UNTHA shredders are renowned worldwide for their longevity – designed and engineered for what can often result in decades of operational life. But if you think you need to replace your machinery, make sure you’ve considered a shredder rebuild first. For approximately 60% of the cost of a new purchase, you could extend the life of your asset by typically 80-100% – we can even refinance the asset!
When we receive a shredder rebuild enquiry, the first thing we do is schedule a site visit so that one of our engineers can inspect the machine. This survey is the first crucial stage in the process – it enables us to assess if a rebuild is possible.
Based on the findings from the initial inspection, we outline the rebuild project detail, including how long the overhaul will take, the cost, and the impact the rebuild will have on the service life of the shredder. These all-important figures help to evidence the business case of this value-adding process.
When a customer confirms they’d like to go ahead with the shredder rebuild, we book in the project and arrange for the machine to be delivered to our HQ for a more detailed audit. If any further work is required – than we originally anticipated – we’ll ‘check in’ for authorisation before the rebuild commences!
Whether the rebuild is a quick and slick exercise, or far more extensive, we thoroughly test the machine in our trial department. Once the rebuild is signed off as ‘complete’, we then book in the dispatch and recommissioning work.
The launch of UNTHA’s shredder rebuild division was made possible by the Product and Process Innovation (PAPI) project, which is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020. The PAPI project is delivered by the University of York and provides grants that help businesses from the city and surrounding areas spearhead the creation of new goods and services.
