Established since 1948, Copex was from the beginning specialized in the design and fabrication of hydraulic baling presses for the processing of demolition scrap materials.
The first scrap shear of 1000t was installed in 1975, followed by the first mobile scrap shear.
The scrap shears and baling presses became the core-products of Copex, we started developing new applications for our equipments in 1980.
To offer solutions for the increasing needs for treatment and conditioning on nuclear waste, we became a privileged partner for the actors of the nuclear industry. We adapted our standard machines to the specific requirements of the nuclear sector. Many Copex machines are being operated in AREVA, ANDRA, CERN or EURODIF.
In 1990, we became the first one to install baling presses for the compacting of household waste.
We now offers diversified products such as baling presses for metal packaging and more recently big capacity waste compacting stations for the multimodal transfer of household waste.
Today COPEX is one of the leading suppliers in the market for recycling equipments for the processing of all types of sold waste.
