Japanese Demand for Impact's Recycling Solutions

We had the pleasure of welcoming our Japanese agents, Ryohshin, to the the UK last week.

Ryohshin Co Ltd, Impact’s sole trade partner for the Japanese market, recently visited the UK to check out the latest developments in our range of recycling solutions and discuss methods to promote a steady growth of the Impact brand in this market.


Impact and Ryohshin have a well established relationship, now in its fourth year of representing us in the recycling industry from their headquarters in Toyama, Japan.

Ryohshin offer a range of recycling facility design, supply and installation solutions and used the most recent visit to the UK to discuss our latest developments in air separation technologies. The Impact HCDA (High Capacity drum Airknife) and ZCU (Zigzag Classification Unit) technologies have recently been added to the product line up and with increasing interest from the Japanese market, which is primarily formed from C&D applications. Ryohshin’s CEO Kono Shacho was keen to visit our Leicester headquarters to discuss the technical aspects and view recent operational installations in the UK and understand how this technology can be integrated into the Japanese market.

A demonstration ZCU will now be prepared for Ryohshin to give interested Japanese clients the opportunity to 'try before they buy' as we offer here in the UK. This successful trial option has secured many orders for the Zigzag Classification Unit, which further separates a range of materials into heavy and light components, such as trommel fines, aggregates, plastics and many other materials to ensure operators are meeting their LOI targets and reducing waste ending in landfill.

The demonstration unit will be exhibited at the forthcoming
N-Expo recycling exhibition held in Tokyo on the 26-29th May 2015. The visit to the UK was a resounding success and further cements our partnership in the Japanese market.
