From Humble Beginnings

Denmark, 1992. A Supermarket Manager named Kristian Skannerup had become increasingly frustrated that cardboard and plastic waste was cluttering his workspace. He set about designing a machine that would resolve this issue.

Movin' On Up Now

Within 2 years, demand for the solution rocketed as businesses around the world sought to optimize their workspace with a simple, low-energy solution. Large mill-size balers became increasingly unpopular in favour of smaller, quieter machines.

Evolution & Adaption

Mil-tek's growth has been as much a product of its responsiveness, with the original offering expanded to a range of 15+ different types of balers, waste compactors, polystyrene compactors, can crushers, hydraulic presses and accessories.

Environmental Consciousness 

Mil-tek continues to go from strength to strength. Fresh from opening newest location in Nebraska, Mil-tek reaffirmed their commitment to producing environmentally friendly balers and compactors for an environmentally conscious market.
