ThyssenKrupp is strengthening its plant technology capabilities in France by merging the formerly separate entities Polysius and KH Mineral to become ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions (France).
The step comes into effect as of 1 October 2015. This strategic move is another milestone for the ThyssenKrupp Group in its efforts to further promote the integration and regionalisation of its plant technology business worldwide. It pursues ThyssenKrupp’s overriding goal of integrating its businesses more closely to create sustainable value as a diversified industrial group. As of today, ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions employs around 300 employees at two locations in Aix-en-Provence and Sarreguemines, in France.
Under the roof of ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions, plant technology operations worldwide are managed by the two business units Process Technologies and Resource Technologies. Process Technologies is focused on engineering, procurement and construction for chemical, refinery and other industrial plants, while Resource Technologies offers a comprehensive product portfolio and a wide sales and service network to customers in the mining, cement, mineral processing and materials handling industries.
