VP FleetGenius Compactor Solutions
Jim Mechler leads FleetGenius Compactor Solutions, providing sales, installation, and service of new and reconditioned stationary and self-contained compactors, auger compactors, balers, conveyors, and transfer station systems for every waste and recycling application optimizing efficiency and safety.
Jim has over 30 years of experience in the waste and recycling industry. He began welding and working on compactors at the age of 14. After learning the industry, Jim bet on himself and started his own business, J-Mec Inc., in 1992. His complex installation knowledge and skills set him apart from other service companies and helped him build a strong national presence.
In 1998 he moved his operations to Lake Mills and in 2002 he expanded into the Chicago area in order to better serve the high Chicagoland demand. In 2008 he outgrew his original Lake Mills location and built a 50,000 sq. foot facility down the street. In 2017, J-Mec joined National Waste Partners where Jim oversaw additional sites in WA, AZ, TX and AL.
