Ammann Group has completed its acquisition of Volvo Construction Equipment’s ABG paving product line.

“ABG is a strong brand that we’re proud to welcome to Ammann,” says Hans-Christian Schneider, CEO of Ammann. “We will continue to build on ABG’s exceptional product line and reputation and provide complete roadbuilding solutions for the industry.”

The transaction included the transfer of Volvo CE’s paving businesses in Linyi (China) and Bangalore (India), as well as its ABG plant in Hameln (Germany).

The production of ABG pavers and screeds will continue at the Hameln site. Amman Group’s production plants in Mehsana, India, and Suzhou, China, will also begin operations shortly.

As part of the transaction, Ammann will keep the ABG brand name. “The ABG brand is synonymous with quality in the industry and aligns perfectly with Ammann’s history in asphalt compaction,” says Bernd Holz, Executive Vice President at Ammann.

ABG began as a repair business for construction equipment in 1945 and has since grown to become one of the world’s most recognisable paving brands. ABG recently launched a new electric paver at INTERMAT 2024 in Paris, demonstrating its commitment to continuous innovation.

“This synergy elevates our capability to provide comprehensive, cutting-edge road construction equipment solutions across India and the globe. It strategically positions us to cater to India’s burgeoning infrastructure needs that are critical towards building a strong base for sustainable economic growth. With ABG’s strong product portfolio, we shall intensify our delivery of high-performance paving products that align perfectly with our history of excellence in asphalt paving and compaction.”, says Dheeraj Panda, Managing Director of Ammann India Pvt. Ltd.

Ammann will use its industry knowledge and client ties to support paver development, with ABG in Hameln (Germany) serving as the Group’s Centre of Excellence for paving operations.

The paving products available are extensive, ranging from a simple screed width of 1.5 metres to 13 metres of paving width, which is used on job sites like airports and highways. Fixed and Variomatic screeds are available and can be used with a variety of materials, including asphalt, roller-compacted concrete, graded mineral mixes, and railway ballast.

“In addition to our smallest and largest pavers, we have several other models to meet the unique needs of every customer,” Holz mentioned.

The Ammann ABG paver product line is known for its sophisticated technology, ease of use, dependability, and build quality. They are intended to save fuel, minimise pollutants, and run silently. Both tracked and wheeled pavers are available.

The ABG screeds are also a crucial difference and have been for nearly 80 years. “The screeds have consistently raised the bar in the asphalt industry, a tradition that continues to this day,” Holz added.

ABG introduced the first hydraulically adjustable, high-compaction screed to the global market. Recent advancements include the e+ screed heat system, which may save 30 minutes of warmup time per shift while lowering CO2 emissions.

Today’s screeds have a single or double tamper, optional hydraulically operated end gates, an improved quick-coupling system for convenient expansion, and specific profile possibilities. The twofold tamper method achieves a 5 percent–7 percent higher degree of compaction and up to 98 percent Marshall density.

Variomatic screeds may pave at widths of up to 10 metres and come with a variety of compaction techniques. They are suitable for a variety of project types, including cold mixes, hot mixes, and customised profiles. The electrically heated Variomatic screeds can easily be expanded to more than twice the basic width.

Ammann’s broad dealer network provides access to pavers as well as a variety of light and heavy compaction equipment.
