Kick-off in Villingen-Schwenningen.

Unimog general distributor plays host.

Unimog general distributor Knoblauch GmbH hosted the Unimog Tour in Villingen-Schwenningen. Together with 26 equipment and body manufacturers, the dealership presented customised implement and body solutions for economical year-round use. In addition to exhibits for construction work and the summer and winter service provided by local councils, there were also vehicle solutions for various agricultural applications, fire service operations and combined road-rail operation.

Expert visitors from south-west Germany, France, Switzerland and Austria journeyed to the first stage of this year's Unimog Tour. The guests included numerous decision-makers and drivers from local councils, road maintenance services and service provider companies involved in a range of very different industries.

Bodybuilders make Unimog more efficient.

Claus Roth presented an entertaining summary of the Unimog success story and examples of recent applications. The head of sales from Mercedes-Benz Special Trucks emphasised the efficient interplay between the basic high-performance Unimog vehicle and the equipment and body solutions: "The Unimog offers a unique concept for innumerable applications. But what makes it so strong is the combination of implements and bodies. The high quality of the finished product can only be guaranteed by using reliable and performance-oriented partners. Therefore our thanks go to all of the partner companies which make such an active contribution to the success of the Unimog Tour."

Two of them said a few words at the kick-off event for the Unimog Tour. As the long-time head of a motorway road maintenance depot, Lothar Schüsselbauer from RSA-Schulungsteam was able to report on the practicalities of construction site safety. Michael Normann from ELASKON Sachsen GmbH & Co. KG provided a great deal of information and tips on care and preservation during his presentation.
