SITA UK IS THE FIRST COMPANY IN EUROPE TO ORDER NEW DUAL MODE MOBILE SHREDDING VEHICLES
Leading recycling and resource management company, SITA UK, has become the first company in Europe to order Canadian designer and manufacturer Shred-Tech’s revolutionary dual mode mobile document shredding vehicles.
Launched at the NAID-Europe/PRISM Conference in London, the Shred-Tech MDX-1GT vehicle, distributed in the UK by Global Recycling Solutions Ltd, will enable SITA UK to provide mobile data destruction services in an ultra-high security mode, producing small particles that meet the standards of German Institute for Standardisation level DIN 3.
The new vehicles will also allow SITA UK to shred up to 1,150kg per hour in high security mode and up to 2,950 kg per hour in standard mode. This is 1.5 times faster than any other mobile shredder currently available in the UK. Security around people’s data will further improve thanks to Shred-Tech’s revolutionary secure bin opening system which does not require the bin to be manually opened before being tipped.
Jerome Mingaz, Head of Secure Shredding Services at SITA UK, said: “We understand that for our customers, security is the most important element of our service and we are delighted to be European pioneers in innovative solution. The new fleet of MDX-1GT vehicles will enhance our secure shredding offer and the dual mode shredding service will enable our customers to choose an adequate level of security depending on their business needs."
As well as being a member of the British Security Industry Association (BSIA), SITA UK is one of the country’s largest recycling companies. Operating from more than 300 sites across the UK, it recycles around 300,000 tonnes of paper each year.
Peter Banks, Managing Director of Shred-Tech UK, said: “We are delighted to accept the first order in Europe for the revolutionary and innovative shredding truck, the MDX-1, from SITA UK.
“There really is no other on-site shredding vehicle on the market to rival the MDX-1. Shred-Tech UK looks forward to a long and fruitful partnership with SITA UK.”
