CW Mill, located in Sabetha, Kansas, which anchors it close to the center of the nation it serves, was incorporated in 1973, and provides products that meet a wide variety of customer needs. It is the superior products and that customer-first approach that keeps CW Mill going strong.
“We are always trying to provide the best customer service. Our priority…is to get the customer up and going.” said Tim Wenger, Vice President & Sales Manager, of CW Mill Equipment Co., Inc.
With incorporation in 1973, CW Mill Equipment began building alfalfa pelleting plants and hay grinding equipment for customers which then lead to building tub grinders. By the 1980s, a machine built exclusively for grinding wood waste was on the product roster, named HogZilla®. In 2001 HogZilla® grinders were offered on tracks and in 2004 HogZilla® horizontal grinders were introduced. Electric grinders were introduced in 2007. Ironically, CW started out building electric tub grinders exclusively 39 years ago. The switch from diesel is being made for several customers for added efficiency, of course, diesel is still needed for portability, and so there is a place for more than one type of power. So it is, too, with tub versus horizontal configurations. Different customers have different needs. Waste consolidation companies often want a dual-service machine, for instance. “Our wood machines can be converted to grind scrap tires as well,” said Brian Bergman, Operations Manager.
“The thing that we hang our hat on is that we are very customer driven,” said Brian. CW builds to meet customer need, he explained, doing a significant amount of customization.
“Every grinder we build is better than the last; each grinder became a continual evolution, a better machine. We learn everyday – why wait until the next model year to introduce improvements,” said Tim.
As other grinder makers began to query CW about its wear-resistant mill parts, CW established its ArmorHog® line. Since 2008, ArmorHog® has supplied replacement parts and service for other brands of grinders for rigid hammer style tub grinder, horizontal grinder, and other hammermill applications.
Solid waste reduction, wood recycling, land clearing, construction demolition, mulch making and tire processing are just some of the industry sectors that CW Mill serves.
It was the responsiveness to customer requirements that has opened many opportunities in product development. The downturn in agriculture in the 1980’s led in part to the development and manufacture of CW Mill’s line of hydraulic clutch pump mounting kits in 1986.
The hydraulic clutch pump equips a vehicle with live hydraulics when the engine is running, irrespective of RPMs or gear, with hundreds of kits fitting most ½ through 2-ton class trucks built after 1985. Besides salt spreaders, snow plows, dump bodies, tow trucks and a long list of other hydraulically-driven tools operate thanks to these kits. CW’s kits have evolved into other applications such as AC compressor kits for refrigeration trucks and auxiliary alternator kits for emergency response or news cast vehicles.
In 2014, another addition to the product lineup was added. CW began offering DynaHog® Grinder Parts. DynaHog® Parts are high performance grinder parts for swing hammer style tub grinders, horizontal grinders, and other hammermill applications. DynaHog® provides quality hammermill screens, hammers, other parts, and grinder service for Jones, Haybuster, WHO, & Other Brands.
A family-owned business, CW Mill Equipment involves not only Tim in day-to-day operations, but also his two married daughters and their spouses. Tim’s brother, John Wenger joined the company in 1986. John is president of the company and heads up the kit side of the business.
There will always be hurdles, such as economic downturns or natural disasters. But they simply demand more creative thinking and new initiatives. However, one thing is certain. The customer will continue to be the focus,” said Tim.
