Exhibitor Interview: Vecoplan

In our next Exhibitor Interview we caught up with Martina Schmidt, Head of Business Unit Recycling/Waste at Vecoplan about the plastics recycling market and what makes Vecoplan stand out from the crowd.

Vecoplan AG develops, produces and markets machinery and plants for shredding, conveying and processing primary and secondary raw materials gained in recycling processes. With its technologically sophisticated solutions Vecoplan belongs to the leading international companies of the industry



What do you think is currently the biggest challenge facing your industry?

Nowadays recycling goes along with circular economy, which aims at eliminating waste and continual use of the resources. The challenges for our industry are to provide machines and systems which are capable of producing efficient and high quality processed materials.

We see ourselves in a prime position to offer such benefits as Vecoplan AG already develops, produces and markets machinery and plants for shredding, conveying and processing different input materials for recycling processes, and has done so for over 50 years. With its technologically sophisticated solutions, Vecoplan is known as one of the leading international companies within the industry.

With an increasing global focus on sustainability, we are constantly met with new competitive challenges. 

By being close to our customers and markets we meet these challenges and support on an international level with leading and superior products, technologies and complete systems.

We have been setting technological standards on the market for and with our customers since 1969. 

All our activities - research, development, construction, engineering, consulting, planning, implementation, and services - are aimed at enabling our customers to work optimally with Vecoplan technologies. We therefore take care of every detail to generate benefits to our products. Our machines are energy efficient, robustly designed for high loads and reliability, achieve above-average throughput rates and transform input material into high-quality output, creating maximum value. Vecoplan systems and technologies are rigorously adapted to provide a competitive edge in our customers market. 


Are there any new technology developments that your company is working on at the moment?

The market is very agile and dynamic. In recent years Vecoplan has initiated a development offensive integrating industrial design into shredding, our core competency. We experience sustainable success every day that keeps on moving and pushing product development and innovations. Visit us on our booth to learn more about our recent projects.
