Boppard, 19/10/2023: Always a highlight in the construction machinery sector – the BOMAG Innovation Days took place in Boppard for the fifth time. Construction machinery manufacturer BOMAG welcomed over 1,500 guests from around 80 countries to its headquarters in Boppard from 18 to 21 September. Insights into the plant, presentations and, of course, machines and digital solutions in action provided the perfect setting for an informative and stimulating exchange among professionals.
“Think global – act local” is one of BOMAG’s central strategies for action today and in the future, as Ralf Junker, President of BOMAG, stated in his welcome speech. This is the only way an internationally positioned company can adequately meet customer requirements worldwide. And that’s why the construction machinery manufacturer is expanding its locations around the globe and recently opened a new plant in India.
In this spirit, the BOMAG Innovation Days also serve as a platform for the global exchange of information on new technologies and strategies. Ralf Junker: "It's a highly impressive event and a wonderful opportunity when 1,500 experts come together to discuss the future of road construction. We’re proud to be able to showcase new products and solutions from BOMAG to this large community. But we’re also here to learn from the experiences and requirements of our guests from all over the world and to develop new ideas.”
„BOMAG. In keeping with our motto “BOMAG. Building Better Roads”, the company offered a diverse program. Future-oriented digital solutions for road construction were presented in specialist lectures. During the subsequent factory tour, guests were given an insight into BOMAG's high level of vertical integration and could witness first-hand the quality awareness at all stages of the production process.
Visitors also got to see the latest products in practice during an action-packed machine demonstration in the demo and training center. BOMAG demonstrated the entire construction cycle from planing, stabilising and compacting to asphalt laying and repair work under real-life conditions.
This year’s BOMAG Innovation Days placed special emphasis on the two digital products BOMAP and ASPHALT PRO. The BOMAP assistance system monitors the results of both soil and asphalt compaction in real time, independently of the manufacturer. This makes it easy to monitor and document the degree of compaction on the construction site. ASPHALT PRO helps plan, optimise and document the entire job site. With this software solution, site managers can significantly reduce the planning effort for upcoming road construction projects, monitor the ongoing paving process, and take corrective action quickly and in good time wherever necessary.
Fascinating technology was at the heart of the BOMAG Innovation Days 2023. At the same time, BOMAG announced a significant economic achievement. For the first time in the company's history, the company surpassed the 1 billion mark in annual sales. A milestone that impressively underscores the strength and stability of the major construction machinery manufacturer.
