Perfect logistics are required to ensure, with a global construction site network, that the right machinery, equipment and systems will always be at the right place at the right time. The ‘Maschinentechnische Abteilung – Mechanical Department’ (MTA) is responsible for the procurement, administration, planning and maintenance of the ALPINE Group’s enormous machinery and equipment park. In 2009, MTA operated 10 building yards that scheduled more than 41,000 construction site devices and achieved a turnover in rent of approximately 60 million Euro. Employees scheduled more than 242 cranes, 3,248 vehicles, 419 excavators and 531 rollers. It has its own workshops for servicing the machinery and equipment.
MTA is not only responsible for equipment planning in Austria, but also in Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Romania, Albania, Serbia, Sweden and Bulgaria. Furthermore, MTA provides its national and international logistics services to ALPINE’s subsidiaries and is responsible for large investments in preparation and production plants as well as asphalt mixing plants. In 2009, 94 million euros were invested in this area.
