jwc history1

JWC Environmental was started in 1973 in Santa Ana, California by father and son Joseph and Woodie Chambers. They invented the first dual-shafted waste grinder and eventually named it the Muffin Monster.

Today, JWCE has two divisions – our municipal group serves the wastewater treatment industry with the finest sewage grinders and fine screens. Our industrial division serves private corporations with custom designed and built waste shredders and separation systems.

We’ve shipped over 35,000 Monster waste grinders worldwide and our family of 150 employees are committed to providing leading technologies, services and value. We manufacture over 200 different versions of grinders and screens for sewage and sludge processing.

The Muffin Monster is legendary in many industries for power and reliability – it efficiently turns rags, rocks, branches, trash and debris into small particles so they flow easily through pumps and systems.

Over the last four decades we have built one of the best distributor and representative networks in the industry. We distribute products through a global network of 50 international distributors and 40 American representative firms. In addition, JWCE provides extensive sales and service support in North America through two regional service centers in Santa Ana, California and Buford, Georgia.

Our first factory was opened in 1973 in Santa Ana, California. In the 1990s we opened our Buford, Georgia manufacturing facility. In 2001 we opened our European manufacturing center in Cheshire, UK. And in 2007 we opened our Asia-Pacific operations in Hangzhou, China.
