The UNTHA brand Welcome to the world of reliable shredding technology!

Since the company was founded in 1970, UNTHA has been fulfilling its promise to be "The reliable brand", meaning that we do everything we can to be more reliable than other providers. This applies to all UNTHA products and services. For our customers, this means that choosing an UNTHA system was the best decision they could make.

Our positioning is based on our uncompromising reliability that can be seen in our products, services and all business activities.

This is what differentiates us clearly and continually from our competitors! Reliability is our promise, our core message and the essence of our brand. Problem-solving expertise, innovation capabilities, commitment to service and a focus on quality, are our central brand characteristics that lead to our success.

Innovation means progress and it drives our success here at UNTHA. Customer demands keep growing and technical requirements are becoming increasingly more complex. The combination of our in-house research and development department and the internal/external UNTHA test centres guarantee innovative and trendsetting shredding solutions. Many innovations, patents and awards evidence our leading role in the field of shredding technology.

Our problem-solving expertise is an important success factor. More than 40 years of expertise in shredding technology enables us to implement even the most unusual customer requests. UNTHA engineers will always find the right solution, however complex the project.

Based on extensive trials in our test centres, and on the technologies that have been tried and tested a thousand times over, we will always find the optimal configuration of the respective shredding machine. We solve many shredding problems that are beyond other manufacturers' abilities!


All shredding machines are developed, manufactured and assembled at our Kuchl location, – for quality from a single source "Made in Austria". The highest technical production standards, modern CNC processing centres and continuously conducted quality controls guarantee highest reliability. Thanks to this, our machines remain operational even under extreme conditions.

The UNTHA in-house quality management system focuses on the highest quality. Our most important objective is to achieve 100% customer satisfaction. To this end, all processes are continuously monitored. Products and services are subject to a continuous improvement process.

It is more than just the high reliability of our innovative products and technologies that have led to UNTHA's success. We are also renowned for the way we constantly strive to meet our customers' requirements, wishes and needs.

A comprehensive service network, quick replacement part provision, modern machine diagnostics and troubleshooting via remote maintenance, as well as cost-effective cutting unit reconditioning/reprocessing, guarantee that UNTHA shredding machines operate smoothly and fulfil the task they were built to do – to reliably shred.

Only a flexible company is able to fulfil complex customer needs and adapt to the continuously evolving market. Flexibility and the ability to adapt are therefore basic parameters that we take into account to the highest degree in all our processes. We manufacture more than 80% of our own components, to ensure maximum flexibility and short delivery times.

We keep our promises - without compromise! Authenticity means that you can trust in UNTHA's reliability. This promise ensures a fair and long-term relationship. Authenticity is therefore a central feature of our brand in all business activities.

Loyalty and constancy have always been important cornerstones of the UNTHA brand. This means having strong relationships with our distribution partners, customers, employees and suppliers that are supported to a large degree by commitment and a sense of duty.

We are fully aware of our responsibility to our distribution partners, customers, employees and suppliers as well as all stakeholders. We therefore always act in a sustainable manner and are committed to a responsible and ambassadorial approach to resources and the environment.
