The SPMT was initially launched by both companies in Pfedelbach in 1983.

Scheuerle, a subsidiary of TII Group, and Mammoet’s joint introduction of the SPMT in 1983 revolutionized the heavy lift and transport industry. The introduction of the SPMT combined unprecedented payload capacity with electronic multi-way steering. This combination of technology paved the way for the completion of large-scale industrial projects that had previously been unattainable. Mammoet currently has 2,200 SPMT axle lines in operation.

Susanne Rettenmaier, a member of the TII Group management board, commented on the anniversary, “Most important for TII is that we offer reliable products that meet the needs of our customers. Mammoet shows what you can achieve with our vehicles.

Jan Kleijn, chief executive officer of Mammoet, emphasized the importance of the joint Mammoet-TII Group collaboration before the anniversary today. “A close cooperative relationship has emerged over the years between Scheuerle and Mammoet. As in all areas of life, trust is the basis of a good relationship. In this case, it was confidence in technology, quality service and sound advice. Confidence in our capabilities is what established Mammoet as the global leader in heavy transport today. Over 30 years ago, we held talks with several heavy-duty vehicle manufacturers. In the end, we chose Scheuerle, the most competent partner.”

Otto Rettenmaier, the owner of the TII Group, added, “Mammoet and Scheuerle look back today at a 30-year shared history of success. This is cause for celebration, but also an incentive not to rest on our laurels. Proximity to the customer will remain our priority in the future.”
