Specialist manufacturer of high capacity slurry application systems, SGT, has become part of the Bauer Group, expanding its portfolio of waste handling and application solutions.
SGT (Silage and Gulle-Technik) has made a name for itself primarily with the slurry loading system and large capacity tank for the Claas Xerion, converting the systems tractor into a self-propelled slurry spreader.
With the integration of SGT into the Eckart slurry tanker production site in Germany, Bauer wants to meet rising demand for high performance self-propelled applicators to spread slurry from cattle and pigs, and digestate from anaerobic digester plants.
Otto Roiss, managing partner of the Bauer Group said: “Our plan is to make use of the modern in-house plastics production capabilities at Eckart to manufacture the SGT tanks and for Bauer to take on responsibility for product development, production and after-sales service.
“The previous owner of SGT, Christiaan Seegers, as well as key employees, will remain involved, with Mr Seegers focusing more intensively on sales activities and innovations. With the industrial manufacturing resources and high quality standards of the Bauer Group, we expect extensive synergies for the products of SGT.”
This latest acquisition by Bauer Group broadens an already comprehensive product line for slurry handling and application which includes everything from the famous original hose coupling system to slurry mixers, pumps and separators, and the largest trailed tankers.
