In 2013, for the 3rd year in succession, the Dicom Sales and Service teams managed to set a new sales record, beating the previous record by more than 12%. Furthermore, the 2013 sales level is more than a third higher than the average over the last 5 years with strong performance being achieved in all sectors :

1. Sales of the Paal fully automatic baler range have continued to grow, largely as a result of the dominant position held by the DOKON/HTR machines for baling RDF.
2. Sales of Dicom products benefitted from a diversified customer base plus a number of important improvements which resulted in an even better value-for-money offering.
3. Service and spare parts revenues grew by more than 20% in 2013. The market leading service cover offered by Dicom is a major driver behind the growth in machine sales and, in return, the growth in machine sales generates further service revenue. As such, it’s a win win situation.

The challenge now is to beat the record again in 2014. Given the high opening order backlog, plus the very healthy sales pipeline combined with some exciting new product ranges set to be launched, the 2013 sales record may not last very long…………


Over the last 38 years, Kadant PAAL Limited has become the UK`s leading manufacturer and supplier of static and portable waste compactors. The waste compactors are designed and developed for durability, high performance and ease of operation. This is important to organisations wishing to reduce the frequency and cost of waste collections or where space and hygiene are important factors. This is achieved by significantly reducing the ratio of waste from its original volume. Dependent upon the type of material, a Dicom waste compactor can reduce the waste volume by a ratio of 4:1. This ensures that maximum payloads are achieved with each container. Kadant PAAL's portable waste compactors can be supplied with several standard options, such as: liquid retentive seals to prevent food waste leakage, bin lifting equipment for lug and comb type waste containers, choice of standard hopper – open splayed, enclosed, dock loading. The static compactors are also available with a range of hopper options and tipping mechanisms and are available in a range of sizes to suit all volumes. Our equipment can be seen working in almost any industry including manufacturing, retail, leisure, hospitals, restaurants, food production, HM Forces, transport, schools & colleges, warehousing and is often used by waste and recycling contractors to process materials such as cardboard, plastics, food and general waste. Our products meet a range of wide and varied requirements, including the latest health and safety standards, and we offer a range of payment options from outright purchase, rental or lease; so regardless of your waste handling needs, Kadant PAAL have the solution.
