There’s been a significant merger in the waste industry confirmed with Superior Pak and FAUN Group tying the knot.

The two businesses, both major players in the waste handling equipment game, confirmed the joint venture this week.

The FAUN Group, which has a history dating back to 1845, is owned by the KIRCHHOFF Group and is well-known for its vehicles and equipment, particularly its road sweepers.

The German manufacturer has also made big steps in fuel cell and electric drive technology in recent times too.

While the Brisbane-based Superior Pak has made its name working in collaboration with local truck brands such as Iveco and Isuzu on waste collection and compacter trucks.

Effective from next month, the deal sees the existing Superior Pak executive management team remain unchanged, with Superior Pak also taking over the FAUN distribution rights previously held by Wastech.

“We are very pleased to welcome Superior Pak in our Group. It is an honour for us to work closely together and to strengthen our business. All parties can learn from each other and we provide our customers with the best trucks and after sales services.” – Patrick Hermanspann, CEO FAUN Group

Rob Wrigley, Superior Pak managing director said the move will provide further depth to the company’s business and product range.

“New technologies for vehicle drive systems combined with the expertise of both partners in the production of class leading waste disposal and collection equipment will reinforce the strong future ahead for Australian manufacturing and the abilities of our workforce.”
