“Figuratively speaking, we are putting ourselves in our customers’ shoes and then developing process steps with recycling equipment offering benefits for customers,” says Patrick Lindweiler, Product Manager and Key Account Manager in the Waste Treatment and Recycling division. The STEINERT staff are concentrating on the applications of “sorting post-consumer packages”, “plastic recycling”, “sorting household waste”, “sorting commercial waste” and “cleaning green waste”. In the last instance, the RAL quality assurance method for green waste and the German Fertiliser Ordinance have become essential reading for STEINERT staff. At the start of the year, an in-depth understanding of green waste treatment resulted in the installation of a UniSort Black at KDM GmbH in Ratingen. The application for managing contaminated bio waste was on the agenda at the Remondis management meeting, where Patrick Lindweiler and Ulrich Laemers (Managing Director of KDM) shared their experiences with the entire group. Senior members of the Remondis Group’s management team were therefore able to have questions about their own systems answered directly and appraise for themselves the benefits of UniSort Black in treating green waste.
STEINERT is thinking outside the box for its customers. And just like the technology leader both at home and abroad, its customers around the world are starting to act. It’s essential to apply what works in Germany to international markets but customisation and familiarisation with those markets is always needed. While developments in German waste treatment often result from legislation, there are other causes in other countries. After all, the range of developments and changes in material treatment is vast. In the area between national requirements and technical developments in magnetic and sensor-based separation, it is our job to be a competent provider of solutions for customers.
STEINERT can look back on a 125-year history: founded in 1889 in Cologne, this family-run business is one of the world’s leading companies in magnetic separation and sensor sorting. With 300 employees, STEINERT generates an annual turnover of approx. EUR 100 million. In addition to 50 sales partnerships and joint ventures around the globe, the company also has subsidiaries in Germany, Australia, the USA and Brazil.
