UNTHA staff spotlight

Kuchl, 18.11.2015

Name: Andreas Neureiter (Andy)

Job title: Sales Manager, Waste


  1. What does your role entail?

I spend my time travelling throughout Europe, meeting potential customers and finding solutions to help solve their waste and alternative fuel production problems. When an order is signed for one of our waste shredders, I also support the after sales team with any project queries, to ensure a smooth handover and maximum customer satisfaction.


  1. How long have you been with the company?

More than eight years. I have worked in various positions within our global company, including sales and technical roles for our wood shredding division, application engineering, product management for UNTHA's recycling shredders and, most recently, the development of project opportunities and machine sales within the renowned Business Unit Waste.


  1. What’s the best thing about your job?

Doing something I enjoy, that is beneficial for the environment, and that helps clients improve their eco credentials too. I am also lucky to sell great products, with the support of a very talented team.


  1. Of all the places you’ve visited during your time with UNTHA, which has been your favourite?

It would be unfair to name a favourite, as my travels with UNTHA have taken me to some memorable places through Europe and beyond. However, I particularly enjoy the visits to warmer locations!


  1. For you, which is UNTHA’s stand-out shredder?

Without a doubt, it has to be the XR waste shredder – the most flexible, energy efficient and profitable machine of its kind, worldwide. The global sales figures speak for themselves.


  1. What’s been your biggest work achievement, since joining UNTHA?

Playing a key role in the establishment and continued development of what is now a world renowned waste division within UNTHA.


  1. Describe UNTHA in three words:

Reliable, dedicated, innovative.


And finally some more light-hearted questions:


  1. What’s your favourite food?

Salzburger Kasnockn, a traditional Austrian dish of cheese dumplings.


  1. How do you relax on a weekend?

I have a young son, only 10 months old, so I try to spend as much time with this newest addition to my family, as I can.


  1. If you were stranded on a desert island, what is the one thing you couldn’t live without?

Providing I had my family with me, I’ve got to say an UNTHA shredder, to produce woodchips for heat!
