The new year begins with a change at BHS-Sonthofen: Daniel Zeiler will be taking over as the head of Recycling Technology division. He replaces Alfred Weber, who had successfully managed sales for the Recycling Technology division since 2007 and retired at the end of last year.

Hailing from western Germany, Mr. Zeiler, 48, has worked closely in the area of machinery and plant engineering for the recycling industry for over 20 years. He spent more than ten years in a management position with an international group in the scrap recycling industry and most recently he spent five years as head of sales at a plant manufacturer in the plastics recycling industry. Mr. Zeiler joined BHS-Sonthofen in September 2022 as Vice President of the company’s Recycling Technology division. “We have an exciting to-do list at BHS. We will continue to build up the new market segments, such as battery recycling, and at the same time grow with the established products, such as the processes for fine processing of metalliferous wastes. I see great potential in this intersection of proven products and new ideas – and at BHS, the necessary know-how and innovative spirit to develop new solutions for the industry,” Mr. Zeiler says with conviction. Managing Director Dennis Kemmann agrees: “We are delighted to welcome Mr. Zeiler into the fold – a colleague who will maintain continuity in the Recycling Technology division with great pleasure and commitment, while at the same time working with us to further expand the market position of BHS.”

Future-oriented strategy and new point of contact – with a sense of assured continuity

There have been several changes at BHS-Sonthofen in recent years. One of these changes included a focus on individual divisions, which are now even more closely aligned to the specific needs of the respective target group, and another involved a consistent expansion of the product and service portfolio. Alfred Weber, who is now taking his well-deserved retirement, has played an important role in this development from the very beginning. The Recycling division was still in its infancy when Mr. Weber started working in sales at BHS 20 years ago. At that time he was in the Construction Machinery and Special Mixing Technology sales area. Starting in 2007, he was put in charge of sales for this area. “The initial challenge was to build the sales network for recycling machinery and associated solutions from the ground up,” reports the skilled chemical worker and process engineer.

“Mr. Weber has been instrumental in making BHS a household name in the recycling industry today,” says Kemmann, summing up Mr. Weber’s career with the company, before adding: “We sincerely thank him for his work and commitment over the past 20 years.”
