Who are Kadant Paal Limited?

Over the last 38 years, Kadant PAAL Limited has become the UK`s leading manufacturer and supplier of static and portable waste compactors. 

There are 4 great reasons that set Kadant Paal Limited and the Dicom brand of equipment apart from its rivals as the UK's leading manufacturer and supplier of recycling baler and waste compaction equipment:


Kadant Paal Limited have been manufacturing recycling and waste handling equipment for almost 40 years in the UK with equipment lasting upwards of 20 years in some very harsh waste environments. Our product's reputation and performance in the UK is why we are seen as market leaders. Our sister company Kadant Paal GmbH have also been manufacturing the PAAL brand horizontal balers for 150 years.
Our experience is gained by all our team having spent several years in the waste handling equipment industry. This gives Kadant Paal Limited the ability to offer the correct solution to any waste handling application.


As an organisation, we have a vast amount of knowledge of our products and the applications they can operate in; however we are not complacent and are always increasing our knowledge by pushing the boundaries of our equipment and skills, to improve.


Our products offer truly superb performance and cost savings.

The performance of our products is top of our quality agenda as part of our ISO9001:2015 accreditation. Kadant Paal Limited analyse any failure mode and operate a cycle of continuous improvement in the design, manufacturing, sales and servicing processes to ensure wasted activity is minimised and that the customer gets a quality machine, via a quality process and support from a quality after sales team.

Customer feedback is managed through our Quality Management System, with every site receiving a Customer Satisfaction Questionnaire.


Our team is our family and our strenght but it is also a team that believes you, the customer, is 'Number One'.
