Terex Recycling Systems and ZenRobotics Working Hand-In-Hand

Terex Recycling Systems (TRS)—manufacturer of modular recycling products—and ZenRobotics—global leader in smart robotic recycling have expanded their sales team with several new appointments to represent all of Europe, North America, the Middle East, and Australasia. This team is trained to represent both TRS and ZenRobotics to offer customers a complete solution for turning waste into clean, raw materials.

Both businesses are part of Terex, a global manufacturer of aerial work platforms and materials processing machinery. Terex Recycling Systems was established in 2021 to specialise in the design and build of stationary and modular recycling systems, while ZenRobotics was acquired by Terex in 2022 to further enhance environmental expertise across its portfolio and contribute towards making a circular economy more possible. 

“Working together, Terex Recycling Systems and ZenRobotics integrate cutting-edge AI technology into modular sorting solutions that are tailored specific to customer’s needs,” says Kenny Hull, Product & Commercial Manager of Terex Recycling Systems. “Our sales team is trained up on both businesses—this joint up approach means that their support and product knowledge can be spread across existing and new customers for both brands, expanding our ability to offer end-to-end recycling solutions.”

Marcel Vallen – Sales Manager, TRS and ZenRobotics has almost 40 years’ experience in the environmental industries. Marcel started his career by running the day-to-day business for several recycling facilities, after which he focused on designing, building, and selling new recycling facilities across Europe and North America. With his environmental engineering background, he has a deep understanding in current, cutting edge, recycling needs. Marcel now represents North America for both TRS and ZenRobotics.

Rainer Rehn – Sales Manager, TRS and ZenRobotics has more than 30 years’ experience in the environmental industry. Starting out his career with an entrepreneurial spirt, Rainer designed and delivered recycling systems, such as RDF and SRF production systems, special recycling systems and other related material handling processes. After this, Rainer spent 10 years working at BMH, one of the biggest solid fuel handling system suppliers in the world, during which he worked on the development and distribution of the Tyrannosaurus shredders and BMH recycling systems. Reiner has worked for ZenRobotics since 2008, developing the market for robotic recycling robots that are powered by artificial intelligence, and now covers Scandinavia and Central Europe for both TRS and ZenRobotics.
Michael McMenamin – Regional Sales Manager for TRS and ZenRobotics, has over 15 years’ experience in the recycling equipment sector.
