Dear Scrap Recycler:

There is no equipment brand more widely known to scrap processors than Harris. For decades, scrap recyclers have come to rely on the rugged shearing and baling equipment made by Harris because it offers the utmost in durability and dependability.

Harris is proud to have worked side-by-side with the growing scrap industry for several decades, supplying the equipment that has helped the industry become the prominent economic sector it is today.

The same Hams shears and balers that helped recyclers get the job done in the 950s and 1960s can still be found on the job, serving the same reliable role for today's business owners that they did for a previous generation.

This reputation for dependability is why many of our customers urged us to design and build our own brand of metals shredding equipment. Harris Shredder was created to supply the same core customers whom we have long served.

As many of these customers entered into the shredding business, they wanted an equipment supplier that could provide a decades-long tradition of trust, dependability, product support and attention to customer service. They've known all along that Harris fits that description, which is why they urged us to build our own shredders.


Today, we are proud to offer a complete line of Harris metals shredders to suit the needs of our existing friends and customers in the market. We are confident that Hams Shredder is now broadening the Hams reputation for reliability and durability from shears and balers and into the shredder market. Our shredders will be on the job for decades to come, and Harris Shredder will be here to support them.

Doug Sebastian,

Vice President, Harris Waste Management Group, Inc


The roots of Harris Shredder trace back to the very origins of large-scale scrap processing equipment. Russell Clemons (R.C.) Harris was a skilled machinist who co-founded a sawmill equipment and locomotive repair business and machine shop in central Georgia in 1889.

R.C. Harris and succeeding generations of family members and co-workers provided machinery to serve several additional industries throughout the early part of the 20th century. In 1938, R.C.'s son Russell and grandson Tom Ray Harris led the design of a scrap metal baling press with hydraulic circuits that could provide greater compression force at faster speeds than anything else being used at the time.
