With over 2,000 employees worldwide, Magotteaux produces numerous products for mining, sand and gravel extraction and recycling companies.

The branch in Aubrives, France,  specializes in castings for the demolition and shredding industry as used in rotary crushers, hammer mills and shredders. In 1997, this led to the development of X-win, a revolutionary composite material in the wear technology.

Magotteaux gives high priority to innovation. In the last three years, a new generation of Recyx blow bars has been developed for the recycling industry, where the life is further extended (more durable than X-win), without the risk of fracture. At Magotteaux safety is indeed paramount.

Recyx, martensitic alloy blow bars, have the same tensile strength (with an impact strength greater than 100 J/cm2) as Xwin blow bars.

Geha Laverman has been working with this high-tech company for more than 25 years.
