UNTHA continues expansion into Japan

Austrian-headquartered industrial shredder manufacturer UNTHA is continuing its global expansion with an exclusive distributor agreement with Axia, in Japan.

The partnership reflects growing demand from the nation’s Waste to Energy market, with alternative fuel manufactured from plasticised material currently proving particularly popular.

Axia – headquartered in Kurashiki City – has taken delivery of a mobile XR unit, to use as a demonstration machine on customer sites throughout the country. Capable of handling municipal solid waste, commercial and industrial waste, and waste wood – as well as bulky materials such as tyres, mattresses, textiles and more – the XR is a high performance shredder, also available as a stationary machine.

Axia has already placed orders for six UNTHA XR shredders, which are currently being commissioned in Japan and will be maintained by Axia’s own engineers thereafter. Customers include waste specialists and alternative fuel producers for thermal power plants.

UNTHA has more than 10,000 shredders installed globally – details of recent contracts can be viewed in AcuComm’s WasteView Contract Finder: http://ow.ly/7KbK50HhaqIUNTHA
