Recycling is a relatively young issue in Great Britain - 20 years ago, the country’s recycling rate was almost zero. But the awareness has radically changed, and the Sutco UK seized its opportunity at the right time. To date, the company Sutco has constructed 23 recycling plants which are already in operation in the United Kingdom.
In 2001 the joint venture OKLM Recycling Technology Ltd. was founded. With its 50% of participation in the L&M Entsorgungs-Systeme GmbH and 50% of participation in O.Kay Engineering Services Ltd., a British company, OKLM has successfully and profitably operated over seven years in the United Kingdom.
Based on the positive assessment of the British market and a mutual agreement, the takeover by L&M took place at the beginning of 2011. In a next step the Sutco RecyclingTechnik GmbH acquired the shares of L&M. At the same time OKLM was renamed Sutco UK. To this day, the Sutco UK has been a 100% affiliate of Sutco RecyclingTechnik GmbH.
