Erkat Moves Into New Production Facility

Published: 23/3, 2023

Drum cutter equipment manufacturer Erkat has moved into a new production facility. The new plant is located in the Thuringian town of Dermbach, Germany, not far from its old site. Erkat, part of the Epiroc Group, will significantly expand its production area for drum cutters at the new plant.

“We have a unique opportunity to expand our portfolio and help shape the future of Epiroc with our strong team,” explains Martina Schierholz, General Manager of Erkat. “The innovative power and agility of our team is an important location factor, so moving to another country was out of the question. Our location is and will remain in Thuringia, for products made in Germany.”

Torsten Ahr, Vice President Marketing for Hydraulic Attachments at Epiroc, adds that Erkat’s drum cutting technology will play an important role in Epiroc’s future.

“The products from Thuringia are marketed under both Erkat and the Epiroc brands,” he says. At the new site, we want to further optimize our production and continuously work on improving our portfolio. And we want to develop new products that are tailored precisely to the future challenges of our customers. That’s what the Erkat team is known for worldwide.”

Recently, with the help of the Erkat engineers, Epiroc became the first manufacturer to succeed in creating a V-shaped drum cutter that revolutionizes trench construction and delivers optimal results in many other application areas. A VC 2000 cutter will also be on display at Conexpo at Epiroc’s stand in Hall C, booth 31348.
