Velbert, Germany-based LIG GmbH has announced that, as of June this year, Doppstadt Systemtechnik GmbH (DSG) will be renamed Allreco GmbH as a way for the stationary recycling equipment made by that LIG business unit to “be established more strongly as an independent brand.”
The company says, after the change to Allreco, the business unit’s focus will continue to be on “the development of stationary recycling solutions.” DSG, soon to be Allreco, is one of three Doppstadt Beteiligungs GmbH business units, along with diversified equipment producer Doppstadt Calbe and machine fabricator Doppstadt Umwelttechnik.
Henning Strunz, managing director of DSG, says the name Doppstadt is “firmly established” in the recycling market. “However,” he adds, “the uniform naming also has its disadvantages. Some of our prospective and existing customers do not perceive DSG as an independent brand.”
The company indicates equipment developed by the emerging Allreco business unit will be made either by Doppstadt Umwelttechnik or by an Allreco “selected partner company.” Allreco will seek a global presence with a “focus on the markets in Europe, Japan, Korea and Singapore,” adds the firm.
On its website, Doppstadt lists the processing of wood scrap, mixed C&D materials and mixed recyclables, plus the production of refuse-derived fuel (RDF), as its leading market sectors and applications.
Says Strunz, “The strategic reorganization should help our customers to recognize Allreco as an independent brand with a focus on the development of recycling solutions for stationary use. Allreco is the clever combination of our many years of experience as a traditional family-owned company and the pioneering idea of breaking new ground.”
