The company has 110,000 square feet of modern manufacturing space with a capable and innovative engineering group. Peterson machines are sold and supported through a worldwide network of distributors and direct sales and service representatives.
Peterson Horizontal Grinders reduce wood, low value logs and other organic materials; the reduced material is used in the compost, mulch and biomass energy markets. Peterson grinders can also reduce certain construction and demolition materials such as asphalt shingles that can then be recycled and used in hot mix asphalt paving. Peterson drum and disc chippers and debarkers are used to produce wood chips for pulp and paper production as well as biomass energy markets. Peterson blower trucks and trailers are used to broadcast compost and mulch for landscaping and erosion control. Peterson deck screens are used for classifying materials to maximize the value of each product. Many Peterson machines are available in either electric or diesel power depending on the application. For increased mobility at a job site, both tracked and wheeled versions of many of their products are available.
Since 1981, Peterson has specialized in producing machines that turn low-grade organic materials into high value products.
