Pellenc ST America introduces its sorting technology, including the Mistral Compact, to the U.S. market.

September 6, 2019

Pellenc ST America, which hosted an open house at its Charlotte, North Carolina, headquarters earlier this year (pictured below), debuts the Mistral Compact.

Pellenc ST, based in Pertuis, France, has been designing and manufacturing robust, innovative, high-performance sorting equipment for the waste and recycling industries since 2001. The company has more than 1,600 machines installed worldwide. Its U.S. subsidiary, Pellenc ST America, based in Charlotte, North Carolina, was established in 2008 to provide reliable service and support to the U.S. market.

To better acquaint the U.S. market with its technology, Pellenc ST America hosted an open house May 30 at its offices in Charlotte. The company’s partners, clients and friends attended the event, which included lunch from a local food truck, two hours of technical sessions and an outing at Top Golf followed by dinner.

“The open house event allowed us to share with our industry partners and friends all the new innovations in our technology and equipment,” says Jean Henin, CEO of Pellenc ST.

The technical sessions featured four 30-minute modules on the Mistral+ optical sorting machine, project management, service and Harvin Augmented Reality (AR) technology. These sessions allowed Pellenc ST America to introduce its technology and team to attendees, helping them understand the value and level of service the company brings to the waste and recycling industries.

“We are constantly finding more ways to bring higher value to our customers through smarter Pellenc ST machines and services,” says Jeff Fountain, Pellenc’s business unit manager for America.

One such innovation is the company’s new Mistral Compact optical sorter, a compact unit that lends itself well to retrofits and large projects alike.

The main issues with plant retrofit projects are the difficulties associated with implementing new equipment. The Mistral Compact addresses this, having been specially designed to eliminate the headaches often associated with modernizing existing plants. Two possible configurations mean the Mistral Compact can be integrated easily into existing facilities, replacing old equipment regardless of the width, model or brand previously installed.

The Mistral Compact delivers the same versatile high-performance sorting of Pellenc’s Mistral+ range of optical sorters and is backed up by Pellenc ST America’s outstanding technical support.
