Allegheny’s story begins over 40 years ago, when John Wagner began building a shredder to out-perform the 7.5 Hp. paper shredder that was the most powerful at that time. In 1971, he introduced the first high capacity shredder in the industry – a 15 Hp. – paving the way for increasingly powerful machines that led up to Allegheny’s current 300 Hp. model. From those earliest days, Allegheny Shredders has been the icon of the shredding industry, widely acknowledged as the world leader in information destruction.
