Industry Exclusive: Fellowes Paper Shredder Shipment Blocked

Wednesday, September 8th, 2010

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.

We have created a convenient list of Fellowes paper shredders and their HSM shredder equivalents. You can find this list by clicking here.

What Does OMDD Mean? (HSM 411.2 OMDD Paper Shredders)

HSM 411.2 OMDD CD and DVD Optical Media Shredder

I recently had a customer ask me what OMDD meant in reference to the HSM 411.2 OMDD shredder. Initially I didn’t know for sure what the acronym meant. After a few minutes of research I figured it out. It stands for Optical Media Destruction Device.

The HSM 411.2 OMDD paper shredder is designed to destroy CDs, DVDs and other optical media. It does this by cutting the data down into 2.2 x 4mm particles. This is extremely small for optical media discs.

As far as I’m aware, the term OMDD is strictly used by HSM. In fact, I haven’t seen it referenced with any other shredder other than the 411.2.

As far as security is concerned, the HSM 411.2 OMDD is one of the most secure disc shredders around. It is designed to be used all day long, every day, without suffering any wear or tear.

I am personally a big fan of HSM and consider their line of optical and paper shredders to be some of the best around for businesses, government, DOD and military.
