“We increasingly use tiltrotators with GPS”

Since starting up in 1971, Bickhardt Bau AG has grown into one of Germany’s leading construction contractors with over 1,600 employees.

One of the secrets behind its success is an ongoing drive towards innovative thinking and business development.

“We are constantly developing our work processes. We increasingly use tiltrotators combined with GPS,” says Karl George, machinery manager and project manager at the company.

Bickhardt Bau AG was founded in 1971 by engineer Peter Bickhardt. The company started on a small scale, but rapidly expanded thanks to a constant aim to enter the process as early as possible in order to gain a turnkey contract.

Today the company has several design engineers and project managers that lead projects from square one right through to completion and inspection.

“No job is too big for us,” says Karl George at his office in Kirchheim.

It’s a big office – and it needs to be. Various plans are lying open for projects in progress, such as a motorway including a large bridge over a valley.

International initiative

The company has become a specialist in large turnkey contracts ranging from roads and railways to dams. Germany is the domestic market, but the company also has operations in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates and in Wroclaw, Poland.

The company has a natural openness to innovation, and after trying engcon tiltrotators it’s never looked back.

“We have three tiltrotators, and the operators who use them would never want to go back to traditional digging,” comments Karl George.

One of the excavators has GPS and an engcon tiltrotator with sensors for the tilt and rotation functions.
