Timber Business Invests In Wood Waste Heater To Save Money On Energy Bills

Clare Hollister

A timber products manufacturer in the Southwest of England has purchased a wood waste heater from Wood Waste Technology to save money on heating and waste disposal. 

Face Edge Ltd manufactures bespoke timber products for retail and office refits. Its manufacturing operation is split across a number of individual units at its head office in Bideford, North Devon.

With the increasing energy bills, Director at Face Edge, Des Brown decided to look into other options to heat the workshop. He explains: “After some research, we realised that investing in a wood waste heater made good business sense, as our manufacturing process results in lots of wood offcuts. Feeding these offcuts into a wood waste heater would not only save money on waste disposal and prevent more waste going to landfill, but would also create free heating for the factory in the process, reducing our energy bills and benefiting our bottom line. “

The team at Face Edge ordered a WT10 wood waste heater, which was installed by Wood Waste Technology’s experienced engineers. 

Des explains: “In today’s economic environment, businesses need to operate as efficiently as possible. Investing in the wood waste heater will help us to control our costs and save money, whilst maintaining a comfortable temperature in the workshop.”

As the wood waste heater is perfectly located to serve all the individual units, including the offices and machine shop, goods-in-and-out areas, canteen, stores, assembly, materials storage and spray shop, the heat generated will benefit not just the people working in the business, but also help to offset the damp atmosphere in the cold winter months that can negatively affect any stored wood and spray-painted items. 

Kurt Cockroft says: “Whatever the primary reason for purchase, whether it’s to generate heat, reduce waste disposal, or both – a wood waste heater is a cost effective and productive solution for companies that generate waste wood, and the investment can pay back in less than 12 months.” 

Wood Waste Technology’s years of expertise in wood waste solutions have helped many companies reduce their waste disposal and heating costs.  As well as offering site survey, design, manufacture, installation and on-going maintenance for new units, the company also services all types of wood waste heaters and supplies genuine spares up to 60% cheaper than other suppliers.

In addition, Wood Waste Technology is the UK official distributor for Gross Apparatebau GmbH, a German manufacturer of dependable, precision engineered shredders and briquetters, available in various size and specifications to suit all business applications.
