We keep finding ways to reduce the emissions of organic solvents from the paint process through production planning and choice of paint types.
We systematically work to reduce energy consumption, with a particular emphasis on ventilation, compressed air system, and heating system.
We aim to prevent accidents and malfunctions through treatment measures and systematic maintenance of facilities.

We actively involve our employees in the environmental issues of suppliers through constant information and education.

In today’s business every element of a company’s activity has an effect on the bottom line. Inefficient waste handling is time consuming, expensive and takes time and energy from what really matters. Helping you think small, is big business for you - and us.
Obtain big results with a small investment
A Bramidan baler is in fact a small investment compared to not compacting your waste. Loose waste is expensive in handling, collection and rental costs. But highly compacted bales of cardboard, plastic and other recyclable materials increase your income considerably.
Be efficient with small manpower efforts
When your staff compact waste at source, they save time, which can be used on more profitable activities. Less collection and transport of loose waste gives better internal logistics and greater productivity.
Get more room in small spaces
Compacting and baling gives more free space. You can store high-density bales in small places. At the same time your workflow is smoother and creates a safer environment for your staff.
Take small steps with large environmental benefits
When you compact waste for recycling, you promote better tidiness and hygiene at your workplace. But you also take steps towards less pollution of the natural environment.
Retail food businesses focus on sales areas, not warehouse space. Efficient waste handling in the goods reception area frees up space and time for selling.
Retail non-food businesses concentrate on customers and sales areas. Therefore an efficient waste handling in the goods reception area is essential to free up space and time for selling.
In today's business environment every element of a company's activity has an effect on the bottom line. Inefficient waste handling is time consuming, expensive and takes time and energy from what really matters.
Storage & Logistics
Warehouses and distribution centres are crucial crossroads where time is of the essence. Customers demand clockwork efficiency and there is no room for delays.
Hotel & Restaurants
Efficient waste handling improves your hotel or restaurant's daily efficiency and bottom line performance, and at the same time your guests' experience.
Marine & Offshore
When it comes to waste handling on ships and offshore platforms with more than 15 on board, you must comply with MARPOL Annex 5 and the IMO regulations.
The public sector comprises a broad range of services and institutions that supports our safety and well being. All these require fast and efficient waste handling.
The success of any waste handling or Facility Management contract depends on your ability to overvalue adding and reliable services at the best possible quality.
