TKIS, with subsidiary firms on all 5 continents and more than 19,000 employees all around the world, is one of the leading engineering companies equipping the chemical, cement and minerals industries. TKIS is a strong partner offering project elaboration, engineering and design, shipment, field assembly and commissioning, as well as comprehensive service activities, for complete production lines, individual products, plant conversions and upgrades. The efficient production of e.g. high-grade cement products demands far more than combining individual machines or even ideal partial process steps. The required success can only be achieved by considering the entire production process and optimising it as a whole, taking due account of capital cost and operating expenses. For this reason, TKIS systematically consolidates process and plant knowhow to create innovative concepts for the process sectors of raw material preparation, clinker manufacturing and cement manufacturing, which are in turn incorporated into economical overall solutions for the complete cement production process. TKIS supplies for the cement industry customer-specific plant solutions for profitable, resource-conserving and energy-saving manufacturing. As an internationally active company, TKIS competes and asserts itself on a worldwide scale. The TKIS research activities in the Research and Development Centre among others located in Neubeckum, Germany and research activities with external partners provide the basis for meeting the ever-advancing requirements of the world’s markets and for converting the knowledge gained during our result-oriented research into future-oriented products.
