Manufacturing

The products we supply to our customers consist of either:

  • Wood shavings
  • Chopped wheat straw
  • Or a combination of the two which we class as a mixture bale

These are all dust extracted and baled up into either approx 230kg bales which require a loader to handle them, or approx 23kg bales which can be carried by hand.

The wood shavings are transported in bulk trailers from the wood mills which use only soft, kiln dried untreated wood, to our plants for further processing into polythene bales.

We have also recently installed one of the largest wood shaving planers in the UK, which produces 9 tonnes of flakes per hour to produce our own manufactured wood shaving flakes, which are all kiln dried in our rotary drier down to a moisture content of 10%.

Installing our own planers and driers insures us that we will never let our customers down in supplying them with their product, as we can be self sufficient and don’t have to solely rely on the sawmills as our source of raw materials.

We also bale our own wheat and barley straw behind the combine which we purchase from local farmers in East Anglia, using 4 Hesston balers at a moisture content of 15% or lower during harvest, this is then all barn stored. We pride ourselves in providing an efficient service to the farmers by clearing the Hesstons off their land promptly using 4 super chasers.

The barley straw is delivered out to the duck sites and the wheat straw is stored all year round ready to be chopped, processed and dust extracted in our plants and again re-baled up on our 2 automatic small balers, 3 small manual balers, and 3 maxi balers.

Our bedding we produce is baled up at one of our 3 chopping plants which are based in Lincolnshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. All the bedding that we produce is dust extracted at our chopping / baling plants, the extracted dust from the straw and wood shavings is then used to produce our own briquettes. These are produced by compressing the dust through briquette machines making small cylinder shape briquettes and are then supplied to the power stations.
