New life for waste wood

HAAS TYRON “VIKING” goes to Manchester

Award-winning UK wood processors Hadfield Wood Recyclers, has purchased a HAAS TYRON 2000 XL  industrial wood shredder from leading materials processing equipment supplier, Matpro Machinery.

The new acquisition has taken home at the company’s Manchester site, helping to ease the workload from its existing fleet of machines due to ever-increasing tonnages. As part of the purchase, a service agreement has also been established with Matpro, ensuring the machine is serviced for every 250 hours of work. The purchase comes after a healthy, long-term relationship with Matpro sister company, CRJ Services, with whom Hadfield Wood Recyclers have hired HAAS wood shredders from for many years.

With more than 35 years’ experience in waste wood recycling, Hadfield Wood Recyclers currently process 300 000 tonnes of waste wood a year at its sites in Manchester, Middlesbrough and Tilbury Docks in Essex. They recycle the wood into a number of products including animal bedding, feedstock for panel board and biomass fuel. The company takes all grades of non-hazardous waste wood and puts it through a stringent segregation and cleaning process. On the manufacturing front, Hadfield Wood Recyclers are no stranger to the HAAS brand themselves, with an existing HAAS wood shredder already being long in operation at its Tilbury, London site for the past three years. The third TYRON was recently ordered and will soon prove its strength in Tilbury as well. James Oates, Engineering Supervisor at Hadfield Wood Recyclers commented: “The HAAS TYRON 2000 XL has been very reliable so far and Matpro Machinery has provided a top-notch service.”
