In 2017 the Vecoplan Group continued its successful development of recent years, interrupted only by a brief period of stagnation in 2016. The leading supplier of solutions for shredding, conveying and processing primary and secondary raw materials has now received two major orders worth many millions. This development and the fact that Vecoplan is also working with increasing earning power in the current financial year is why the company’s management has now given employees an early share of the profits for the year.
Several highlights of Vecoplan’s fiscal year 2017 came in the autumn. The Wood/Biomass division was awarded the contract to supply conveying and storage technology for a furnace charging system in a Russian power plant – and the Recycling/Waste division landed another major order from a customer in Germany to supply and install a complete processing line with conveyor technology. This line shreds and separates substitute fuels and separates ferrous and non-ferrous metals – and the order includes a VVZ 250 T twin-shaft shredder and two VEZ 2500 T series high-performance shredders, which have set a benchmark in the market for consistently high throughput and homogeneous output quality. These machines helped Vecoplan to come out on top against strong local competition.
“The good order backlog means we can face the future with confidence,” says Werner Berens, CEO of Vecoplan AG. “Customers get genuine benefits from our innovations and improvements of our proven products.” The market leader has subsidiaries and sales offices in the USA, UK, Spain, and Austria. Vecoplan’s wide range of services also includes integrated project management, comprehensive service with installation and commissioning and maintenance work, so customers can obtain everything from a single source.
