FPT INDUSTRIAL IS A MAIN PLAYER AT INTERMAT
Paris was the center of the Construction world at the end of last month. From April 23rd, more than 180.000 people gathered to discover new products and applications at the 2018 edition of Intermat. This was the 11th time that Paris brought together the best solutions regarding construction and infrastructures and FPT Industrial was there to show its own and to present itself as a Lifecycle solutions provider.
Primarily, FPT Industrial chose this scenario to further explain the technologies that were presented in a world preview during the last edition of Agritechnica and the development process behind them. At Paris Nord Villepinte, FPT Industrial exhibited its Stage V engines and its concept of the Connected Control Station, which combines engines development and optimization along with customer care.
On display at the FPT Industrial booth there were the F36, the Cursor 16, the N45 and the PowerPack – installed on a N67 engine. But there was more: FPT Industrial played a leading role with its sister brand CASE Construction Equipment and its partners. CASE CE welcomed FPT Industrial N67 engine at its booth, while the F34 was installed at the CASE Construction Equipment’s Customer Centre just outside Paris. The partner involved, instead, was Shantui, one of the top 50 manufacturers of construction machinery in the world, and one of China’ top 500 manufacturers, which launched two new dozers powered by FPT Industrial NEF engines.
Covering a range from 142hp to 652hp, the engines that were shown at Intermat apply to diverse applications, such as excavators, backhoe loaders, graders, dozers, skid steer loaders and many others. What bond them are the key features optimized by FPT Industrial: performance, great oil change intervals, maintenance-free after-treatment solutions, reliability and a whole process that connects the brand with the customer. This method distinguishes FPT Industrial as a Lifecycle solutions provider: this means that the customer is supported before, during and after the sale with a series of services. Before the sale, 15.000 product configurations are managed by a Product configurator that helps the customer in its decision-making process for the perfect engine, that can be also further optimized by an FPT Industrial Research and Development Center. When the engine is ready, customers can count on the FPT Industrial Technical Training School, that teaches them how to properly manage the engine, from installation to maintenance, through customized courses that can also have the scope to train customers and dealers in order to transform them into trainers themselves. Once the engine is in their hands, it can be monitored in any moment in real time: it can be tracked, located and studied in order to avoid downtime and to improve the way it is handled, while a Customer Control Room manages all the requests from customers, also offering a remanufacturing program which gives new life to the engines.
