Founded in 1947, West Salem Machinery Co. (WSM) is an established manufacturing company with a long history of building rugged and reliable processing machinery for the Wood Products Industry.

Our progress through the years has taken WSM from a regional supplier of machinery to sawmills in the Pacific Northwest — to a leading manufacturer of wood waste and wood fiber processing machinery and recycling systems; with satisfied customers throughout North America and around the globe. From primary wood products (sawmills, panel plants, pulp & paper), to secondary wood products (re-man, cut-stock, moulding), to value-added wood (engineered wood, truss, pallets, furniture, door/window), to the new area of wood recycling (log yard debris, urban wood, C&D wood, green waste) — WSM's wide range of quality processing machines and systems, combined with our decades of experience in the field, delivers the best solution to your wood waste and wood fiber processing needs. Some recent examples of WSM's innovative machines include our High Inertia Wood & Bark Hog, Ram-Feed High Torque Shredder, Panel Shredder, and The Brute Portable Wood Recycler.

Backing up WSM's commitment is an ongoing investment in people, facilities, and manufacturing tools that help us deliver superior machinery value to our customers. WSM offers in-house design and engineering, complete machining and fabrication facilities, and knowledgeable sales and service staff to provide the support our customers needs — both today and in the years to come.

We are thankful for the support we have received from our customers over the years, and look forward to the future with a clear direction and purpose — to assist our customers in adding value to their wood fiber resource. We look forward to the opportunity to work with you on your wood waste and wood fiber processing needs.
