It's getting more colorful on Hamburg's streets: the north German pump service provider betonlift GmbH & Co. KG has come up with something special for its new S 61 SX large boom pump from SCHWING. The new flagship has a striking wrapping over the familiar beige paintwork. The truck-mounted concrete pump was recently used for the first time in the port of Hamburg. In contrast, the cooperation between the two companies SCHWING and betonlift is long: For many decades there has been a trusting and mutually valuable cooperation between customer and supplier. As a long-time buyer of truck-mounted concrete pumps, truck-mixers, stationary pumps and other equipment, the Hamburg-based company has been able to provide numerous suggestions for product improvement over the years that have been incorporated into series production. At the beginning of October, in addition to the managing director Philipp Schmidt-Didlaukies, the sales manager Horst á Tellinghusen also visited the main plant in Herne to receive a new S 61 SX, painted in company colors and with a special design. The new S 61 SX has now been used for the first time during construction work on the Strandkai in Hamburg in HafenCity. From the five northern German locations, betonlift operates one of the largest truck-mounted concrete pump fleets in Germany and, with over 105 machines, is the largest privately owned concrete pump rental company in Germany. The company is a firm fixture in construction projects of all sizes in the Hanseatic city and the surrounding area. For example, with its SCHWING-Stetter products, betonlift was involved in the elaborate renovation work on the “Alter Elbtunnel” and in the reference project for the “Tanzenden Tuerme”, an award-winning high-rise building at number 1 at the eastern entrance to the Reeperbahn. Currently, truck-mounted concrete pumps and stationary concrete pumps from betonlift are working on the construction of the fifth lock chamber in Brunsbuettel and on the Ueberseequartier in Hamburg, which has a special size with around 350,000 m³ of concrete volume.
