Orwak is a pioneer in compaction and baling. Since 1971, Orwak has been a world leader in compaction and baling solutions for solid waste materials at the source. Since 1984, Orwak North America has brought these innovations to companies based in the Americas: The United States of America, Canada, Central America and South America.
A History of Leadership in North America
Back in the early 1980's, Orwak North America was known as Orwak USA. At its helm was Anders Carlegren. Anders experienced early success in the US thanks to the Orwak 5030 trash compactor. The 5030 was readily accepted by major fast food companies, restaurants and hotels throughout the country, while the Orwak 8010 was becoming known as the fastest down-stroke baler in the world with a cycle time of just 10 seconds!
Made in Sweden
Orwak AB, the parent company for Orwak North America is located in Svetsaregatan, Sweden. Throughout its history, Orwak AB has spearheaded innovative new designs for its compactors and balers while maintaining only the highest standards in manufacturing.
Orwak is certified according to ISO 9001 (quality management), 14001 (environmental management) and ISO 3834 - a special standard for welding not typically seen in baler manufacturing. ISO 3834 is typically used in the car industry, construction industry and in manufacturing industries that produce heavy steel construction products.
Orwak AB continues to invest in machine technology through advances in robotics and communications to remain a world leader. With the launch of Orwak Connect, a modem-based communication service, Orwak has taken waste management to another level. Orwak Connect enables balers to notify supervisors when it needs maintenance or is full. Supervisors can monitor fleets of balers this way and gather bale statistics for a specific period of time. Later this year, Orwak will offer a built-in scale for collecting and viewing bale weight data in the portal.
As of November 2016, Orwak North America is now headquartered in Morrisville, North Carolina. At its helm is J Mark Lanning. Mark has a long history of leading successful sales teams in North America, with his most recent role as Senior Vice President of Sales for Tomra North America and Tomra Compaction Systems. Mark will be overseeing all North American operations as President.
