Never waste an opportunity - Komptech reveals new brand identity

We are celebrating our 30th anniversary this year. That got us thinking: Are we still the same as we have been 10, 20, or even 30 years ago?


Partners for biodegradable and mixed waste

The answer is yes and no. We are and will remain the leading technology and expert partner for mechanical and biological waste recycling, as well as treatment of woody biomass. More than 4,000 customers in over 80 countries on all continents are supplied with our solutions. Their satisfaction and the pursuit of a more sustainable environment have been the focus of our daily activities since our foundation and will not lose importance in the future.

From technology supplier to solution provider

But with around 30 years of experience in the field of waste treatment, we have become much more than just a technology supplier. We have the expertise to offer our customers complete solutions – which, in addition to innovation machines, also include comprehensive services as well as rental and purchase options – and show them how they can turn waste into value. We thereby continue helping their companies not only to grow even stronger but also to provide a sustainable contribution to protecting the environment.

This repositioning is also visually expressed throughout the whole design, whereby optimizing the brand for digital usage was the main focus. Based on the graphic development of the logo, the font, and the color concept, our pioneering role in the field of digitalization should become much more visible. Of course, this change also includes new brochures, an updated social media appearance, and a new website, that – with fresh colors, a modern design, and strong stories – will complement the information about which expertise customers can expect from us.


Where there is waste, there is opportunity

“We see waste as an opportunity because it is a resource in the wrong place. With our solutions, we support our customers in making the most of these opportunities while improving the environment,” says Heinz Leitner, CEO der Komptech GmbH.

Our innovative machines and systems turn this idea into a reality because they process materials in such a way that the majority of them can be processed for recycling. With our products, we also start a step above the “recycle” step in the waste hierarchy – namely with “reuse” and “repair”. Our service portfolio and the used and rental machines we offer significantly increase the life cycle of the machines and ensure optimal use of resources. Through these measures, the currently mostly linear material economy is being transformed into a circular economy and our customers can make even better and more sustainable use of waste recycling. That is not just good for us, but also for the environment.

“We see waste as an opportunity because it is a resource in the wrong place. With our solutions, we support our customers in making the most of these opportunities while improving the environment.”

How we create value for you

On the one hand, we as solution provider offer our customers many options for setting up and operating systems. Additionally, with our support, the customer is able to make better and more sustainable use of business opportunities. We want to show them how they can flexibly prepare for change, minimize their risks, and promote growth. We want to kindle the entrepreneurial spirit of our customers and encourage them to use the opportunities to their own benefit.

On the other hand, there is a bigger picture, namely our commitment to together make a positive contribution to our environment, for a better future. This is part of our DNA, because, as Josef Heissenberger said: “Someday our grandchildren will ask us what we did with their future. We’re working on intelligent answers.”
