S+S USA Subsidiary Relocated to Chicago
Expansion of North America business operations planned

Schönberg, Germany, Monday, November 28, 2011 — (Business Wire India) — S+S Inspection Inc, the US subsidiary of the Bavarian company S+S Separation and Sorting Technology GmbH, has relocated its headquarters from Niagara, New York, to Bartlett, Illinois, near Chicago. Bartlett is about 20 minutes from O’Hare International Airport in Chicago. Reloca-tion had become necessary because S+S intends to clearly expand its North America business operations. Comprehensive service for S+S customers in the USA mainly from the plastics, food, and recycling industries can thus be guaranteed.

Relocation to the new headquarters in Bartlett was organised by S+S North America General Manager Werner Fleps. In addition to an extended design and manufacturing department S+S in Bartlett now also features a Customer Service Center that is equipped with a sorting line for customers from the recycling industry, and a full range of metal and contaminant detectors – from inductive through to X-ray – for customers from the plastics and food industries.

The recycling demonstration line is equipped with proven sorting and separating systems and allows customers to perform realistic real-time tests. Machine settings are optimised to match customer-specific requirements. The Customer Service Center also guarantees the quickest possible delivery of new machines and spare parts to S+S customers, which is why machine and spare part stocks have been clearly increased.

Werner Fleps: “If S+S intends to grow in the USA, closeness to our customers is of decisive im-portance. This means that we need a facility with a local technical center. For US customers Germany simply is too far away for obtaining information about equipment and technologies. To further back up our growth we also have strengthened our US team with Tracey Hartje and Tony Rampino.”
