Timber Manufacturer Saves Money By Investing In Wood Waste Heater

Clare Hollister

A timber manufacturer has purchased a replacement wood waste heater from Wood Waste Technology to continue to save money on waste disposal bills and heating costs.

Stoneleigh Timber Engineering Ltd is an independent manufacturer of roof trusses, floor joists, stairs and timber wall components based in Wiltshire.

The business manufactures its products from a 1940’s building that used to make spitfire components. Although the large building provides the business with lots of manufacturing space, it’s a cold, draughty building to work in during the winter.

When Managing Director, Adrian Hall took over the business 5 years ago, the building already contained a wood waste heater, but it was quite old and hadn’t been very well looked after. Adrian didn’t want to be without a wood waste heater, having become reliant on it to dispose of waste wood and generate free heating, so he decided the business needed to replace it with a newer model. As Wood Waste Technology had been out to service the original boiler, Adrian contacted Kurt Cockroft at Wood Waste Technology to purchase a replacement.

Adrian explains: “We generate 40 cubic metres of waste wood each year, so a wood waste heater is vital to our operation, especially as we aim to make our business as carbon neutral as possible. The WT15 burner ticks a lot of boxes for us, as it’s a good piece of kit at the right price – plus we’ve always found the team at Wood Waste Technology to be especially helpful. The new heater is fantastic, and performs even better than we hoped it would, giving us greater heat output than the original burner. We’re delighted we purchased a new one from Wood Waste Technology.”

MD of Wood Waste Technology, Kurt Cockroft says: “Wood waste heaters help businesses to save money on heating, reduce waste disposal costs and provide carbon neutral energy, which are all extremely important factors in today’s economic climate.”

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.
