Doosan delivers for Oberrheinische Baustoff
Germany-based Oberrheinische Baustoff (ORB) opted for a Doosan DX420LC excavator following a three month trial of the machine from Doosan dealer F Schünke at the granite quarry.
With the previous excavator at the quarry definitely showing its age, ORB invited various manufacturers to provide excavator models to compete in the three month stone quarrying test to find a replacement. According to ORB, the Doosan machine was a clear winner with it delivering up to 35% less fuel consumption than one of the other models on test.
ORB managing director Norbert Buchheitsaid, “In addition to the performance capabilities of the machine and the dealer’s proximity, Schünke was chosen for the positive experience we have had with regard to the dependability and service offered by the company.”
ORB was founded in 1995 following the takeover of the company, Schuck, by the Swiss companies, Ernst Frey AG and Ziegler AG. In addition to quarrying, ORB also has asphalt mixing facilities and provides products mainly for road construction and flood protection.
