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.
The status quo
Quality "Made in Austria" - worldwide customers
Today, UNTHA employs 300 people all over the world. All shredders are developed, manufactured and assembled at the Kuchl site. UNTHA shredders are used in a wide range of applications, from material recycling to the processing of residual and waste wood and the reprocessing of waste to produce alternative fuels.
In this way, the company makes an important contribution towards the conservation of resources and the sustainable processing and reduction of waste. With subsidiaries in the US, Great Britain, Poland and Germany as well as a global sales network, the company is active in more than 40 countries on every continent and has an export rate of around 90 %, placing it among the world‘s leading manufacturers in this growing, future-orientated industry.
In addition to our headquarters in Kuchl near Salzburg, we have four independent sales subsidiaries in the USA, Great Britain, Germany and Poland.
Where we come from
Anton Unterwurzacher sets up a metalworking shop with five employees in Kuchl near Salzburg.
I didn’t really think about the direction the business would take. My goal was always to develop products according to customer specifications. The customer was always king. We certainly had to pay our dues along the way – the fact that the business developed as it did was partially due to luck.
Founder of UNTHA shredding technology
