WSM Super Shredder Case Study | Varn Wood Products

A Serendipitous Meeting with West Salem
Leads To Increased Uptime and Production

SEE OUR Super Shredder IN ACTION

Varn Wood products needed a solution...

When David Smith, superintendent of the pellet mill at Varn Wood Products, attended the 2017 Forest Products Machinery & Equipment Expo in Atlanta, he was looking for a solution for their wood pellet production. “The previous machine we used for grinding our wood chips wasn’t durable enough for the type of material we were grinding in it,” he says. “We had a lot of maintenance and downtime with that machine.” These repeated and prolonged issues were cutting into the mill’s production and bottom line.

The WSM Super Shredder is a Winner

"West Salem is great to work with and their equipment is top notch." - David Smith
