UNTHA staff spotlight – Christopher Ramsauer

Kuchl, 24.10.2016

As Christopher Ramsauer approaches his ten-year anniversary with UNTHA, he shares some of his experiences of working throughout this shredding business…


  1. What does your role entail?

My job is very client-facing. When a customer has placed an order, I’m then responsible for preparing everything including project confirmation documentation, the parts list and schedule of activity. This ensures seamless communication and a high quality commissioning process.

I also manage projects from start to finish; test the waste shredders prior to handover; deliver operator training; and collaborate with our subsidiary companies worldwide, to offer support on their waste shredding projects too.


  1. How long have you been with the company? 

It will be my 10-year anniversary this December.


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

I’ve worked on some technically varied and challenging projects which, as a highly-skilled engineer, keeps my job very exciting.


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

I’ve visited some great locations throughout Europe. I don’t always get to see as many sights as I’d like, because we’re usually so busy on clients’ plants. However, I was particularly impressed with the landscape in Ireland.


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

It has to be the XR series – both the static and mobile waste shredders have set the global standard when it comes to high quality, profitable RDF, SRF and biomass production.


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

I have worked in a variety of roles at UNTHA, including machine design, development, product management and project engineering. It is great to have played a part in the evolution of these different departments.


  1. Describe UNTHA in three words:

An ‘innovative solutions provider’.


 And finally some more light-hearted questions:

  1. What’s your favourite food?

Authentic Italian Pasta. I could eat it every day!


  1. How do you relax on a weekend?

We have some amazing countryside close by in Kuchl, so I love spending my time in the mountains, climbing or biking, for example.


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

My girlfriend, of course!
