Philippi-Hagenbuch Inc. , the Peoria, Illinois based specialty manufacturer of off-highway truck enhancements, continues innovating in its fifth decade. As the calendar turned to 2019, PHIL officially kicked off its yearlong 50th anniversary celebration.

Off-highway trucks are designed to haul ton-after-ton of material throughout quarries and mines and traverse unpaved haul roads in the pursuit of building economies and infrastructure around the world. From time-to-time, the truck bodies on these trucks cannot contain the material they need to maximize efficiency.

For the first time in its long history of innovating rear eject technologies for truck bodies, Philippi-Hagenbuch Inc. (PHIL) has developed a body specifically for haul trucks that will never be used above ground. PHIL’s heavy-duty rear eject bodies are ideal for underground applications, such as mining, which require equipment that can take a beating, operate in low clearance environments and handle multiple types of loads.

Philippi-Hagenbuch’s (PHIL) line of rear eject bodies offer solutions for challenging hauling applications, from general construction, road construction and sand/gravel to mine reclamation and underground hauling situations where overhead barriers inhibit traditional dump bodies.

Philippi-Hagenbuch’s rolling wedge cutter offers an innovative material-cutting approach that could dramatically improve material trenching and mining processes while improving cut size and reducing cutting (coal) dust by as much as 50 percent, according to the manufacturer.

Philippi-Hagenbuch’s (PHIL) line of HiVol water tanks deliver exceptional safety in a design that optimizes capacity and enhances travel safety. PHIL developed its HiVol water tanks with a safety focus, and they fit any make or model of off-highway truck.

Josh Swank, vice president of sales and marketing of Philippi-Hagenbuch Inc. (PHIL) recently announced the signing of a licensing agreement with HÃ¥kan Johannesson, vice president of CeDe Group of Malmö, Sweden that commenced on Dec. 6, 2013. Under the terms of this partnership, PHIL is licensing its rear eject technology for use in off-highway body applications within the construction and mining sectors to CeDe for use in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Australia.

Philippi-Hagenbuch (PHIL) will feature its line of HiVol water tanks at booth 10610 at ConExpo-ConAGG, 2014. Specifically developed with a safety focus, HiVol water tanks provide a design that optimizes capacity and enhances travel safety. Built for any make or model of off-highway truck, the HiVol water tank series serves as an ideal solution for a multitude of applications, including dust suppression, fire protection, road construction and wash down, according to the manufacturer.

Volvo Construction Equipment has entered into an international supply agreement with Philippi-Hagenbuch Inc. (PHIL) to offer its customized products and technology including its proprietary ejector bodies, water tanks, J-Hook systems, sticky material carryback solutions in addition to other articulated hauler customizations.

Philippi-Hagenbuch Inc. (PHIL) announced LeRoy G. Hagenbuch’s induction into the inaugural class of the Pit & Quarry Hall of Fame.

Pit & Quarry, through its new Hall of Fame, recognizes, celebrates and preserves the history of outstanding leaders in the aggregates industry.

Philippi-Hagenbuch (PHIL) takes hauling hard rock and ore to a new level with its HiVol Hard Rock/Ore Bodies.
