JWC Environmental was started in 1973 in Santa Ana, California by father and son Joseph and Woodie Chambers.  They invented the first dual-shafted wastewater grinder and eventually named it the Muffin Monster.  Today, JWCE has shipped over 25,000 Muffin Monsters worldwide and our family of 150 employees are committed to providing leading technologies, services and value. We manufacture over 200 different versions of  grinders and screens for sewage and sludge processing.

The Muffin Monster is legendary in the wastewater industry for power and reliability – it efficiently turns rags, trash and debris into small particles so they flow easily through pumps and systems.

Over the last four decades we have built one of the best distributor and representative networks in the industry. We distribute products through a global network of 50 international distributors and 40 American representative firms. In addition, JWCE provides extensive sales and service support in North America through two regional service centers in Santa Ana, California and Buford, Georgia.

In 2001 we opened our European manufacturing center in Cheshire, UK. In 2007 we opened our Asia-Pacific operations in Hangzhou, China.


Advanced sewage treatment equipment is of vital and growing importance to the world and JWCE is a leading manufacturer of equipment for wastewater treatment, solids reduction, solids removal and processing. The Monster family of products is legendary for quality and reliability – including the Muffin Monster and Channel Monster sewage grinders, Auger Monster wastewater screens, Screenings Washer Monster and Monster Separation Systems – incorporating a finescreen or bandscreen with superior screenings conditioning.

JWCE products have won a total of four Innovative Technology Awards from the Water Environment Federation, more than any other wastewater manufacturer.
