Wirtgen Group showcase specialised road construction solutions

Some 4,000 customers and road construction experts from more than 80 countries flocked to the Road Technology Days held by Wirtgen, Vögele and HAMM on April 19 and 20. On the 370,000 sq m site of Joseph Vögele AG in Ludwigshafen am Rhein, the three companies of the Wirtgen Group’s Road Technologies business sectors provided practical insights into the latest developments in the fields of cold milling, cold recycling, soil stabilisation, paving and compaction. In addition to specialist talks by selected experts and technology exhibitions, visitors were also able to enjoy live demonstrations, factory tours and a machinery exhibition featuring around 70 exhibits. The high point of the event was a gala evening in the newly constructed 22,200 sq m dispatch hall at the Vögele brand headquarters. “A personal and professional exchange with our international customers is very important to us,” says Domenic G. Ruccolo, CEO of the Wirtgen Group. “That’s the only way we can develop tailored country- and customer-specific solutions in an industry with such diverse and highly differentiated requirements. This makes the Road Technology Days an ideal platform for exchanging knowledge and experiences.” Since 2005, the event has been held alternately at the brand headquarters of cold milling specialist Wirtgen, road paver manufacturer Vögele and roller manufacturer HAMM.
