It appears you are uniquely qualified to deal with waste solutions. Many established brands have been reticent to make the leap into working with the cannabis industry. When did Franklin Miller transcend the traditional industrial sectors into cannabis waste disposal?

We started to get calls about this a little over three years ago. When we looked into the market, we realized this was a perfect fit for our shredders. We have been expanding in the market ever since. As the cannabis/hemp industries grow, so does our place in them. It’s been a great fit.

Our reputation in size reduction brought our first cannabis customer our way. We used our experience in other industries to show what our shredders could handle in terms of their cannabis waste and processing needs. It was a great conversation/interaction that led to a very satisfied customer.

Did you ever think that when you first made your foray into cannabis that it might lead to filming a scene in a show like Canna Cribs?

Since the passage of the Farm Bill we are seeing a massive surge in hemp farming in the U.S. How are hemp farmers applying your equipment to their farming operations?

Definitely not! When we sold our first machine in the Cannabis industry, we had no idea how big the industry was getting – and growing more every day. Such exciting times to be involved, as I know everyone here knows! We were so excited to be featured in the Canna Cribs episode. It was a lot of fun to have our shredders showcased.

Franklin Miller has designed a two stage shredding system specifically for processing wet hemp, with a moisture content of up to 80% for safer hemp drying and maximum oil extraction. We are the first and only company with a system designed for shredding wet hemp.
