Eldan delivers first tyre shredder to Venezuela
Danish recycling equipment manufacturer Eldan Recycling A/S has recently delivered a tyre shredding machine to the biggest retread manufacturer in Venezuela. The order is said to mark the first time Elda has delivered a product to a business in Venezuela.
The company, which has hundreds of employees, receives used tyres every day – mostly truck tyres and other large tyres that are retreaded to prolong the lifespan of the tyres. A part of the tyres is unfit for use and the retread manufacturer wishes to process these tyres in the Eldan Super Chopper as first step to recover the rubber, steel and textile, making it an environmental and profitable alternative to landfill.
Managing director, Dr. Toni Reftman stated: “This is a very interesting order for Eldan Recycling A/S as Venezuela has been a very difficult market to penetrate. We did, however, succeed to make contact with this company that has chosen to get its bearing internationally when investing in production equipment.”
The customer paid special attention to features such as durability, high productivity performance, low energy
consumption and little downtime for service and maintenance. “Our extensive experience with delivery of recycling equipment to the market may also have been an important factor,” said Dr Toni Reftman. cja
