Kadant expands PAAL business into North America

Westford, MA-based Kadant, Inc. has appointed Bulk Handling Systems (BHS) as the exclusive distributor of its high-performance balers to material recycling facilities in the US and Canada. Through BHS, Kadant has been awarded its first US order for a channel baler to be installed at the regional waste recovery facility in Monterey, CA.

Kadant says the appointment of Eugene, OR-based BHS represents another important step in Kadant’s strategy to drive revenue synergies following its April 2016 acquisition of PAAL Group, a European manufacturer of horizontal balers used to process both recyclable materials, including paper and plastics, and non-recyclable materials such as treated household/commercial waste and agricultural products.

Kadant will debut its balers in the US market at the Waste Expo 2017 in New Orleans, May 9-11, 2017.
