Ammann’s commitment to sustainability is often obvious. For example, a line of our asphalt-mixing plants includes “recycling” in the name.

Other times, the connection is not as apparent – though it is substantial, nonetheless. That includes technology that helps rollers reach compaction goals in fewer passes, minimising fuel burn and the associated emissions.

Our promise to our customers – and to the world at large – is to explore every means possible to reduce the carbon footprint of our products. We further pledge to continually evaluate our manufacturing processes for additional gains and to tirelessly focus on the safety of those who build the products.

The dedication to green plants and processes is not new at Ammann. We do, however, feel a renewed urgency to accelerate our efforts in the interest of global health. Sustainability is our focus today – and all of our days going forward.

INNOVATION

Sometimes, an entirely fresh approach is needed to meet challenges both new and old. Ammann’s advanced engineering team has a history of creative and innovative thinking.

The proof is in a host of green efforts – including the carbon-neutral asphalt-mixing plant, an Intelligent Compaction system that reduces fuel burn and emissions, the use of alternative fuels, and many, many more.

How can we use less, and how can we make what we do use last longer? These questions are at the core of Ammann’s sustainable efforts.

We pore over our existing plants, machines and processes in search of improvements, no matter how small they may seem. After all, incremental steps add up – a lesson we’ve learned over our more than 150 years in business.

What has this commitment brought? We’ve reduced emissions across all plants and machines, lessened fluid disposal needs and dramatically upgraded asphalt recycling capabilities – among other advances.

EMMISSIONS AND EFFICIENCY

SAFETY

Protecting the world around us includes keeping Ammann customers and employees out of harm’s way.

Plants and machines have built-in protections that keep operators, and others on the jobsite, safe. It starts with secure machine transport and includes jobsite safeguards such as infrared remote control and a dead man’s handle on machines – and lower sound levels at asphalt-mixing plants.

The pandemic has broadened the concept of safety – for both our customers and employees. It prompted Ammann to put steps in place to protect our customer interactions – and to safeguard our employees when building the plants and machines that help our customers succeed.

Meanwhile, Ammann manufacturing processes and facilities are constantly examined to ensure those who make the products are as safe as those who use them.

A commitment to sustainability is also apparent at Ammann’s manufacturing facilities throughout Europe, South America, China, India and Russia.

Modern machinery and streamlined processes minimise energy needs and lessen emissions, while lean practices conserve valuable natural resources.

Our operations reflect a commitment to employee safety and include advanced ventilation systems. Comprehensive training ensures employee safety – and proficient manufacturing.
