AMCA International, formerly known as Dominion Bridge Co., Ltd., recently announced a major reorganization of the recently acquired Koehring Company. The move concentrates all of AMCA's construction equipment businesses under the Koehring name, making the company one of the largest crane manufacturers in North America.
As part of the expansion program two executive vice presidents have been appointed: Karl H. Schwamborn, founder of the company's BOMAG unit, an international manufacturer of compaction equipment, will be responsible for worldwide operations of both BOMAG and Menck, a West German producer of pile driving hammers.
Vincent L. Martin was formerly head of AMCA's crane manufacturing o p e r a t i o n s at Clyde Iron, Morgan Engineering and Provincial Crane. Mr. Martin will be responsible for all product lines in the new Koehring organization including: Bantam and Lorain cranes, Clyde Whirley cranes, Bantam and Koehring hydraulic excavators, Koehring specialty construction equipment, Benton Harbor hydraulic cylinders, HUSCO hydraulic control valves, Pegasus servo valves and load simulators, and specialized woodlands hydraulic harvesting equipment and paper mill machinery.
In addition, a new division has been created which adds new products to the Koehring line. It, too, is Mr. Martin's responsibility.
The new products are: Morgan industrial cranes and oil field pumping units; Provincial industrial cranes; and Speedstar oil, gas, mineral and water well drilling equipment. Heading the new division as its president is Joseph R. Stadelman, who has been and continues to be general manager of Morgan.
Richard T. Lindgren, president of Koehring, will focus his efforts on planning the worldwide growth of the new group, expanding product lines, and building an even stronger distributor network.
