ATLANTA — German recycling equipment maker Zerma GmbH now is selling direct in the United States.
Peter Litgen, national sales manager, said Zerma had sold its granulators and shredders through a private label agreement with auxiliary equipment company ACS Group for the past 10 years. NPE 2015 marked the launch of Zerma as a separate company in the United States, he said.
Zerma has been manufacturing its equipment in Shanghai since 1999.
Litgen said the Zerma facility in Crystal Lake, Ill., has a test laboratory with 16 pieces of the company's equipment.
Zerma exhibited at the Society of Plastics Engineers Thermoforming Conference at the booth of its distributor, Plastics Machinery Group of Solon, Ohio.
