Peterson Pacific Corp. has delivered its 2,000th machine to come off the production line to Tabeel Trading, based in Australia. The milestone machine is a Peterson 5000H, a delimber/debarker/chipper, which produces high quality low bark content chips for wood pulp and pellets, processing whole trees in one continuous operation.
“Reaching this milestone delivery is a testament to the capabilities of the 5000H, and our commitment to continuous innovation,” said Larry Cumming, president of Peterson. “The new 5000H is delivering on its promise to our customers, and we continue to look at ways to make it even more efficient in the future.”
The 5000H is designed to make engineered wood chips in the field. It delimbs, debarks and creates the consistent sized wood chips used in the pulp and paper industry.
Peterson hosted a special delivery ceremony on site for its employees. The 2000th machine was adorned with a special logo commemorating the 2,000th machine and the U.S. and Australian flags.
“We are excited that our 2,000th machine is a 5000H — this is one of our flagship models, and we trust that it will be a valued addition to Tabeel Trading’s operations,” said Michael Spreadbury, marketing manager of Peterson. “Tabeel Trading is a valued partner and their feedback from the field helps us develop new forest processing equipment. The exceptional performance of machines such as the 5000H, prove that in-field chipping is the most economical way to produce clean chips for the pulp and paper industry. Peterson has a long-standing relationship with in-field chipping operations in Australia, and we wanted to honor that with the commemorative logo which will be a reminder of our relationship with Tabeel Trading, now and into the future.”
