Lindner Recyclingtech announced a groundbreaking ceremony was held for its new factory premises on 18 September 2020. Established in Austria in 1948, and strengthened by the successes of recent years, the company said it is investing in a new site covering over 45,000 square metres. In addition to a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, the new headquarters will become an international ‘centre of excellence’ for waste recovery and recycling, in keeping with the circular economy concept, said Lindner.
“At the moment, the industry is undergoing a major change. Recycling rates and quality requirements for end materials are constantly rising and so we are continuing to develop new systems. Systems that enable our clients to meet these requirements,” said CEO and owner Manuel Lindner during the groundbreaking ceremony at the future Spittal-Ost headquarters. “To ensure that we can continue to do this efficiently, we are doubling our capacity and relying on the latest production technologies that meet industry 4.0 standards.”
Besides a robot-assisted manufacturing facility and a modern logistics centre, an academy focusing on recycling technology will be built on the site. Michael Lackner, Managing Director at Lindner, commented: “We were one of the industry’s pioneers and accumulated an enormous amount of application expertise. Today, we see ourselves not only as a machine manufacturer and technology partner, but also as a source of knowledge for our clients. That’s why it is so important to us to constantly expand this know-how, develop new solutions and systematically prepare and pass on the knowledge gained. We are looking forward to welcoming you soon to the new home of recycling.”
