Peterson Pacific Corp. is a US-based manufacturer of grinders, chippers/flails, screens, and other machines that serve a variety of industries, particularly forestry. Peterson machines are sold and supported through a growing worldwide network, and in 2010 alone, expanded their North America distribution list by 20 dealers.
Peterson Pacific horizontal grinders reduce wood, low value logs and other organic materials that can be used in the compost, mulch and biomass energy markets. Peterson grinders can also reduce construction and demolition materials like asphalt shingles that can then be recycled. Peterson chippers and flails are used to produce wood chips for pulp and paper production as well as biomass energy markets. Peterson screens are used for classifying materials to maximize value of the product.
Many Peterson machines are available in either electric or diesel power and for increased site mobility, both tracked and wheeled versions of most of their products are available.
