CP Manufacturing Celebrates 40 Years in the Recycling Industry

US-based company CP Manufacturing celebrates 40 years of supplying equipment and processing solutions to the recycling industry.

According to the information, the family-owned business was born out of the scrap metals industry. Its sister company, IMS Recycling, was founded in 1954 by Charles M. Davis “who invented the world’s first aluminum can flattener in the early 1970’s”. After the aluminum can had become a common beverage container, CP Manufacturing was formed in 1977 in response to the growing demand for aluminum flatteners and densifiers. Since then, the company has developed dozens of patents and expanded its equipment and solutions portfolio as recycling and waste handling evolved, the enterprise gave account.

In the 1980’s and 1990’s, it was recognized that the trend was turning toward curbside recycling. As the United States and other countries worked to increase the effectiveness of recycling by making it easier for consumers to participate and more cost effective to implement, CP dedicated their research and development efforts to assist in this effort.

Since 2003, CP Manufacturing has acquired several other recycling equipment manufacturers and solution providers, including MSS, Inc., Krause Manufacturing and Advanced MRF. This family of companies – known as CP Group – was founded to provide one-stop-shop turn-key recycling systems for a variety of recycling and waste diversion operations.

As reported, CP has built over 450 material recovery facilities (MRFs) worldwide and continues to invest in R&D and automation technology to stay ahead of the changing material streams. The company still offers the original can densor product lines.
