Advanced manufacturing facility helps AXO meet demand
The Secure Document and Information Destruction business is growing.
Continent wide demand for the Secure Document Shred trucks built by Kitchener based AXO Shredders Corp. has created an opportunity for AXO to double the size of their current facility and move to a state of the art factory designed to build 150 to 200 SDS trucks per year.
Company spokesman and Director of Sales Michael Oden puts it this way “We started up with one mission in mind, to change the industry’s perception of what a mobile shred truck could be and to provide a choice to clients looking for more trouble free maintenance and a lower total cost of ownership. We manufacture simplicity into every truck we build and simplicity is what operators need.”
From Sacramento to Providence - national accounts to start up clients - shred equipment buyers are now coming to AXO in numbers and this move places an exclamation point on what has been a very successful enterprise to date.
AXO builds a wide variety of SDS equipment catering to established large volume shredding operators as well as start up companies taking their first steps in the industry. The company manufactures the entire package, including body, frames, shredder, and load and unload system, in the most modern facility in the industry.
Models include the AXO 408 PEASHOOTER™, which does not require a commercial driver’s license right up to
the mighty, full-sized 608 STAK model, capable of shredding incredible volumes of paper.
Industry experts know why AXO is on the move. Scott Fasken, a Director of NAID and Vice President of Colorado Document Destruction in Palisades, CO, offers these comments.
“AXO changed the face of the shredding industry by being the first manufacturer to recognize the value of a route vehicle” states Fasken. “I was a big truck person and have discovered the cost savings and value proposition of the small truck, but since full sized trucks are still the backbone of the business AXO has covered all the bases with the full sized 608 SELECT and 608 STAK. With the simplified shredder system and straightforward operation, it is no mystery why AXO has seen significant growth.”
