Articulated dump truck (ADT) and wheel loader manufacturer, Bell Equipment, has opened its new German headquarters in Alsfeld. The headquarters includes the German and Central European sales and distribution departments, along with Bell Equipment’s international parts hub, the European Logistics Centre.
The Alsfeld complex has also been installed with a Bell ReMan Centre – the second such facility in Europe. The first was installed at Bell UK’s Burton-upon-Trent location. The facility offers the repair and rebuild of original Bell components, including axles, transfer cases, and hydraulic components, as well as transmissions and engines.
The opening ceremony was attended by 150 guests from neighbouring European countries and other global regions that will be serviced by the new logistics centre.
Over the next five years, the company plans further significant investment in its European operations, including the expansion of its European ADT production capacity in Eisenach. The manufacture of certain core components will also be transferred to Europe from its southern hemisphere facility in Richards Bay, South Africa.
