Paper shredding companies select affordable, durable Kenworth T300 for mobile units
Fast-growing shredding services company Absolute Shreds had never used a Kenworth truck in its business. But when the Kenworth T300 was incorporated by AXO Shredders, which specializes in manufacturing customized mobile shredding systems, Absolute Shreds jumped at the offer. Two-year-old Blue-Pencil Mobile Shredding & Recycling of Mississauga, Ont., recently bought an AXO unit, which has more than double the shredding capacity of its other truck. "The AXO shredder offers the fastest technology in the industry and the Kenworth T300 is a powerful, durable truck, which should last at least 15 years," said Blue-Pencil president Mario Skopek.
Companies such as Absolute Shreds and Blue-Pencil provide on-site shredding services to businesses, including medical, law and financial offices. "Any business that takes personal information and keeps records has need for our services," Brechtelsbauer said. "It's more cost effective for them to use a shredding service because of the equipment and personnel costs."
Skopek said the Toronto market is among North America's most competitive with over 10 firms offering on-site shredding. "The industry will continue to grow as more companies realize the benefits of hiring a shredding service," said Skopek, whose firm has over 600 clients.
AXO gives customers a leg up on the competition by utilizing the Kenworth T300 chassis combined with a vehicle package featuring a box which houses a high-volume shredder. The shredder can chew through at least 5,000 pounds of paper per hour and the vehicle has a paper payload of 10,000 pounds.
"We wanted the best cab and chassis in the industry to package with our state-of-the-art mobile shredding concept and we have it with the Kenworth T300," said Pete Viveen, AXO Technical Director. "It offers a durable vehicle that's affordable, reliable and able to maneuver into any space at our customers' locations. Our body and the T300 are integrated into a mobile shredding system that delivers greater profits through increased shredding capacity, payload, vehicle size and reliability."
