Recy Systems AG, Munich, has announced that it has formed a joint venture with John Underwood as partner and CEO of Recy Systems North America LLC.

Currently headquartered in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Recy Systems North America’s headquarters will move to Toledo, Ohio, effective Jan. 1, 2018.

Underwood, who has more than 35 years’ experience providing software systems for the recycling industry, was a founder and former CEO of Systems Alternatives International LLC (SAI). Recy says Underwood grew SAI into a leading provider of custom software solutions for the commercial recycling industries in the U.S. and Canada. That company was acquired by Brady plc in November 2012.

“John brings over 35 years of experience in providing software systems for the recycling industry and we are excited to have someone of his caliber joining our team,” says Bernd Klarmann, CEO of Recy Systems AG.

Klarmann says Underwood’s leadership will “take Recy to the next level in providing and supporting Recy’s advanced software solutions to the recycling and steel companies in the North American marketplace.”

“Recy is a seasoned organization and the leading provider of proven software systems for our industry in Europe, also with large clients in North America,” Underwood says. “Expanding our North American footprint and building our team of professionals even further will position us to best serve both our existing and new customers alike.”

Recy Systems North America LLC will be responsible for marketing and supporting Recy’s products to prospective recycling clients throughout North America.
