Vecoplan was founded in 1969 in Bad Marienberg, Germany, as a manufacturer
of high quality wood chippers.
In the early 1980s, Vecoplan's focus turned to manufacturing innovative
machinery for recycling of various materials, inspiring the invention of the
first single-shaft rotary grinder the world ever saw. This innovation has
revolutionized the size reduction industry.
In 1989, a European patent was awarded to Vecoplan for the single-shaft
grinder and its unique "U-rotor." To this day, this rotor design continues
to be the most advanced cutting geometry for the universal size reduction of
a whole spectrum of waste materials.
In 1994, Vecoplan received its ISO 9001 certification. This is the highest
standard set for quality systems and confirms its dedication to innovative
product development, design engineering, high quality manufacturing and
quality control standards. Ensuring first-rate customer service has been,
and remains, a top priority.
In 2000, Vecoplan, the global leader in size reduction technologies,
combined forces with ReTech Industries, the American leader in single-shaft
rotary grinder technologies, to form Vecoplan, LLC - the undisputed global
leader in size reduction systems.
Today, Vecoplan has a substantial presence on every continent (with the
exception of Antarctica) and has evolved into the undisputed leader of
state-of-the-art size reduction and recycling systems with currently over
5,000 machines and systems operating around the world.
