Our Company

Our Story

Born From Innovation

What started in 1992 with the passion of a few pioneers, has evolved into North America’s leading waste technology supplier

Welcome to Komptech Americas.

The roots of our brand began in Austria, where Komptech became one of the first companies in Europe to introduce equipment built to process organic waste. It was here that the precise European engineering behind Komptech equipment took shape. And, although the first Komptech machine was sold in the United States in 1999, the Komptech brand wasn’t established in the West until 2007, when Komptech USA was founded.

At that time, with a dedicated subsidiary in North America, the Komptech brand began to gain a reputation throughout the waste recycling industry in the U.S. and Canada, as top quality, waste processing technology that is intuitive in design and engineered for reliability and efficiency. But our innovation is not held exclusively by the machinery we sell. It’s also in our very approach to how we work to ensure our customers’ success.

In 2011, Marcel Vallen was named CEO of Komptech USA, bringing with him a commitment to offering customers fully realized solutions to their waste processing challenges, not just selling them machines. Then in 2014, Komptech USA was purchased by M-L Holdings Company, and the company officially became Komptech Americas, LLC.

Today, with 13 dealership partners throughout the United States and Canada, Komptech Americas is the master distributor of Komptech equipment throughout the Western Hemisphere. With a specialized product portfolio that includes over 30 different types of machines covering all key processes in modern waste handling, a consultative guiding approach to solution development for customers, and full service after-sales support and parts, Komptech Americas has become a leading supplier to the recycling and waste processing industry.
