Kivreco has bolstered its team with a number of key appointments to support business growth in the UK and increasing demand for its recycling solutions in Europe and around the world.
Combining more than a quarter of a century of engineering know-how with the world's best in class technology brands, Kiverco designs, manufactures and delivers lasting recycling solutions for any waste stream anywhere - with more than 300 installations in the UK alone.
In recent years, the company has grown significantly as a result of increased demand for its recycling solutions in the UK combined with considerable international expansion in Europe, the Middle East, North America and Australasia.
New staffers include Con Gallagher who has become the company’s Global Head of Sales, André Matula, who has been appointed Key Account Manager/Business Development and Angela Madden who has taken up the newly created role of Head of Marketing & PR.
The company, renowned for its robust static recycling solutions, has also brought to market its modular plant range which is sold through its growing dealer network to meet demand.
This range of products can be operated as single units or when combined together provide an alternative to traditional ways of processing waste. It provides for easy set up within hours, restricted footprints and rapid relocation without the need for cranes with all the benefits of a high-performance static plant.
Kiverco’s modular range can process municipal solid waste (MSW) as well as construction and demolition (C&D), commercial and industrial (C&I) or dry mixed recyclables (DMR) and includes material feed, screening, air, magnetic and manual sorting equipment.
Paul Carolan, General Manager, said that company success was down to its people: “Our greatest asset is our people. We are fortunate to have a family of people who are expert in their fields who work together to do the right thing for each other, our customers, partners and ultimately our business. With that in mind I welcome Con, André and Angela and look forward to working with them as we enter the next phase of the Kiverco story.”

He also has a history of establishing International dealer networks in the sector and held a number of senior sales and marketing roles.

Kiverco designs it right so its solutions are flexible and deliver results today with the technology needed for tomorrow as waste streams change and purity legislation evolves. Kiverco solutions are built to optimise performance and ensure lifetime value of plants is maximised. Kiverco never compromises on quality.”
