The year was 1957 when Norval Morey, a local sawmill operator, took the first risky step into manufacturing armed with a patent for a portable pulp wood debarker. The Morbark Debarker Company was born that year, and nobody in Winn, Michigan, could have predicted the growth that the company would experience over the next five decades.
Morbark, Inc., based in Winn, Michigan, builds equipment that creates opportunities for customers serving the forestry, recycling, sawmill, biomass, landscaping/irrigation, rental and tree care markets. Innovating and building durable and high-performance equipment for more than 50 years, Morbark offers a full line of flails, disc and drum tree chippers, brush chippers, horizontal and tub grinders, stump grinders and more. Morbark equipment helps customers harvest, process and convert organic materials into valuable, usable and environmentally sound products. The company offers worldwide sales, support and service through an independent, authorized dealer network.
Looking to leverage the company’s ever-expanding capabilities in product development, manufacturing, and dealer distribution, Morbark acquired the Boxer Equipment line of mini-skid steers in January 2013. The line of mini- skid steers includes a dedicated trencher, and a 300, 400, and 500 series that are built to handle a full complement of over 50 universal compact utility attachments.

In a market that is reliant on the processing of materials, it is crucial to own a piece of equipment that adds to your success and helps you create opportunities better than anyone else.
