GGR Technologies P/L
GGR Technologies P/L, BottleCrusher is the market leader in glass bottle crushing technology. We design, manufacture and supply a range of patented on-site glass bottle crushing machines to assist venues all over the world with glass waste management, glass recycling and glass volume reduction. Our machines allow you to reclaim valuable space, minimise noise pollution and reduce occupational health and safety risks. GGR Technologies we believe that there is a better more responsible way of operating. This thinking is responsible for positioning BottleCrusher as the leader in bottle crushing technology, and delivering the most sophisticated and safe glass bottle crushing machines to the hospitality industry.
GGR Technologies was launched in 2003 in Perth, Western Australia, by Dr Harrie Hofstede, who at the time identified the issues that constrained glass recycling. Armed with a PHD in Waste Management, Dr Hofstede set out to find a solution.
Dr Hofstede realised that two main issues hindered glass recycling. The first was the high cost associated with transporting glass, which in an unprocessed state has a large volume and low value.
The second was the absence of any commercial solutions which enabled venue operators to store waste glass so it could be collected for recycling. This was due to the relatively large area required by venues to store uncrushed waste glass.
Dr Hofstede recognised that by safely reducing the volume of waste glass on site, transport costs would be lowered and venues would be able to reclaim valuable area previously designated to storing waste glass. In 2003, GGR Technologies, under the guidance of Dr Hofstede, launched the Compact Bar BottleCrusher machine which revolutionised waste glass management in bars. It was a machine designed to fit behind the bar, and safely and quietly reduce the volume of waste glass by up to 75%.
Two years later, Dr Hofstede and GGR Technologies added the SpaceSaver BottleCrusher to the range in response to demand from venues for a model that could be situated in a designated waste area and process larger volumes of glass.
Since then, the GGR team has identified and met the need for a machine that services higher volume venues by lifting, tipping and crushing full bins of empty bottles almost automatically. This is how the BottleMaster came into circulation. Since then, GGR technologies have supplied bottle crushing machines to casino’s, leading chain hotels, yachts, bars, restaurants and nightclubs all over the world.
Venue owners constructing new facilities are often incredibly surprised when they discover the labour and space savings they can achieve by adopting simple processes and technology.
As an added benefit, through the implementation of the BottleCrusher technology, our customers have minimised occupational health and safety risks and achieved more sustainable and environmentally friendly outcomes to managing their glass waste.Looking for a cost effective solution that will save you money?
