Our family venture for the manufacture of machines and plants for the wood processing industry, was founded in 1948 in Spittal an der Drau by Josef Lindner. Twenty years later the machine factory Lindner began manufacturing size reduction machines. Wood was still the main material for processing. Already in the 80`s one recognized the large potential within the range of reprocessing of waste and thus it was decided to specialize in this range. The vision to develop the `ideal` shredding machine became reality and thus the Carinthian company Lindner-Recyclingtech GmbH is well known far beyond borders as the specialist in shredding technology and processing systems for waste.

Dedication, professionalism and motivation - the keys to achieve our company objectives!
Lindner-Recyclingtech GmbH looks back on the long tradition of an Austrian family business. The enterprise was founded in 1948 by Josef Lindner as a manufacturer of machinery and plants for the timber industry. The potential in the recycling of waste was recognized as early as the 1980’s and thus the first shredding machines were developed and produced for this range of application. 1999 irrevocably marks the beginning of the era of Lindner-Recyclingtech GmbH.

Today, the successful enterprise is directed and managed in third generation by Manuel Lindner, a graduate engineer. These past years were shaped by innovation, growth and enthusiasm of customers all over the world.

The core competence of Lindner-Recyclingtech GmbH is shredding technology – everything from development, construction, production and distribution, to comprehensive customer service is from one source. With us, almost anything can be shredded: waste for thermal and resource recovery, paper, synthetics, rubber, wood, textiles and much more. Lindner-Recyclingtech has become THE specialist for shredders and compact reduction systems for alternative fuels from domestic, industrial and commercial waste. More than 200 staff, five incorporated companies as well as a worldwide network for distribution and service enables us to react with great flexibility to changing customer preferences and market requirements. Every year, approximately 200 single shaft shredders and plant components like conveying and separation technology leave our Austrian production plants, 93% of them for export.

Our versatile range of products consists of primary, secondary and universal shredders as well as compact systems for processing of alternative fuels in modular design with groundbreaking and reliable technology – they create the crucial pre-conditions so that customer-specific requirements can be met competently by Lindner-Recyclingtech.

As an owner managed, independent family business, we are a strong and reliable partner for our customers, suppliers and staff.
