About Us

A company engineered to help you succeed.

BE&E was created to ensure a total focus on the rapidly expanding biomass industry. Today, we provide complete, customized solutions for processing, conveyance, storage, and receiving for a variety of industries around the globe.

Providing solutions to fit every client’s needs often requires some degree of customization. Whether we are building a new facility or installing machines into an existing one, we make sure our machines fit your needs perfectly. Our 3D design process allows us to customize our products to each situation. By using 3D, we can also “test” machines and ideas out before they are built. This leads to perfectly customized machines — custom machines mean more efficient operation.

We are so confident in our designs that we offer the industry’s leading warranty on every machine. With products such as our unique push/pull floor system, screens, drag chain conveyors, horizontal silos, and an array of other products, we have a machine fit for any task. In an industry that is developing and changing at an incredible rate, you can be confident BE&E is designing to keep pace. Our quality craftsmanship means our machines will deliver great results for years.

We’ve developed world-class machines that contribute to the success of many industries, such as biomass, lumber, wood pellet, briquette, power generation, ethanol, and animal feed industries. Examples include:

  • SMART Conveyors™
  • SMART Containers
  • SMART Floors — Custom-designed push/pull floor systems (a better alternative than upright silos)
  • Live floor bins and bunkers
  • Log decks, log sorters, log trimmers, log transfers
  • Chip screens
  • Receiving bins
  • Roller debarkers

As machine designers, many of our best ideas were actually based on seeds planted by customers. Sometimes it was just a hint like “I wish someone made a machine that could …” Other times, customers came to us with very specific demands, demands for which we were more than happy to accommodate and develop a solution. The idea to form the company was born from a very similar situation. A customer with several of our machines from Veneer Services®, our sister company, said to us one day, “You have so many great products that the biomass industry could use. You are missing opportunities.”

We look forward to educating you about the advantages that BE&E offers. If you are interested in our products, let us know how we can improve your business with our machines and solutions.

Talk to us about your needs or challenges in material handling, storage, processing, and receiving. We are confident that our experienced team will create a profitable and efficient solution.

None of this would be possible—from genius product engineering to deep, hands-on experience—without the knowledge, education, devotion, and passion of our team. BE&E boasts top-notch engineers, skilled fabricators, experienced servicemen, and technical salespeople with backgrounds in managing mills and industrial projects. Our team knows how to design, build, and install, and they know how to do it well.

As a team, we bring our diverse backgrounds and talents to form a whole. Our confidence comes from knowing that where one of us is learning, another is teaching, and when we teach, we learn even more. And when we learn more, our customers benefit in every aspect.
