UK-based industrial shredding specialist UNTHA UK has appointed a new managing director.
 
Marcus Brew takes the reins at the helm of the company, following a promotion from his previous role of sales director. Chris Oldfield, who has led the shredding business since 1997, will become chairman, concentrating on UNTHA UK’s over-arching strategic direction and other wider ambassadorial responsibilities in industry.
 
With a sales target of GBP10m for the new financial year, UNTHA says the promotion signifies the next stage in the company's organic development. The team has grown from a one-man business, to a company with 17 employees. Specialising in shredding solutions for the waste to energy and varied recycling markets, UNTHA now has more than 500 machines in operation throughout the UK and more than 9000, in total, worldwide. There is also a strong pipeline for further UK projects, UNTHA said in a statement.

 Commenting on his new role, mr Brew said: “Having been a part of the business for seven years, it is a pleasure to now lead the company through our next phase of growth. In truth, Chris and I won’t feel much of a change, as we’ve both been concentrating on these responsibilities for some time – the new titles are really just a formality.”
