Putzmeister designs and assembles concrete and industrial pumps – long booms mounted on trucks that can extend to 200 feet for pouring concrete on to locations of a construction site that is difficult to access.

Interior plumbing systems put in to support infrastructure; Water distribution & drainage to support equipment testing functions; included compressed air distribution piping.

Putzmeister engineers design the machines at their main plant in Germany and assemble the components at locations throughout the world. The manufacture of the components for these machines is almost completely outsourced. The 50,000 SF building houses offices and a new manufacturing assembly plant. The 40 foot high exterior walls of the facility allows a unique assembly system for the Manufacturer’s special concrete pumps. Four years after the Racine plant opened, expansion plans were developed to double the facilities’ amount of square feet for a Painting & R&D Addition, truck engine load test bays, and 40 foot exterior walls to allow for unique assembly system for manufacturer’s concrete pumps.
