Mr. Schaper, you are the Global Used Equipment manager for Dynapac. Could you please tell us your story?

I was growing up with used Construction machines because my father had his own business and today I am over 34 years in business.

20 years ago, I recognized my preference for Road Construction Machines because I was born in Hameln / Germany the hometown of the legendary ABG TITAN Paver. I worked 16 years for ABG and later three years for BOMAG before I changed at the beginning of 2019 to DYNAPAC.

2) Why did you choose to work for the Dynapac brand? 

Because the Company belongs to the FAYAT Group = a multi-flexible Family Business and very close to the customer and markets with the Premium Brand DYNAPAC.


3) Dynapac is one of the leading brands for Compaction, Paving, and Compact Equipment. What are your brands and equipmentsstrengths

Very flat hierarchy, quick and fast decisions, and interactions when markets and techniques are changing = real Family business.

Very important because pavers are not only a machine it is a tool which it is mandatory to achieve quality paving.


5) Dynapac is well known in the whole world but in which countries, areas of the world, or even continents are you more present

Of course, we are very strong in North Europe because of our long Swedish history and tradition. Other DYNAPAC dominated countries are the US, South America, MEA, and the far east incl. Oceania

7) Due to the current Covid situation that we are all facing, business transactions are a bit slow and tradeshows are most canceled. How do you handle the situation

We do our very best to not lose contact with our customers by using TEAMS Video communication and using function Videos of new and used machines to give our customerbusiness partner as much as possible information to decide also with limited personal contact


8) To which event do you plan to assist in the coming year? SAMOTER in Verona? INTERMAT in Paris? Any others

If possible I like to join both events and the NORDBAU in North Germany because this trade show has always many customers from Scandinavia and the Baltics.
