UNTHA America has joined the Construction & Demolition Recycling Association (CDRA), as the company’s reputation in this complex discipline continues to spread across the United States and beyond.
With more than 500 million tons of recoverable construction and demolition materials generated in the country, every year, this trade body is an important group which promotes innovation and collaboration throughout the industry.
Committed to sharing knowledge, engineering new technologies to solve difficult ‘waste’ problems, and partnering with others to drive change, UNTHA America’s membership is a natural fit.
With an established existing presence in this market – not least because of sales manager Ed Donovan’s extensive career in the wood sector – C&D is forecast to be a particularly growing
area for UNTHA.
That’s because news of the membership follows hot on the heels of the launch of the new UNTHA ZR – a high volume, two shaft pre-shredder for difficult materials including wood, metals, bulky waste, and more.
While this is a mature and competitive market, two years of R&D have enabled UNTHA to maximize the ZR’s energy efficiency, uptime, and ease of maintenance, meaning this powerful shredder promises the lowest total operating costs, in its class.
With an independent, bi-directional shaft rotation, the ZR’s aggressive cutters grab, shear and liberate material in forward and reverse, for a machine action that always shreds. The machine’s low speed, high torque drive enables the processing of severe duty applications
with ease, for a high level of shredder availability, and the modular, quick-change cutting table design presents versatility at the core.
“For more than 50 years, we’ve engineered shredders which turn materials that many people simply consider trash, into valuable resources,” commented UNTHA America’s president Bernhard Martinz. “As our global reputation has grown, we’ve continued to work with industry to research, develop and launch innovation after innovation, to tackle the ‘wastes’ which may have previously been considered economically ‘unshreddable’.
“This collaborative approach mirrors the work of the CDRA, and I look forward to what we can achieve together.”
