New Member Alert: Bandit Industries

November 10, 2023

The Southern Forest Products Association is proud to welcome Bandit Industries as an associate member!

Since 1983, Bandit Industries has manufactured equipment for a multitude of wood waste processing markets, including whole tree chippers since 1988, and was the first to develop a self-propelled model.

In 2005, Bandit expanded the whole tree chipper product line by producing a drum-style chipper called the Model 2090. Since then, a complete line of highly productive drum-style chippers have been engineered. Bandit announced in 2021 the purchase of The Trelan Company, which has produced quality disc-style chippers since the 1970s. That acquisition further enhanced Bandit’s line of whole tree chippers by offering diverse disc and drum-style chippers.

The vision since the beginning is to build quality, highly productive, easy-to-maintain equipment that provide years of dependable service. The commitment for quality, innovation, and dedication is instilled in every employee and is one of the main reasons why Bandit became an Employee-Owned Company (ESOP) in 2018. These core values ensure each Bandit machine leaves the factory ready to exceed client expectations.
