Our Core Competence is....

As an independent, family owned, midsize enterprise our roots go back to the fifties when the former state owned 'SeRo'-entities were founded in Thuringia.

'FAIR recycling' of waste from manufacturing plants, administrations, retail, hospitals or gastronomy is our job. We serve our customers from four recycling plants located between Bad Langensalza and Weimar and co-operate with many partners on a nation- and even world wide level.

'FAIRrecycling' - that word contains the basic message of our philosophy. The fair dealing with our customers and staff  is an essential of our philosophy.

Our aim is to shape our services along the needs of our customers, to offer them for a comprehensible price that mirrors the value of the service adequately.

It is important for us to offer a convenient working atmosphere to our staff, which encourages and supports them to comply with the daily requirements of our customers. We are no 'hire-and-fire' company. Long lasting working periods exceeding up to twenty years are a common standard in our company.

At the same time all what we do is an important contribution to the protection of resources and environment. The recycling of waste helps  to feed the hunger for resources of a constantly growing world population.

Our field of action is not limited to Thuringen or Germany - our activities sprawl over many countries in the world, where we buy or sell commodities or where we employ our know how in order to spread the recycling idea.

Our 'Captain Sero' (transl. secondary rawmaterial) is serving on a vessel that is on cruise with changing staff since 1950.

Right after the launch under the slogan 'recollecting recyclables according to the plan and using them smartly in the industry' his ship started cruising for the following 40 years in the smooth waters of socialist state-directed economy. The name f the vessel was 'VEB Altstoffhandel' (transl.: peoples owned company Waste Material Trade).

The state- imposed task to recollect recyclables was fullfilled accordingly to the plan and a widespread network of collecting points for recyclables was developed. Every Thuringian citizen had directly or indirectly contact to the predecessor of Thuringen Recycling GmbH. Most of them kept positive memories as it was very common in those times for kids to upgrade their pocket money buy collecting and selling recyclables.

The dynamic groth of the entity in those times was carried out at the cost of private structures that were more and more repressed in the socialist system of the GDR. Only a very small number of private owned companies could survive the forty years of socialism in the GDR.

On june 21st the former 'peoples owned company' was privatized. Shortly before that it was renamed to 'Thuringen Recycling Erfurt  GmbH'. The new owners (Michael Dresel and Gunter Munster) were two entrepreneurs with a lot of experience in the field of waste management and recycling.
With the political and economical change came a big upheaval for the citizens of east Germany. The 'ship' had to be pulled on the dry-dock in order to prepare it for the 'open sea'. In that time the company had a turnover of only 4.1 Mio German Mark and a operative loss of 1.5 Mio German Mark employing 230 people.

It was due to the courage and cleverness of the new owners and directors of the company that takeover and continuation of the firm became a success.
Ever since the vessel is sailing on a safe course having earned recognition in the German and international recycling markets.

We are proud about the achieved success without being too high spirited resting on our yesterdays laurels.

Talking about history it is always a good opportunity for an outlook to the future. Expansion and continuation of our company goes together with a high customer orientation and cost efficiency, the ability to take part in strategic co-operations and development of foreign markets.
