Africa Biomass Company’s legacy of innovation

ABC’s legacy of innovation has been built on more than 80 000 hours operational experience. This enabled us to develop and adapt machines for waste wood recycling in Africa, which truly adds value to the customer’s operation.

A wide range of wood chipping, grinding and spreading equipment are manufactured locally to specifications required for African conditions.

First world technology & quality combined with African simplicity. Bandit’s hand-fed wood chippers’ main units are manufactured by Bandit Industries, Inc. with 35+ years of experience in innovation and international research and experience of different dealers and customers across the world, and then shipped to South Africa.

These units are fitted on SABS-approved roadworthy trailers that are built at Africa Biomass Company’s headquarters in Worcester, South Africa.

Engine-powered wood chippers are also fitted with Tier 3 South African standard diesel or petrol engines, depending on the wood chipper’s specifications or client’s preference.

The add-ons are specifically handpicked to give you the best set-up and will provide you with a well-balanced wood chipper that will outperform all Bandit’s competitors in Africa.

In 2019 Africa Biomass Company signed a contract with Rovic Leers, making them the only company to sell and distribute ABC’s patented designed mulch spreader, dubbed “BioSpread.”

The BioSpread is a unique piece of equipment and is able to assist farmers in spreading wood chip mulch and compost in new and established orchards.
