Metso compact shredders proving themselves in recycling and waste
Metso Waste Recycling's new K series of compact pre-shredders, launched in 2019, has got off to a strong start, according to the Finland-based manufacturer. The K Series has had a particularly strong start in Germany, so far, where three major recycling companies have already made purchases, and many more have shown interest.
According to Metso, these compact shredders are designed to appeal to both new and existing customers, and have also been sold to customers in many different countries so far, where they have managed to prove themselves for high flexibility, easy maintenance and low production costs in waste management, recycling and various applications.
Meeting a specific need
The K series is targeted specifically at waste recycling and is characterized by impressive efficiency and high flexibility, according to Metso. These machines can easily be adapted to customer-specific fractions - even when they change. At the same time, the series' unique design means that the shredder is easy to use and easy to maintain, keeping costs down to an absolute minimum.
Sales managers for Germany, Kurt Max Beyer and Matthias Reinert, attribute this great start for the K Series to two factors. Firstly, Metso Waste Recycling's shredders have a good reputation among the discerning German industrial audience. Secondly, the K series meets a specific need in the recycling and waste management market.
"Through a wide range of applications, the customer can create the optimum solution for the specific challenges they face," said Kurt Max Beyer. "This flexibility is the very essence of the K series, with the intelligent design that makes servicing and upgrades far easier to perform than on any other shredder on the market."
Matthias Reinert also emphasizes the series' low cost price per tonne and stable production as key reasons for the significant interest from Germany specifically. These days, despite COVID-19, he says he is kept busy talking to interested German companies, and expects many more K series shredders to soon follow the first three sales.
