Putzmeister Holding GmbH, headquartered in Aichtal, Baden-Württemberg, develops, manufactures, and distributes high-tech machines for concrete production, transport and paving worldwide. As one of the global market leaders in construction and underground engineering, the company, founded in 1958, has been involved in numerous international large-scale projects, including the construction of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the expansion of the Panama Canal, and the Wilshire Grand Center in Los Angeles.
With more than 20 branches, 12 languages, and 3,000 employees, Putzmeister enjoys an excellent reputation among dealers, customers, and the industry. For many years, the company has pursued an ambitious digital strategy and has been relying on Liferay software solutions since 2016. The collaboration began with a project to connect Putzmeister's globally-distributed collaboration platforms. After implementing an intranet based on Liferay, the extranet was relaunched with an aftersales platform with SAP integration.
