The linear “extract, manufacture, consume, dispose” system on which our current economic model is based is running out of time, as natural resources become increasingly rare. But an economic model that can meet the need for sustainable growth does exist: the circular economy. The circular economy encourages recycling and significantly reduces consumption and waste of raw materials.
I made the choice to shift to this model by creating waste sorting and recycling turnkey solutions in 1995.
I am proud that AKTID has become a major player in this new economy.
And I am also proud that AKTID has become a modern company where everyone has room to grow and find fulfilment through a shared commitment.
The Payerne family, which traces its roots to the French and Italian Alps, has been in business for several generations.
Pierre-André joined the family business, manufacturing equipment for metal scrap processing, in 1995.
He developed a new branch of the company: mixed-waste processing facility engineering.
He went on to found his own company, AKTID, in 2005, to help the business achieve its full potential.
Since its creation, AKTID has seen constant growth and is now recognized as a major player in turnkey mixed-waste processing facility design and execution.
