Robert Riethmiller became President and CEO of Philadelphia Tramrail, now PTR Baler and Compactor Co., in 1968. His family started the company in 1907.  Shortly after he started, the market for his company’s main product dried out so he began making balers and compactors, now sold worldwide.  His company received the Family Business Award in 2002 from the Wharton School of Business. Mr. Riethmiller was a charter member of WASTEC and continues to serve as the Membership Committee Chair and Representative on the Board of Governors.  He is also the current Scholarship Chairman at the Environmental Research and Education Foundation.  He is an active supporter of Mercy Vo Tech trade school and a board member of the Abington Memorial Hospital Foundation.
