With over 2000 employees, 10 operating subsidiaries, and 500 dealers in 20 countries, BOMAG's product line of machines for ground and asphalt compaction is broad and extensive, from lightweight tampers, to rollers weighing three to 25 tons, to landfill compact equipment weighing in at over 55 tons. Every seven to eight years the company develops a new generation of its product families to bring to market.
The equipment manufactured by BOMAG is used in a variety of construction applications that include but are not limited to, highway maintenance and repair, roadbuilding, construction projects such as the building of parking garages, rail track, trenches and pipeline, parks, playgrounds, industrial sites, airports, dams, landfill sites, DIY and landscaping, construction backfill soil stabilization, and chip spreading.
 What is compaction?
In the construction world, compaction can best summed up as "increasing the density of soil." There are two principle types of compaction force: static and vibratory.  Compaction is mandatory in the undertaking of any construction building process; a soil's load capacity or support through the use of mechanical compaction techniques enables structural stabilization. If performed improperly or not at all, settlement of the soil may occur, leading instead to structural failure.
 The Early Years
BOMAG was founded in 1957 and was first called BOPPARDER MASCHINEBAU GESELLSCHAFT MBH. Located on the Rhine River in Boppard, Germany, in its first year of operation the company invented the world's first double vibratory rollers with an all-drum drive known as the BW 60. Five years later in 1962, the company would produce a larger, self-propelled tandem roller for larger scale projects. Dubbed the BW 200, the machine weighed in at a hefty seven tons.
 Entering the U.S. Market
1970 was a pivotal year in the company's history. With the acquisition of a company named Koehring Co. based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, BOMAG established a U.S.-based operation in Buffalo, Ohio. Through the early '70s the company would continue to expand its product base to include light tandem rollers, self-propelled rollers, plate compactors, and tampers.
 Product Developments
In 1996 BOMAG introduced the world's first system for automatic optimization of compaction. In 1998, the system was adapted for use on self-propelled rollers. In 2001, BOMAG launched the Asphalt Manager, a system that enabled optimum compaction on asphalt layers by automatically measuring, controlling, and documenting changes in compaction.
Once owned by parent company SPX Corp., BOMAG was sold to FAYAT Group in 2005. FAYAT is the largest, autonomous group in France's private and national construction sector, operating as many as six core business divisions in the areas of building and public works, steelworks, electricity, electronics and IT, road equipment, material handling and hoisting equipment, and pressure vessels. As part of the acquisition, BOMAG assumed all responsibilities for the asphalt machinery business of FAYAT's subsidiary FAYAT Marini.
 The Company Today
In 2007, Bomag celebrated its 50th anniversary as the world's compaction leader, generating a financial turnover of more than $600 million euros.
