Bulk Handling Systems (BHS) and Kadant Inc. reached an agreement appointing BHS as the exclusive distributor of Kadant PAAL’s high-performance balers to material recovery facilities (MRFs) in the United States and Canada.
Founded in 1854 in Germany, Kadant PAAL manufactures channel balers used to process both recyclable materials, including paper and plastics, and non-recyclable materials, such as treated household/commercial waste and agricultural products.
“We’ve long known PAAL to produce an unrivaled channel baler, and when you combine the product with Kadant PAAL’s commitment to the North American market, this partnership makes a lot of sense for BHS and our customers,” BHS CEO Steve Miller said in a statement. “PAAL balers fill a significant gap in the market and align perfectly with the quality and performance that BHS systems and equipment are known for. Finally our US and Canadian customers have access to the quality and performance they demand, the service and support they deserve, and at a price point that actually makes sense.”
“We are pleased to be entering this segment of the North American recycling market with BHS, a leader in the design and manufacture of large scale sorting systems. Our high quality, German-engineered balers are uniquely aligned with BHS’ commitment to performance and quality,” Kadant President and CEO Jonathan Painter said in a statement.
BHS will install the first PAAL Konti baler in the U.S. at the Monterey (Calif.) Regional Waste Management District’s new 70 ton per hour multi-line MRF. Currently under construction by BHS, the system is set to open later this year.
