Bluemail June 2021 (Issue 2)

Remembering Werner Doppstadt It is with great sadness that on 20th April 2021, Doppstadt said goodbye to their founder and CEO Werner Doppstadt, aged 77. Born in Homberg, Germany, Mr Doppstadt transformed his parents’ farm into an agricultural contracting business with the help of Hedwig and Josef. The Doppstadt Group, which has headquarters in Velbert, was first established in 1965 and has gone on to international success. In 1970, Mr Doppstadt developed the PUMA cleaning machine, which the company says helped reposition the family enterprise as a developer of environmental and recycling machinery. It is said that as a mechanical engineer Mr Doppstadt could be characterised by his curiosity, his innovative spirit and his foresightedness with regard to customers’ needs and the market. Known by his catchphrase “I have an idea!”, Mr Doppstadt focused on possibilities, not problems, and invested all his energies and financial resources in the development of the business. In 2012 Mr Doppstadt passed on the management of the company to his son Ferdinand. Today, the Doppstadt Group has around 700 employees and provides a full range of services encompassing “every sector” involved in environmental technology and the recovery of reusable materials. Doppstadt Group realised a statement saying: “Thanks to his courage and entrepreneurial spirit, Werner Doppstadt was held in high esteem by the employees and enjoyed their confidence. His customers and suppliers always valued him as a competent partner. With his sense of humour and pragmatism, he was a well-liked boss for his employees and provided valuable support to his team.

Xcentric XC20 Crusher Bucket



Supplied by

Xcentric has changed the market’s perception of crusher buckets with its consistent quality and high-performance for rock crushing and recycling of materials. Built in HARDOX 400. Solid, durable, characterised by the recognisable clean lines designed to resist wear and high stresses in the toughest working conditions. Its versatility allows the use of this attachment in a variety of processes such as the reduction of use of heavy-duty mechanical vehicles and the number of operators. The demolition materials can be reused directly on site, thus reducing transport costs, and recycling in respect of the environment. Murray Plant supply the entire Xcentric crusher bucket range, including the XC20. This model can process 450 tonnes per day on a 20-tonne excavator, complementing a demolition contractor’s fleet for jobs that do not require large track- mounted crushers. Its reverse crush function frees blockages and the size setting can be changed in just two minutes, meaning less downtime. The XC20 has the unique ability to handle sticky material with the Xcentric crushing action. It is nimble around compact sites, and no haulage is required as it arrives on a trailer or with digger.

The closeness to each single employee, the talk in the workshop and the daily tour through the halls were part of his philosophy and the basis for the company’s success.” Everyone at Blue would like to pass on their condolences to Werner Doppstadt’s family and everyone at Doppstadt Group.
