Last month, Sunnking asked New Yorkers to submit their cleverest names for their industrial electronics shredder. SUNY Brockport student, Jessica Lisk, won the contest and was the fifth overall submission in February with Shreddie Van Halen.

After receiving more than 200 creative name submissions from Rochester and Buffalo in March, Sunnking staff and leadership reviewed the list and selected five (5) finalists for public voting.


Sunnking’s electronics shredder destroys over 10 million lbs of recycled devices each year.

Since its launch in mid-August, Sunnking’s Live Shredder Camera feed has been viewed for more than 500 hours by people worldwide.

The teams considered various factors when selecting the finalists, including creativity, uniqueness, and names that would be easily identifiable and understandable to broad audiences.
