Born From Innovation

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 2014, Komptech USA was purchased by M-L Holdings Company, and the company officially became Komptech Americas, LLC. Today, with a combination of dealership partners and direct-to-customer sales and support throughout the United States and Canada, Komptech Americas is the master distributor and supplier of Komptech equipment throughout the Western Hemisphere.

Delivering customer value is our focus as we strive to be the waste industry’s technological leader through continual innovation. Komptech Americas is dedicated to helping customers solve waste processing challenges with comprehensive, world-class technology solutions.
