SMT Scharf GmbH has concluded a cooperation agreement with Mühlhäuser GmbH for the exclusive marketing and sales by Mühlhäuser of a jointly developed logistics solution for tunnel applications worldwide.
Hans Joachim Theiss, CEO of SMT Scharf AG, said, “Based on our monorail we have developed a tunnelling logistics system together with Mühlhäuser which forms the basis of the sales partnership. This system uses the proven SMT Scharf technology of running on the tunnel roof. The novel calotte train system is adapted to the transportation requirements of tunnel logistics. With Mühlhäuser we have a partner with many years’ expertise in the market for tunnel logistics, which differs from mining underground transportation in many respects. By combining our core competencies we can tap a further business area lying outside our core positioning in mining with considerably faster implementation and significantly better prospects of success.”
Markus Rechner, CEO of Mühlhäuser, adds: “Through the cooperation with SMT Scharf we aim to further expand our position as a world market leader in logistics systems in tunnel construction. We will market the novel logistics system on an exclusive basis in our global sales region. A first customer order for a complete logistics system including locomotives, materials handling solutions and related rail systems and services is expected soon.”
