Stadler acquires majority stake in weeeSwiss Technology
“weeeSwiss is a perfect fit for Stadler,” stated Willi Stadler, CEO of Stadler Anlagenbau GmbH. “Through this partnership we are extending further our product line to include electronic waste, which is set to become an increasingly important sector in the recycling industry. Our customers will benefit from the expert know-how of weeeSwiss in WEEE recycling facilities together with the benefits of Stadler’s worldwide sales and service network, our strong project management capabilities and experience in building large sorting plants.”
Jochen Apfel, CEO of weeeSwiss, adds: “With the growing needs of the market for metals that are directly involved in the evolution of our technologies, e-waste recycling is gaining importance by the day. It is a business with great opportunities because the demand is driving commodities prices up, so that they quickly pay back the investment in a plant. Countries across the world are seeing the environmental benefits of e-waste processing, and its business potential. Together with Stadler’, weeeSwiss is in the ideal position to meet the requirements of this challenging market with market-leading WEEE recycling plants.”
