What Fecon Customers are Saying

"We work in harsh conditions and equipment reliability is a major concern for us, we haven’t had to do a thing to the Fecon heads but grease them. We’ve had nothing ever go wrong with the Fecon head, which is really important when you’re working in the remote regions of the forest."

Fire Break Management Contractor,

What Makes Up Fecon

Many of our loyal and satisfied customers tell us it's different doing business with Fecon. What is the Fecon difference exactly? It’s hard to say, but we work hard to understand our customers’ needs, and provide real value. We build specialized equipment — machines that uniquely fit the conditions in which you run and operate them — and we take pride in providing a high level of service. We always have. See below for our company history, core values, and recent awards.


    Our roots are in forestry mulching. But we have also branched out into drilling equipment and wood-to-energy equipment. As we’ve grown and expanded product offerings with whole new solutions, one thing has remained unchanged: Fecon is a company that stands firmly behind its products. 


    • Fecon first started in 1992 in Evendale, Ohio.


    • The company began as a manufacturing operation to meet the needs of the Organic Resource Recovery Industry in North America.


    • In 2004, Fecon moved locations to a new, state-of-the-art 56,00 sq. ft. manufacturing facility in Lebanon, Ohio.


    • In 2008, Fecon expanded its manufacturing operations by an additional 55,000 sq. ft.


    • Fecon launched the flagship FTX600 mulching tractor in 2011.


    • In March of 2012, Fecon celebrated an impressive 20 years in the industry. As we fondly reflect, our focus is on the future and on what the next 20 years may bring, both for the company and for the industry.


    • In 2014 Fecon has acquired an additional 40,000 sq. ft. in manufacturing space. This facility is adjacent to Fecon’s existing factory and offers an area for future expansion.


    Today, we have a deep and differentiated product line. Also, we have representatives on every continent. And, at this milestone in our history, Fecon has proudly supplied the industry with over 7,500 mulcher heads—and counting!


    Fecon will create a diversified business that extends its dominant lead globally in vegetation management and natural resource recovery equipment through new product innovation.


    Fecon will have global recognition as a leader in vegetation management and natural resource recovery equipment.


    Fecon will pioneer the use of new technologies within forestry mulching, vegetation management, oil & gas, construction, and environmental markets.
