Wheelabrator Group is a global player and is widely recognised as the market leader in surface preparation technology. It has never lost sight of its desire to be regarded as the industry’s thought leader, a philosophy and commitment that has consistently underpinned the business for over 100 years.
Evidence of innovation, creativity and engineering excellence can be found in every corner of the business, day after day. Wheelabrator Group is driven by the needs of its customers who constantly require stronger, faster, more efficient and cost effective solutions, just the sort of challenges that its team of experts thrive on.
At the vanguard of new thinking are the Wheelabrator Group Technology Centres that drive the research and development programme.Wheelabrator Technology Centres are centres of excellence. It is in these instutions where all the equipment is designed. Teams of engineers work on projects to custom-design machines for each customer's specific needs. Each team has it's area of specialisation, but it is not uncommon for Project Engineers to work with other Technology Centres to discover new possibilities and developments and to share knowledge.
We have welcomed into the group the Zurich Technology Centre, which was previously known as DISA. The shotblasting division of DISA was rebranded Wheelabrator in 2009. Today, all DISA's shotblast range is still available - unchanged - just with a Wheelabrator nameplate, and the new Zurich Technology Centre works with our other TC's to share knowledge and experience in order to develop new products and to find the best solution for each customer.
