The systems from EREMA are designed for a single purpose: to make plastics recycling as innovative and efficient as possible. We develop reliable machines and components that are customer and solution-oriented in every detail. For us, sustainable business goes hand-in-hand with profitable processing. Currently, over 6,500 of our systems are in use worldwide!

Seeing the customer's point of view

“Finding technical solutions for tasks is one thing. But solving them so that every wish is catered for and the greatest possible added value is created requires a change of perspective. The customer’s perspective is relevant, as are his wishes and goals. We take these as our guide.”

Christoph Stölnberger
Software Engineer, EREMA

“My colleagues and I have the good fortune to work in a branch that is helping to shape tomorrow’s world. For this reason we are all the more mindful of what we ourselves do.”

Markus Sanglhuber
Process Control Engineer, EREMA

Open and honest

“New accomplishments come about when you stay receptive. To encounters, to opinions. That’s what I experience every day with customers from all over the world. Respect for everyone is a principle we follow at EREMA both within the company and outside it.”
