STEINERT waste and recycling business to continue as UniSort

As of October 1st, RTT STEINERT, the Zittau, Germany-based subsidiary of STEINERT GmbH, is pooling all resources relevant to its customers in the waste and recycling sector at one location. The company will be doing business in Zittau under its new name, STEINERT UniSort.

Following from separation of its sales organization into waste, metal and mining divisions, STEINERT is now taking the next step consistent with these changes. In order to respond to customer inquiries more quickly and to enable its customer service to better meet customer needs, STEINERT GmbH has bundled all competencies regarding waste and recycling at its subsidiary in Zittau. 

"With the reorganisation, we are answering our customers' wish for short and efficient channels of communication and to incorporate refinements into projects more quickly," said Peter Funke, CEO of the STEINERT Group. According to Funke, "UniSort" has been associated with systems that use near infrared technology to detect and sort waste for many years already. The company's new name now gives this brand a place beneath the STEINERT umbrella brand.

Demand from recycling industry customers for sorting solutions has surged in recent years. Between 2017 and 2019, STEINERT's subsidiary RTT recorded a high, double-digit increase in turnover. 

"We see that our success comes from thinking in terms of sorting concepts, - rather than stand-alone machines as in the past. Today, we have more experience than ever before with the implementation and networking of systems with 20, 40 or even as many as 60 sorting machines. Customers come to us for concepts and solutions - this is what we stand for, now and in the future," said Funke. 

Steinert's Zittau location is currently hiring specialists (information:
