Meet the team behind slammer

Artie Rode Jr has been dealing with NYC hotels, restaurants and hospitals for his entire career. His knowledge of the market and the equipment industry was a good fit. He noticed two things over the past several years. First, as new commercial spaces were being developed, space was at a premium and there was very little space to store and manage trash. Secondly, the laws were changing in NYC which were going to require businesses to manage their trash very differently. The problem was that none of the existing manufacturers offered a compactor that met the specific needs of the city and the weight limitations for handling trash. Artie decided to leverage his knowledge and experience to develop and manufacture a product designed to solve these issues. The Slammer is the result of those efforts. You would be hard pressed to find another company with such a direct knowledge of the problems that NYC businesses face when managing their trash. Artie takes a personal interest in making sure every solution meets the specific needs of all Slammer clients. He is proud to say that our product is not only made in the USA, but is made by New Yorkers.

Artie Rode Sr has over 35 years of experience in the field of hydraulics and electronics. His knowledge of compactors and balers played a key role in the design and development of the Slammer unit. That experience also taught him the importance of using American parts and components. Building a quality, well built unit was the ultimate goal. The Slammer had exceeded his vision and expectations.


“When we opened our hotel, we quickly realized that we had no space for the garbage we were generating. The Slammer was the only unit that could fit in a small 10X6 closet. It turned six garbage totes into three. The Slammer was a great solution for us!”

Frank Coletta - One Hotel Central Park

“The Slammer has allowed us to reduce our 30 yard dumpster costs by 60%. The compactor paid for itself in six months and we now recognize ongoing savings.”
