Industry Exclusive: Fellowes Paper Shredder Shipment Blocked

Fellowes Office Paper ShreddersIn case you haven’t heard, Fellowes (the makers of those shredders everyone loves) is experiencing a headache of epic proportions. Fellowes has confirmed that its Chinese joint venture partner has blocked all shipments at its facility in Changzhou, China.

As a result, many Fellowes paper shredders are no longer in stock and are on indefinite backorder. The shipment stoppage began in August and should begin to affect U.S. markets in September. Fellowes  is in the process of working with with the Chinese government and party officials (with the help of the US government). Current efforts by Fellowes have been unable to lift the blockage.

While this spells bad news for many of you who use and enjoy Fellowes paper shredders, it doesn’t mean you’re stuck without an alternative. HSM, a leading manufacturer of high-quality office shredders, has produced a list of Fellowes “equivalent” models.

From my own experience with HSM, I can safely say that you will be as happy (if not happier) with an HSM shredder as you will be with a Fellowes shredder. You can find our entire line of HSM paper shredders here.
