With roots dating back to the 1970s, UNTHA has become globally renowned as ‘the reliable brand’. But (we hope we don’t sound like we’re blowing our own trumpet), by saying that this strapline doesn’t really do us justice. Yes, our commitment to technological excellence means our shredders have become renowned as the most robust in the market, but there’s far more to UNTHA than that. Breaking new boundaries – via the power of engineering – is in our DNA.
Because shredding is all we know, we’ve continually been first to the market with innovations that have been much-admired – and even emulated – but never surpassed. We’ve involved industry operators in the R&D behind every new machine, in a consultative approach that achieves performance criteria operators didn’t even know they had.
Take our waste shredders… Industry performance has long been judged solely in terms of machine capacity or throughputs. But we knew innovation could drive down energy consumption; boost the yield of a high quality, on-specification product; safeguard uptime stats; lower the whole life costs of the plant; and reduce noise/dust levels to better protect operator wellbeing. All of these components add up to a more profitable shredding system for our clients’ facilities. Your bottom line is our priority.
Our commitment to executing projects with maximum bottom line impact for clients, sees us innovate our service products and the people-driven processes within the company, as well as our shredders. We continue to invest in project management systems that result in seamless installations and robust relationships that will last for many years to come. This, combined with our portfolio of UNTHA service products, sees us support clients long into the future – ensuring the highest possible levels of machine ROI.
Our reputation for client ROI – plus our identification of new industry opportunities – means our expertise is often sought during the earliest stages of a project. Having worked on many waste, recycling and alternative fuel production sites in the USA alone, we can advise on plant design, integrated ancillary equipment, product specifications, process optimization and even offtake options for the output material. We also try to share as much of this insight as possible, via the various industry events that we’re involved with.
Our shredders are equipped to tackle most challenges that customers ever throw at us. But what about when we encounter something new? Working in close collaboration with UNTHA Austrian HQ, we have the combined ability to break new boundaries via our Salzburg innovation centre. Customers are even invited to join us by trialling their machines using their own materials, in Austria, or the USA. Salzburg is home to the UNTHA Academy too, where our sales team, engineers and support staff from all over the world are trained, and a shared passion for innovation is cultivated.
