in Germany, and it’s extremely well suited for internal processes, such as for checkweighing,” adds Bruno Reckmann, Head of Sales at PFREUNDT.

The second item on the agenda, the products and solutions from Ma-estro, was scheduled for the afternoon. The initial focus was on the company’s own quarry, where the processes and possibilities were demonstrated in actual operations. The firm develops automation systems which monitor and regulate every stage in the production process in quarries and recycling plants, meaning it is no longer necessary for an operator to intervene. Alongside automation, the solutions primarily concern the optimisation of energy consumption and complete cost control. Cost savings help protect the environment, with up to 20% of CO2 of emissions and 30% of energy being saved per ton. The systems that have been developed are tested in the company’s own quarry before being launched on the market. The visitors were able to see this for themselves. At the end of the event, all the participants agreed that it had been an interesting day during which they had learned a lot and gained many new impressions.
