Lindner & Mach Tech Services – a perfect partnership for the UK market
To learn more about this partnership HUB-4 took a trip to Spittal in Austria where Lindner have their head-quarters and production facilities. Nestled in this beautiful area of Austria Lindner was founded in 1948 and is still a 100% family owned business run now by the third generation of the family. With 340 employees globally they were the first to design, manufacture and install the World’s first RDF line in Germany in the late 90’s, and now they supply static shredders & plants and mobile shredders to over 100 countries worldwide and continue to grow their product range across alternative fuel solid recovered fuels (SRF), refuse derived fuels (RDF), waste wood, plastics, paper and metals recycling.
We talked with Ing. Mag. Michael Lackner, Managing Director of Lindner “We have 3 production facilities in Austria, our original production site and HQ here in Spittal, our dedicated electrical & electronic engineering site in Spittal and our extensive mobile shredders production facility in Feistritz, a short drive away. In Germany we also have a large sales & servicing subsidiary as we supply a lot of machines into the German market. We have a North American site which supplies the United States offering a complete sales & service solution. In other markets we work closely with our preferred
partners to supply and service our full range and in the UK we work with Mach Tech, our long-term and highly skilled partner. The basis of our business is to supply a very high level of service so that our clients always come back to us and that ethos runs through both our direct sales activities and our partners across the globe. We have training programmes for all our partners to make sure that they know exactly how Lindner machines need to be serviced and to be able to pass that knowledge onto their clients, this is done on a regular basis as new machines & updates come online.”
We asked Michael about the strategy for Lindner “After successfully producing static shredders for many years, in 2012 we launched the Lindner mobile shredder range and this lead to the creation of a brand new production facility in Feistritz in 2016 where all mobile shredders are now produced. Over the past few years we have also transitioned the business from just making shredders to providing a complete plant building solution to help our customers get the most from their waste streams, including other key technologies such as air separation, magnetic & non-ferrous metal separation, colour separation, washing and screening. This engineering knowledge has enabled us to build turn-key plants for our clients globally and we especially now want to promote this expertise in the UK market with Mach Tech to design, manufacture and install complete recycling plants for all kinds of RDF, SRF, waste wood and plastic applications.
