Zimmer America, Spartanburg, S.C., and Stadler, based in Altshausen, Germany, have partnered to form Stadler America LLC, based at Zimmer America’s corporate headquarters.

Zimmer America is a supplier of machinery and sorting systems for the textile, recycling, industrial cleaning and solar power industries. Stadler is a manufacturer of sorting systems for the waste and recycling industry.

"To partner with Zimmer America is the best thing we could have done to get a strong foothold in the American marketplace,” says Gerben Nijland, vice president of sales for North America. “We can now offer complete and local engineering and sourcing for our customers who are interested in complete Stadler MRF (material recovery facility) or PRF (packaging recovery facility) solutions, commingled recycling lines and all other Stadler products for the waste recycling industry."

Nijland and his family relocated to Spartanburg from Germany last November.

Stadler is a worldwide supplier with a manufacturing base in Germany and installations of turn-key waste and recycling systems in many countries. The company also manufactures ballistic separation systems and can provide individual solutions for existing MRFs.

“We are proud to have formed this partnership with Stadler in Germany, a very strong and stable company in existence since 1791 and a world leader in waste recycling solutions,” says Roland Zimmer, CEO of Zimmer America and Stadler America. “This will allow us to expand our activities in this industry and become a major player in the North American marketplace.”

Stadler America will exhibit at Booth No. 2665 at the upcoming WasteExpo set for May 20-23, 2013, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.
