Nowadays, OMC Collareda is a company with 45 employees and 12 million turnover which is known worldwide in the paper industry for its activities in the fields of water and fibre treatment and recovery, primary and final water treatment and stock preparation. The technologies that OMC Collareda applies from time to time are the most suitable to achieve the customer’s desired results: from reverse osmosis to microfiltration for primary water, from aerobic/anaerobic solutions to MBBR solutions for biological plants, from high or low density pulpers to flotation systems for the stock preparation, from dewatering tables to flotation systems for the recovery of water and raw materials.
The 90% of the activity of the company based in Vicenza is carried out abroad, with a portfolio of installations ranging from Mexico to Tunisia, from Egypt to Peru.
OMC Collareda was founded in 1974 and it was a small mechanical workshop of carpentry construction for industry in general. Even then, the focus was on the paper industry, with the production of tanks, vats, pipes and their installation at the customer’s site, including the respective connection pipes.
In 1981, understanding the needs of the Paper Industry to recover the process water for its reuse, and the recovery of raw materials contained in them, it began for OMC Collareda the adventure of designing and building equipment suitable for these goals, with the development and construction of the first “self-cleaning” sand filter, currently still in production. In those years some changes in the company name took place, which led to become O.M.C. Collareda Srl, while maintaining its production characteristics unchanged. In the following years, with the aim of creating its own products, resources were dedicated to the development and design of other technologies for the paper industry, not only for water treatment and recovery of raw materials, but also for auxiliary equipment to be installed within stock preparation.
