Halverson Wood Products HWP-150 Firewood Processor

The Halverson Story

After spending most of his life in and around the industry, our founder, Glen Halverson, set out to create machines that would maximize his time, equipment, and output — and it all started in his garage.


Glen Halverson begins designing a firewood processor in his garage to create an economical, easy-to-use, and dependable machine for forestry professionals.


Glen partners with Hahn Machinery to launch his initial model, the HFP160, marking his transition from inventor to manufacturer.


After refining his vision and design, Glen introduces the HWP-140 and establishes Halverson Wood Products in Pine River, MN.


Halverson Wood Products purchases a building in Pine River and moves manufacturing operations to the new facility.


Halverson Wood Products purchases additional property across the street from their existing facility, acquiring a plasma table, press brake, welders, and a paint booth to bring all metal fabrication in-house.


Halverson launches the HWP-120, a small-scale processor designed for lower volume firewood processing for average homeowners.


Ingenuity reaches new heights with the launch of the HWP-125GS Grapple Saw and Inverted Splitter, marking a transition from manufacturer to industry leader and setting the stage for the next chapter of innovation at Halverson Wood Products.


Today, you’ll find Halverson Wood Products worldwide. Our team continues to grow and innovate everyday, and we love what we do. Creating the best firewood processors money can buy is an honor.
