Sebright Products – Testimonials

“I personally wish to thank the team at Sebright for the support, help and faith you had in me and OTA Services.

While at Waste Management from 1980 to 1989 I worked hard to introduce the quality of high density compactors built by Sebright. I am proud of the success I had there even though so many division managers and maintenance managers were caught up believing in cheap machines. One of the really great moments in the years with Waste was when a maintenance manager responsible for about fifteen divisions told me that I had saved that district over one million dollars in maintenance and repair cost, all because we had put Sebright Products in to every new installation for a number of years. This was while I was at Waste Management Partners from 1989 to 1995. .

I can certainly attest to the quality of Sebright compactors for when my son sold the company, seventy percent or more of the packers were Sebright machines. Every Sebright packer I bought and placed as rentals for our OTA Services fleet is still out there and operating. A number of those machines are almost 20 years old. So when John took over OTA he had quality equipment in place and I told him with proper maintenance, I felt he could get another fifteen years or more out of them.”

As a Maintenance Supervisor with IPA Management I have seen both the economic and aesthetic impact that the Sebright Products Industrial Trash compactor can make to the curb appeal of an apartment community.

At Clearview Apartments in Holland Mi., we had several containers located in the parking lots throughout the property. Every week as the containers were filled trash would either blow around or would be placed around them. Our grounds staff spent a lot of time trying to maintain the curb appeal of the community.

When we converted over to the trash compactor our parking lots stayed much cleaner and we spent considerably less time maintaining curb appeal. Having a single container that only had to be emptied once every 4 to 6 weeks was more economical than having multiple smaller containers that had to be emptied weekly.

We were also able to market the fact that we were being environmentally friendly by compacting the trash, thus using far less landfill space. As a result of the savings and the impact on curb appeal IPA Management has installed the trash compactors on all of our new apartment developments.

This is just a quick note to let you know that we value our 25-year plus partnership.

Brent originally started manufacturing exclusively the Brask-spec compactor, which was based on quality and longevity, not cheap price. Over the last fifteen years, Sebright Products re-engineered the Model 4660 compactor so that it out performs any of the competitors units.

Yes, the upfront cost is greater, but these costs are offset when you factor in substantially less maintenance costs and the fact that the life of the compactor (4660) is extended when the compactor is rebuilt. We scrap very few 4660’s so that we receive a large R.O.I. on these units.

Keep up the good work

Just how and when I first learned of Sebright Products I don’t know for sure. I do know for the past 15 years it has been a very pleasant experience doing business with a company whose people are so upbeat and professional.

Over the past years we have purchased 11 Sebright compactors, some have been in operation for 15 years producing average loads in excess of 10 tons, with very minimal down time. This type of compaction is a testimony to the durability and strength of the Sebright compactor.

From initial order through turnkey installation and any required service after installation Sebright and its people have made the experience seamless.

Thank you
