Metso Outotec to divest its Metal Recycling business

Metso Outotec has signed an agreement to divest its Metal Recycling business line to an affiliate of Mimir, an investment company based in Stockholm, Sweden. The closing of the transaction is expected to take place during the first half of 2022.

The Metal Recycling business sold to Mimir includes the brands Lindemann and Texas Shredder. The business will change name in conjunction with the divestment and operate globally under the Lindemann brand, with headquarters in Düsseldorf, Germany. Its current approximately 160 employees will transfer to the new company in connection with the transaction. The net sales of the business totalled €77 million in 2020.

Metso Outotec announced in October 2020 that it intended to divest its recycling businesses. The divestment of the Waste Recycling business has already been completed. “As an established standalone company, its full focus will be on the metal recycling markets and customers,” commented Piia Karhu, Senior Vice President, Business Development and Metal Recycling business line at Metso Outotec.

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
