Mike Kerins is the new Mixing Division Sales Manager at the U.S. subsidiary BHS-Sonthofen Inc. based in Charlotte, North Carolina. BHS-Sonthofen has appointed him to further strengthen the sales team, which has quadrupled the number of mixers installed in North America since 2011. Moreover, BHS is now offering its customers the option to conduct material and field tests at their own facilities by providing laboratory mixers on a rental basis from the Charlotte location.

BHS-Sonthofen has brought in Mike Kerins to further capitalize on the continually increasing acceptance of BHS mixers in North America. Kerins has gained more than ten years of professional experience with concrete mixing technology while working for leading American manufactures such as Pavestone Company and CEMEX. He has commissioned, operated, and carried out technical service calls and quality checks on mixing systems at several sites in the United States. Alongside his B.Sc. magna cum laude from Clarion University of Pennsylvania, he also completed qualified further training at and earned certificates from the American Concrete Institute (ACI), the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA), the North Carolina Department of Transport (NCDOT) and the South Carolina Department of Transport (SCDOT).

Kerins’ tasks will include consulting customers on all topics concerning BHS mixing technology. He will also draw upon his expertise to oversee test installations and material tests with laboratory mixers that customers and interested parties can rent in order to carry out mixing tests at their own facilities.

At BHS-Sonthofen Inc., Kerins will support project management in ensuring even shorter delivery times for mixers and spare and wear parts in the United States.

Dennis Kemmann, the Managing Director of BHS-Sonthofen GmbH, has the following to say of Kerins: “Mike is a recognized specialist who knows his way around concrete plants and construction sites. He has familiarized himself with all different kinds of mixers over the course of his career. We are happy that he has chosen to come on board with BHS-Sonthofen and bring his wealth of expertise to the table.”

Ever since BHS-Sonthofen Inc. established the Mixing Division in 2011, the company has successfully established the German mixers on the American market. For instance, twin-shaft batch mixers are used to produce the lion’s share of the 220,000 m³ of in situ concrete required to construct the New NY Bridge. They are also producing tens of thousands of cubic meters of concrete for the bridge’s precast structural elements, some of which weigh over 300 tons. BHS-Sonthofen single- and twin-shaft batch mixers are also becoming increasingly popular for use in dam stabilization projects and for conditioning backfill material in mining applications.
