Bandit Purchases The Trelan Co.

Bandit Industries has purchased The Trelan Co. from the Schumacher family. Bandit will continue to produce Trelan chippers and related products and market them as Trelan machines produced by Bandit. Bandit will also supply parts and service to Trelan customers.

Trelan has a strong history in the whole tree chipper arena. The first Trelan chippers were produced in the early ’70s. The Trelan chippers will add volume without affecting the sale of Bandit’s line of whole tree chippers.

Bandit will use Trelan’s 45,000 sq. ft. manufacturing space and 10,000 sq. ft. of storage buildings to continue to produce the Trelan machines and to produce additional Bandit machines.

Because of the strong demand for Bandit products, Bandit is on a major expansion campaign. Three expansions of Bandit plants were completed in 2021 and two other expansions will be completed in the first quarter of 2022. Three additional facilities will be built in 2022.

Bandit now employs 610, up from 450 in 2020. Bandit has 110 job openings and hope to increase employment to 800 employees by the end of 2022.
