Martin Weiss, a long-time employee of Austria-based sorting technology provider Redwave, has been named as the new chief operating officer of Atlanta-based Redwave Solutions US LLC. Weiss has been serving as Redwave’s global sales manager and expert for metal recycling.
Redwave, established in Austria in 2004, says it “quickly became apparent that there was great potential for Redwave sensor-based sorting machines in America.”
Stefan Steiner has managed the operations of Redwave Solutions US on an interim basis “and has since not only strengthened the American location but has also created a reliable and motivated team,” the company states.
After four and a half years in the United States, Steiner will take on new responsibilities at the company’s Austrian headquarters, involving expanding international business areas and promoting the firm’s service and support area. “I am very honored by this vote of confidence from the management, and I will put my full commitment into achieving our goals,” Steiner says of his new role.
As of July 1, Weiss has become chief operating officer of the U.S. subsidiary. “In my past responsibilities at Redwave, I was working in different departments,” says Weiss. “This versatile knowledge gives me confidence for this honorable new position. I am excited and look forward to adding more value to the team and appreciate the trust for this opportunity from the management.”
Weiss says he is ready to take over a team that includes administration, sales and marketing and a factory-trained technical staff responsible for service and maintenance that has more than 80 years of combined experience in the field of electromechanical engineering and installation monitoring.
In the metal recycling market, Redwave says more than 100 of its XRF/C machines have been sold. That unit, the company says, can be used in other applications including glass sorting, plastics sorting, paper sorting, mixed waste sorting and the processing of RDF.
