The Asphalt team installed three V-Pack® Systems for its asphalt customers to provide even better plant control, increased productivity and cost efficiencies.
In early 2016, Astec Australia will also deliver Telsmith’s first 3258 Track Jaw Crusher to meet the demands of a growing recycling market.
The Aggregate team launched a rental division with the introduction of a fleet of track equipment targeting quarry contractors and successfully secured a number of long-term contracts.
During 2015, Astec Australia increased the number of customer schools and operating training workshops by fifty percent, with full attendance by key customers and facilitated jointly by Astec Australia and Astec Industries.
