Plessisville, Que. – Machinex employees Sébastien Delisle and Jonathan Fortier have received the internationally valid TÜV NORD Certification and are now CMSEs (Certified Machinery Safety Expert). CMSE is a globally recognized license that enables a 360° approach to machinery safety.

Both Delisle and Fortier already work daily to guarantee that Machinex systems fulfill all laws and regulations. This certification
confirms their competence to advise on the safety of machinery, entire plants, and factories.

They have extensive knowledge of machinery lifecycles, from risk assessment through the development of safety concepts and the application of functional safety principles, to the actual implementation to ensure compliance with applicable legislation.

Pierre Paré, Machinex CEO, said: “At Machinex, we have always considered the importance of safety in the manufacturing and improvement of our equipment. To be recognized as a CMSE – Certified Machinery Safety Expert (TÜV NORD) is a great achievement for our employees and it brings Machinex to a higher level of safety.”

Delisle and Fortier are also NWRA members who serve actively on the ANSI Z245 Drafting Committee that exists especially for the recycling industry. This ANSI series covers recycling facilities, Baling/Compacting/Sorting systems, Size Reduction equipment, and all required operations of a plant cycle life.

In the early 1980s, Machinex became the first company in Canada to design machinery for material recycling facilities. The company established itself as a leader in designing profitable, quality recycling sorting systems. Today, it is still a world leader in the industry, developing cutting-edge sorting, waste management, and recycling technology. The company has designed and installed over 350 turnkey facilities in partnership with leading MRFs in Canada, the United States, Europe, and Australia.
