Tomra Sorting Inc., a manufacturer of sensor-based sorting equipment for the recycling and waste management industry, is growing its footprint in North America with the opening of a new office in Charlotte, N.C.
The 3,000-square-foot office serves as the company's waste and metals recycling headquarters for customers operating in North, Central and South America. It can accommodate up to 20 employees, with additional room to grow. The company declined to say how much it had invested into the office.
The plastics waste, specifically, is recovered from materials recovery facilities and recycled plastics that are further processed into final products such as plastic flakes, according to company spokesman Rick Zettler.
Tomra Sorting's Charlotte office also houses its North American sales team and centralizes its recycling project management, inside sales, customer service and field service employees. The company's other sales and service teams in Mexico, Latin America and Brazil will also rely on the Charlotte office to streamline sales and customer support efforts.
The Charlotte location joins Tomra's other offices in West Sacramento, Calif.; Shelton, Conn.; and Englewood, Colo., where it employs more than 900 people combined.
