What do our customers say about our after sales support and service staff?

“I have used Satake sorters in PET bottle flake recycling for the last 15 years with 3 different companies. I have witnessed the advancements in sorting technology for color and plastic type. The technology has changed but the people haven’t.

While most companies have depersonalized their sales and service organizations, Satake continues to have excellent people in all areas. Most are long term employees who not only know their products, but also know you and your industry.

Satake sales people don’t over sell the product. While they are always open to trying “new things”, they are very honest and conservative about their machines’ capabilities. Customer service technicians know the equipment and are readily available to assist in solving any problems that arise. Satake employees do what they say they will do when they say they will do it.

The machines are built to last. Like fine automobiles, they hold their value. Just try to find one on the used market!

I will continue to use and recommend Satake sorters to people in our industry.”
