For more than 60 years, the name Kiesel has stood for state-of-the-art technologies, top quality and a focus on service for construction and material handling machinery. Today, the Kiesel Group has a sales and service network that is unique to these industries in Germany, Austria and Poland.
The company works with customers who work hard and expect competent partners. A strong service philosophy has always been the cornerstone of Kiesel's corporate culture, and shapes its thinking and actions for technical support, parts and accessories.
The Group is currently represented by more than 1,000 employees at more than 40 locations throughout Europe. As well as being the authorised dealer for Hitachi Construction Machinery Co. Ltd. (HCM) it also supplies special application equipment and attachments for Zaxis excavators, ZW wheel loader and EH dump trucks.
In 2018, HCM formed an agreement with a new Kiesel Group company, KTEG Kiesel Technologie Entwicklung GmbH (KTEG). This sees HCM's electric technology and KTEG's technical know-how brought together to utilise the components of current equipment, and create electric construction machinery that responds to the needs of customers.
With the establishment of this new company, the electric technology of HCM and technical know-how of KTEG will be brought together to utilize the components of current equipment, and creating electric construction machinery that respond to the needs of customers will be made possible.
Kiesel's CEO, Toni Kiesel
In October 2018 Kiesel not only celebrated its 60th anniversary, but also the opening of Coreum - die Baumaschinenwelt. Customers can see and experience the future of the construction and material handling industries at this unique location in the centre of Europe.
Kiesel is proud of its achievements, yet still conscious that the company's present and future were shaped by the past. Therefore, it is important to show and remember how this
success story began, with a collection of historic machines on display at Coreum.
Coreum - die Baumachinewelt located near Frankfurt
One of Kiesel's historic machines is a Hitachi UH121, which was previously owned by one of its customers. As shown, the UH121 worked for almost 8,000 hours before it was taken out of service. It was in poor condition when received by Kiesel, but it has been immaculately restored after the professional work of the dealer's workshop team.
|Engine rated power (PS/rpm)||140/1,750|
|Feature||The UH121 was launched in 1981. It has a bucket capacity of 1.2m3, an operating mass of 26t and an engine output of 164PS, and is the founder of the current ZX280-7. As a large horsepower engine and the first to equip an arm 2 pump confluence circuit as Hitachi excavator, it was highly evaluated as a hydraulic excavator that can handle a large amount of work.|
