Eighty years ago, disposal technology made its first appearance in the form of a baling press encased in a wooden crate, developed by a department of the then Hunkeler AG. This sector continued to develop positively. In the beginning, the new disposal technology was taken up by printing companies and for recycling, but soon spread to other market sectors. In 1990, a legal stand-alone company was founded with Hunkeler Systeme AG.

A management buy-out in 2005 formally freed Hunkeler Systeme AG from its earlier structures; since then, the company has operated in the world market as a completely independent enterprise.

Today we can confidently claim to be one of the world’s leading suppliers of disposal systems of any size, from a simple press to a complex large scale plant.
