Mt. Taylor Machine, LLC (doing business as Mt. Taylor Manufacturing) began it’s operation as an industrial machine shop in 1999.  However, this family owned business started out as a wood moulding plant in 1965!  Wood moulding production ceased in 2010 but continual diversification brought about a wood recycling yard (Wood You Recycle!), a wood pellet plant, sawmill., and more.

While the Machine Shop services many industries, it also is instrumental in maintaining efficient operations at all in-house company divisions.  The remaining divisions create an environmentally friendly company unlike any we are aware of:  The sawmill produces products from trees selectively harvested from our local forests through forest restoration programs.  Any removed trees come from areas categorized by the USFS as FRCCIII (highly prone to catastrophic crown fires) solely for prevention of fires and bark beetle infestations.

Residual materials from the sawmill, such as sawdust, slabs, edgings and cut-offs are manufactured into animal bedding, garden mulch, garden bark, compost, wood pellets, and playground chips.

When it comes to wood pellets, we do something a bit different from other companies.  Wood You Recycle!, our Albuquerque based wood recycling yard, prevents approximately twelve million pounds of clean wood waste from being needlessly discarded in local land-fills.  This wood is delivered to our yard by conscientious consumers and local businesses.  Metal, bits of plastic or other undesirable material is removed and the clean wood is then ground to a small size.  This is blended with waste from the sawmill and subsequently converted to clean burning, premium grade wood pellets.

It is worth noting that no recycled wood is used when playground chips are made. Only clean, virgin wood from at-risk forests is used so that all playground material is certified safe. Mt. Taylor Manufacturing saves forests, saves landfills and creates clean alternative energy.  And in the background….an industrial machine shop supports it all and takes care of local industry needs as well.  “Talented Milling Of Wood And Steel” is not simply a tag line.  It is a way for Mt. Taylor Manufacturing to do good while doing well.
