Big News – We can now supply automatic and semi automatic horizontal balers!

Orwak has recently strengthened its machine offering by the acquisition of Orca Group – a leading French supplier of horizontal balers, vertical balers and compactors

Orca Group is the French market leading manufacturer and distributor of high quality horizontal balers, vertical balers and compactors under the brands Sacria, Galicier and Pressor. The group has more than 175 employees, including a global salesforce of 15 people, and it operates an efficient after-sales and service network with more than 70 technicians. Sacria, the first Orca Group company, was founded in 1964.

“The product range from Orca Group and the vertical balers from Orwak are a strong combination and we can now offer the market a complete product range of internally produced waste compaction equipment”, says Tomas Johansson, Sales & Marketing Director at Orwak Head Office in Sweden.

“On visiting the factory in France, it was impressive to see first-hand the quality and workmanship that goes in to each and every machine. The wealth of experience and knowledge from the drawing office to the physical machine build is overwhelming.

With over 40 years of market experience Sacria Industries have produced over 35 000 machines with customers including Veolia, Suez and Ikea.

Adaptability is one of the specialities, the research department designs with the needs of the customer in mind. Certified by the 2000 version of the ISO 9001 standard, we are committed to strict quality standards.” says Kerrie Barrow, Sales Director at Orwak Easi UK.
“With Orwak’s reputation in the UK as the trusted supplier of waste handling equipment over more than 40 years, we are very excited about now being able to offer even more to our customers. You can rely on Orwak to provide the RIGHT SOLUTION, QUALITY EQUIPMENT and FIRST CLASS SERVICE.

As expected when offering this type of equipment, we will carry out a complete survey of your site and offer you APPROPRIATE SOLUTIONS. Full technical drawings and full costing breakdown will be provided, enabling you to make an informed decision.”
