A ground-breaking technology on the path to global success

A never-ending story of success

From the modified road milling machine to the highly specialized cold recycling train – that’s a brief way of summing up the impressive history of development of the cold recycling technology at WIRTGEN. From the beginnings – in the mid-1980s – we were fascinated by the huge potential offered by cold recycling, and since then we have played a key role as the acknowledged technology leader in this field. So it goes without saying that we have paved our path to success with numerous innovative milestones.

Our comprehensive service and support during construction projects has always been of central importance, and was a contributing factor to the breakthrough of this method.

Market-leading and cutting-edge products for the Road and Mineral Technologies business sectors are constructed at the WIRTGEN brand headquarters in Windhagen, Rhineland-Palatinate. With its innovative, high-performance and cost-efficient products and technologies for cold milling, soil stabilization, hot and cold recycling, concrete paving and surface mining, WIRTGEN leads the world market in road construction and repair, as well as in mining natural rock and pay minerals.
