Strautmann Umwelttechnik was founded in 1993 as part of the Strautmann Group.
Since then, bale and briquette presses are produced with the aim of reducing the volume of cardboard, foils, PET bottles, Styrofoam and residual waste as much as possible in advance of the disposal.
Strautmann Umwelttechnik grew to its current size with the idea of enabling retailers to market the pressed cardboard directly on site.
The shops should be able to press their large bales themselves in a quality that is accepted by the paper mills.
This has been and still is only possible with specifically powerful presses. Here the know-how and the long-time expertise from the agriculturally machines technology and the hydraulic production of Strautmann particularly kicks in. Thanks to the horizon of experience in the technological development of sturdy agricultural machines, combined with the knowledge of outstanding hydraulic cutting-edge technology for the construction of machinery and vehicles, in 1996 the first cardboard baler with a pressing force of 600 kN could be brought on the market. Until today it counts as ground-breaking innovation for the retail sale.
The broad portfolio and the high vertical range of manufacture of the Strautmann Group enable Strautmann Umwelttechnik to use synergiesand react flexibly to the market and develop innovatively.
Next to the vertical balers who can create bales from 30 to 600 kg the company did develop the semi-automatical baler AutoLoadBaler. In 2012 the automatic feeding system did herald a new era for the retail sale. Thanks to the new machine, there is no need to fill the baler and wait until the end of the baling process when refilling. In total, the time saving for a market with approx. 60 tons of cardboard disposal per year lies at approx. 600 hours. Every day, up to 7500 bales are delivered from the Strautmann presses directly to the paper mills.
Due to its innovations Strautmann Umwelttechnik, is the technology leader in the field of balers for over 25 years.
