System Partnership

BETEK Wirtgen system partnership

A business success story of more than 30 years

In 1982, the history between Wirtgen GmbH and BETEK begins. Wirtgen is one of the first customers of BETEK, resulting in a system partnership with the whole Wirtgen Group. At the beginning the partnership is limited to the product areas Road Milling, Surface Mining and Stabilizers, but now BETEK also works together with Kleemann and Hamm e.g. for product area Crushing and Mixing.

This important combination of BETEK, the leading manufacturer of tungsten carbide and wear tools made from tungsten carbide, and Wirtgen, one of the market leaders in road construction machinery, guarantees our customers solutions at the highest level. Development, construction, production, quality control and sales are integral, always with the target of maximum customer satisfaction. 

The focus of Wirtgen and BETEK is on low cost of operation.

A high machine speed with minimum tool-change times yields a maximum daily production output. The equation for low operating costs only works if high performance machines are equipped with high quality tungsten carbide wear tools. Only cutting tools of the highest quality that are matched precisely to the machine and intended purpose can ensure a long tool life with flawless rotational properties. The long standing partnership between Wirtgen and BETEK pursues the goal of improving the cutting technology based on the common experience of the users. In this context, new application cases are the trigger for optimization or even new development of cutting tools and quick change systems, always with a focus on improving the cost-effectiveness of the cutting technology. Constantly increasing sales numbers confirm the concept which has the primary goal of customer satisfaction.

The Wirtgen Group and BETEK stand together for maximum customer satisfaction

The result of more than 30 years of successful system partnership between the Wirtgen Group and BETEK is well-coordinated system components with high savings for the users. The distribution of BETEK tungsten carbide tools for road milling is handled exclusively by the Wirtgen Group and their sales and service companies and official distributors. Service on construction sites is conducted for customers through the proven service network of BETEK and Wirtgen specialists. This guarantees the customer coordinated solutions from a single source. 

The short development periods to series production is a credit to the cooperation of the development teams and engineers from both companies, always aligned to benefit the customer.
