Atkinson Fencing Ltd was first introduced to Scanhugger in the 1990s, through a Scanhugger agent in the local area of Yorkshire, when the two brothers Brian & Mark Atkinson, went to purchase their first Scanhugger, to help reduce their wood waste and turn it into a valuable resource.
Unfortunately, a fire took place at the family business around the millennia, for which Atkinson Fencing purchased their second Scanhugger. Here, the Scanhugger has been shredding for approximately 8 hours a day. Turning wood waste from the Atkinson production of fencing, decking, arches, arbors, trellis, furniture, log cabins, summer houses, and sheds, into easily disposable chips.
Why opt for an Scanhugger shredder?
In October 2021, the Scanhugger needed a replacement after shredding for more than 46.000+ hours and 20+ years. In the autumn of 2021, Jason Atkinson installed a Scanhugger, HL 4/18/30 – one of the biggest models in the Scanhugger program.
At Atkinson Ltd, the quality chips of their recycled wood turn into 3 bi-products, which are very valuable for the company.
- Chips to burn for recycling (biomass fuel)
- Chips for horse arenas
- Bedding for cows
The value of these bi-products is not alone in the profit of selling them, but also in the reduction of transportation, storage, and heating expenses.
