Having started life as Landforce in Grantham, Lincolnshire, we have been manufacturing chip and shred machines for many years and will be celebrating 15 years, 6 years of which in the ownership of Hardmet Landforce Limited in manufacturing in 2016.
First known as Landforce, the initial business focus was to manufacture chippers and shredders 6” to 10” to satisfy the Tree Surgeon market. The early years were spent developing prototypes and manufacturing stock machines.
1999 saw the creation of the Duo and Chip ranges and the start of success in the hydraulic chipper market. Outperforming its competitors, the machines cost less than other makes and ensured a period of good growth.
By the time 2006 came around, Landforce was a popular professional wood chipper manufacturer in the UK. Three sizes of Chipper and three Duo machines, all hydraulic feed models, were successfully being manufactured at this time.
Once it grew beyond just the tree surgeon market, the company was purchased by the Hardmet Group in 2009 and became Hardmet Landforce to accommodate the expanding Wood Chipper, Stump Grinder and Recycling markets. and moved to a purpose-built factory in Worcestershire where our small team still reside and produce all of the machines.
For the next six years, the focus was on expanding the UK coverage and establishing a dealer network that covered UK and expand our export markets into Europe, Far East, Middle East, North and South America.
Keeping up with the ever-changing demands within our target markets, the Chip 730 was launched in 2015 a substantial machine in terms of chipper design and one that has laid the foundations for the future Hardmet Landforce machines.
