 About the Company

In the early 1970s, we entered the recycling equipment industry, working to become the preferred supplier to numerous banks, paper packaging and scrap processors. By the late 1980s, we had provided hundreds of systems to recycling plants, printers, box plants, document destruction and manufacturing operations.

Stemming from our experience repairing and servicing customer's machinery, we developed extensive knowledge in the rebuilding of balers, shredders, conveyors and recycling equipment. After witnessing numerous problems customers faced resulting from installing lower quality rebuilt equipment from other vendors, we focused on providing a better product. 

We committed ourselves to perform the difficult work other dealers only talk of providing.  We perform this work with painstaking attention to detail. The result is premium-conditioned reliable equipment. We support this equipment with a premium warranty.
