From humbler beginnings, German waste shredding equipment manufacturer, HAMMEL Recyclingtechnik GmbH, has celebrated its 20th birthday as one of the industry’s major players. This slide show takes a look at how…
Something big usually starts as something small. The same is true for HAMMEL Recyclingtechnik GmbH. With only three employees, a small production hall, but a lot of commitment, the company was established at a site in Bad Salzungen, Germany on February 15th, 1996.
For the past 20 years HAMMEL has developed shredding and recycling technology and has developed into a major international company.
The manufacturer puts this success down to the tireless efforts of all employees when it comes to demanding recycling solutions and their ability to create innovative solutions and machineries tailored to individual customer requirements.
From its first first prototypes , over the last 20 years, the company has met the demanding requirements for shredding technology in the fields of wood, waste and metal with numerous innovations in recent years.
In 2012 the world's largest mobile shredder, the HAMMEL-primary shredder VB 1500 DK (pictured above), was engineered and introduced to the market.
This primary shredder is suitable for shredding used car bodies, mega tires and bulky materials. Just one year later the VB750 was launched. For more on that click the next page arrow.
