30 million dollar order for Scheuch in the USAWith an order volume of 30 million dollars, the Scheuch Group is to build six dedusting systems at a plant in the Midwest of the USA by the end of 2024. This order again confirms Scheuch's market leadership and growth course in the field of ventilation and environmental technology.
In 2016, the Scheuch Group acquired two companies in the USA: the equipment specialist CAMCORP Inc. headquartered in Lenexa, Kansas, and the plant manufacturer Schust Inc. headquartered in Auburn, Indiana. The North America business unit was established to exploit synergy effects to the full. This acts as an umbrella for the two subsidiaries. “With these two acquisitions we entered the US market and have since grown rapidly. This major order once again decisively accelerates our growth in the USA. It also shows that the topic of air pollution control is almost as important in the USA as it is for us in Europe,” emphasizes Jörg Jeliniewski, COO of the Scheuch Group.
Everything comes from one source
The customer, who is relying on Scheuch’s know-how for this major order, is a global leader in the processing of non-ferrous metals. The plants will be handed over on a turnkey basis by the North America business unit. From delivery to manufacture, installation and commissioning, everything comes from a single source. The total delivery time is 18 months, and commissioning is scheduled for 2024. The Scheuch systems will remove particles from the company’s hot and cold manufacturing processes, thus making a decisive contribution to air pollution control.
Major project secures market access
A project of this magnitude required teamwork and the cooperation of all parts of the company involved. Schust, CAMCORP and Scheuch GmbH in Aurolzmünster in Austria jointly contributed to the successful awarding of the contract and implementation of the project. “The equipment itself comes entirely from the USA. The know-how for this large project comes from both the business unit in the USA and our headquarters in Austria. Important bridges between the USA and Europe have been and are being created here. The transfer of knowledge between the companies and the exchange of know-how run in both directions. We can only grow successfully and continuously if we learn from each other,” explains Jörg Jeliniewski. “A major project like this creates further market access for us. These references underpin our market leadership in Technology for Clean Air.”Back to overview
