AHE invests in new concrete block plant with ultra-modern and efficient production technology

Genuine Weser gravel, which has been extracted for decades from the company's own deposits in the Schaumburger Land, is the perfect basis for the high-quality concrete and gravel products of the AHE Group, which consists of AHE Schaumburger Weserkies GmbH, AHE Transportbeton GmbH and AHE Verbundsteine Betonwaren GmbH. With a versatile range of products extending from sand, gravel and grit through to high quality paving systems, the company offers the entire bandwidth of products for road construction, landscaping and garden construction. AHE has now built a completely new concrete block plant at its headquarters in Rinteln on the River Weser. Ultra-modern and very efficient production technology was thereby installed. The main machinery supplier was the Topwerk Group, which supplied virtually the entire plant equipment, from the mixing plant through the stone production to the refinement. The heart of the new production facility is the Hess Multimat RH 1500-3MVA block making machine – a particularly powerful machine developed for the high-performance range. The use of Colormix technology and special high-quality colour pigments enables AHE to manufacture slabs and stones with a very special colour brilliance.
