About Us

Company Profile

Since our inception in 1934, as a producer of steel products, OTTO entered the waste handling market by starting up the mass production of steel litter bins in 1950. Soon after the introduction of plastic as raw material in the early sixties, OTTO developed and successfully introduced in 1965 the plastic 2-Wheel bin concept on the German market. Based on the success of this product, OTTO rapidly developed into one of the leading manufacturers of waste containers in Europe. In 1982 we took the world's largest plastic injection moulding machine in operation, followed by state-of-the-art production facilities in Germany (1992) and France (1993).
