Ethos & Innovations
UNTHA UK’s ethos and innovations
In the waste shredding industry, innovation is crucial. Why? Well, consider the waste management landscape…
Environmental and legislative pressures are mounting; recycling parameters are ever-changing; landfill diversion is an increasing priority; fossil fuels are becoming depleted therefore there is a growing need to secure alternative energy sources; and businesses are striving to work smarter than ever to drive down costs and improve their competitive advantage.
All of these factors mean that waste shredder manufacturers cannot afford to stand still. Providers must devise and deliver solutions that add value and help clients satisfy everyday waste management challenges.
A commitment to continuous improvement and innovation has underpinned UNTHA’s ethos since the company’s inception. Innovation lies at the very root of the company’s heritage and ensures UNTHA still stands out from the crowd today.
As a result UNTHA UK boasts one of Europe’s most comprehensive fleet of shredders, to cover all shredding applications. Each one has been extensively researched, cleverly developed and rigorously tested, and clients have been consulted throughout to ensure the functionality will not only meet expectations, it will exceed them.
UNTHA’s state-of-the-art test centres in Kuchl (Austria) and North Yorkshire allow customers to put the waste shredders through their paces. Real trials are conducted under practical conditions with clients’ specific materials, to demonstrate that the technology delivers on promises. Test findings are invaluable not only to the client but for the UNTHA design team too. Every piece of data is a gem of information for a new idea or technical development.
This passion for innovation is cultivated throughout the entire UNTHA UK team via the UNTHA Academy in Austria and through ongoing personnel development opportunities from UNTHA UK’s North Yorkshire headquarters.
And it doesn’t stop there…passionate about promoting positive change within the waste and recycling industry, UNTHA UK’s waste consultants share their knowledge at every possible opportunity. The team of experts are regularly asked to speak at leading trade events and provide commentary for industry journals, plus UNTHA UK’s informative resource centre allows new and existing clients to digest UNTHA’s innovations at their leisure.
