MTS has been the innovation leader for fully hydraulic add-on compactors and soil improvement for many years now thanks to numerous innovative product developments.

The Hayingen-based civil engineering specialist has revolutionised the geometry, hydraulics and other components of conventional compaction technology time and again over the last few years with the development of several generations of add-on compactors and has been honoured with numerous awards for its groundbreaking inventions. The result is a technically sophisticated modular system that converts standard compactors into real all-rounders through the use of various additional options (WA, X3, etc.).

A few examples of the most important awards in the company's history are listed below:
