CBI Customer Case Study
Thomson Brothers Inc (TBI), N. Andover, MA
TBI was established in 1994 as a hauling business. Eventually, the Thomson’s decided to build a recycling facility to help the environment. After 10 long years of fighting for permits, they were able to start looking at equipment. Billy Thomson, Jr. traveled all over the country doing researching which vendor’s equipment and design capabilities would best fit their needs. Once CBI was chosen, they went to work on designing a state-of-the-art facility to meet current markets and yet be flexible enough to change with market trends. The design of this system has a little bit of everything. Primary Shredder, Vibratory Screen for 10” material, a Polyurethane Screen for 1/2” minus material, and then a Heavy & Light Air Separator to pull out 3 products — heavies, middles and super lights. The sorted wood goes directly to the grinder to be processed into boiler fuel and is stock piled in large self-leveling storage bins.
