Each year, it’s estimated that over 80,000,000 metric tons of scrap metals are processed in the U.S.  The industry generates billions annually for the U.S. economy, and recycling initiatives are a key part of efforts to reduce consumption and enhance the preservation of our natural resources.

Cordele, GA – In response to the continued growth in customer demand for their machinery, Harris, a division of Avis Industrial, has announced the dramatic expansion of the company’s advanced machine shop at its Cordele, GA manufacturing complex.

The expansion encompasses the construction of a new machine building, adjacent to the current machine shop, with over 14,000 square feet of new production and training space. The expanded capacity will be home to CNC machining centers for turning, milling, drilling, and shaping, will provide a state-of-the-art environment for the machinists plying their trade, and allow for central meeting and training space for the nearly 150 employees on the Cordele campus.

“Harris is the only supplier in the industry that manufactures their units “from the steel up” and performs all of that work in the U.S.” says D.J. Van Deusen, president of Harris. “Our renowned design and construction builds machines that operate over generations and the hydraulics systems at the heart of our machines are what make them fast, productive and efficient. We are thrilled to provide an upgraded environment for our skilled machinists, excited about the efficiency gains the new layout will provide, and proud to be making this substantial investment at home in Cordele and Crisp County, Georgia”

Harris’ Cordele manufacturing complex is a 130-year-old, 22-acre facility served by direct rail access. It encompasses facilities for fabricating, machining, cylinder manufacturing, and assembly of Harris’ largest balers and shears as well as the Harris TransPak units.

Metso Outotec Corporation's press release on December 31, 2021 at 09:00 am EET

Metso Outotec has signed an agreement to divest its Metal Recycling business line to an

affiliate of Mimir, an investment company based in Stockholm, Sweden. The closing of the

transaction is expected to take place during the first half of 2022. The parties have decided not

to disclose the value of the transaction. The divestment will not have a material impact on Metso Outotec’s financial results.

Metso Outotec announced in October 2020 that it intends to divest its recycling businesses,

which have since been reported as part of discontinued operations in Metso Outotec’s financial

statements. The divestment of the Waste Recycling business has already been completed.

“We are delighted that going forward, the Metal Recycling business will continue to implement

its strategy together with the new owner Mimir. As an established standalone company, its full

focus will be on the metal recycling markets and customers,” says Piia Karhu, Senior Vice

President, Business Development and Metal Recycling business line at Metso Outotec.

“This is a great opportunity for Metal Recycling to take the next step in our development”, says

Ioannis Giouvanitskas, Vice President of Metso Outotec Metal Recycling. “Mimir has the

resources to quickly expand our leading market position and to be able to provide our products

and services to a growing, global customer base”, he continues.

”We warmly welcome Metso Outotec Metal Recycling to Mimir and look forward to driving

growth for this attractive business together with its employees. Metso Outotec Metal Recycling

is a typical Mimir investment, being carved-out from a large corporation with leading technology and engineering expertise that positions it among the premium brands in its markets,” says Joakim Notö, Managing Partner and Group Chairman at Mimir Invest.

The Metal Recycling business sold to Mimir includes the brands Lindemann and Texas

Shredder. The business will change name in conjunction with the divestment and operate

globally under the Lindemann brand, with headquarters in Düsseldorf, Germany. Its current

approximately 160 employees will transfer to the new company in connection with the

transaction. The net sales of the business totaled EUR 77 million in 2020.

Mimir is a global investment firm acquiring non-core business units of large corporations as well as private companies that need operationally oriented ownership. The Mimir group has

operations in 20 countries world-wide, employing 1 200 employees. (
