In May 2008 Putzmeister reached a world record in vertical concrete pumping: 1,988 feet, (606m). They used a specially designed concrete pump, type BSA 14000 SHP-D, for construction of the Burj Khalifa.[2] In 2008, Putzmeister broke its own record by pumping concrete to a height of more than 700 m, also on the Burj Khalifa project.[3] As of 2011, an even larger concrete pump was built and sent to Japan's post-quake relief effort.[4]

The current world record was set at on 7 August 2009 during the construction of the Parbati Hydroelectric Project, near the village of Suind, Himachal Pradesh, India, when the concrete mix was pumped through a vertical height of 715 m (2,346 ft) using a Schwing Stetter concrete pump
