HILLSBORO, OR, February 3, 2012 – MyBinding.com, a growing Inc. 5000 company, recently introduced a line of new Fellowes paper shredders that are manufactured in Itasca, Illinois.
Fellowes has enjoyed great success in the paper shredder industry and spread their business throughout 15 different countries. But in recent years, a joint venture with a Chinese company turned sour, resulting in huge losses for their company. Fellowes then focused their efforts toward building a new Illinois facility.
“Our highest performing shredders will be manufactured in Itasca, Illinois,” stated James Fellowes, CEO, in a statement released on their company website. “The technology is better suited for these high-performance machines.”
With the unveiling of their latest shredders, it’s clear that production setbacks have not decreased the quality consumers have come to expect from a Fellowes machine. Their new products range from smaller, personal devices up to heavy-duty large office machines and offer a host of fresh features. In their newer US factory, they are specifically producing the Fellowes Powershred 400 series. These robust shredders offer higher sheet capacity on the cross-cut models, patented Jam Proof and SafeSense technologies, and an automatic oil injection system.
“Fellowes is a great company and we’re really excited about adding their new products to our site,” said Jeff McRitchie, Vice-President of Marketing for MyBinding.com. “They always deliver high quality products that we can be proud to offer to our customers.”
The new lineup of Fellowes Powershred 400 series is comprised of a variety of robust machines. All models are designed for an office with ten or more users, providing continuous duty, commercial-grade shredding. The automatic start and stop feature allows the machine to be ready anytime without needing a warmup period. And Fellowes’ patented Jam Proof technology prevents overfeeding while powering through larger jobs. Cross-cut models in the 400 series include an automatic oil injection system and the larger 485 models provide a wider 16-inch feed opening. Each Powershred 400 machine is backed by a two year warranty with lifetime coverage for the cutting cylinders.
