Georgia Baler & Compactor Waste Equipment Specialists / Sales & Service Support

Georgia Baler & Compactor specializes in waste and recycling equipment for a wide variety of customers across the United States. The company sells and distributes equipment from top manufacturers of waste equipment in the industry — providing balers, compactors and shredders of all types and sizes to fit their customer’s needs. In addition, they sell a complete line of other waste equipment including, conveyors, densifiers, lift trucks and hand trucks.

Georgia Baler’s factory trained technicians are always available to handle local service calls. Their in-house technicians are sent throughout the US to assist customers with installations, equipment removal and on-site repairs.

Many equipment breakdown issues are the result of routine maintenance that often goes unattended. Since those minimal preventive maintenance procedures can save costly downtime, the company offers a comprehensive Preventive Maintenance Program.

From its inception, Georgia Baler has worked with customers to rebuild outdated equipment to extend its working life and meet changing standards. They have earned a reputation as being among the best for remanufacturing used equipment.

To expedite service for their customers, Georgia Baler maintains parts for all brands of equipment. Their large inventory of parts for balers, compactors and roll-off trucks will fit all of your needs. They also stock refurbished parts for those hard-to-find items — and, upon request, will rebuild worn cylinders and motors. They also receive and ship waste and recycling industry parts out on a daily basis.

A business relationship and partnership for over 14 years

Mike McDaniel, second generation owner and CEO of Georgia Baler, recalls that his father, Mack McDaniel, started the business out of their house. Today Georgia Baler & Container has grown to more than thirty-five employees and serves an extensive customer base that is spread across the U.S. — specializing in waste and recycling equipment and systems.

Georgia Balers’ first impression of c3controls was a good one. They found the c3 people extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the products they manufacture. After an initial conversation, c3 sent product samples to Georgia Baler for testing with their applications. That cemented their relationship in 2006 — and c3 has remained a valuable resource now for over 14 years.

"We're pleased to have a partnership with c3 — and we really feel like it is a partnership, because of the customer first approach." — Mike McDaniel, CEO

c3 provides controls that meet the needs of tough environments

The waste and recycling industry operates in harsh environments that is extremely rough on equipment and electronic devices. Many of the control products they purchased were not surviving in those adverse conditions. Georgia Baler found the c3controls products to be better designed and much sturdier than even the national brand controls they were using.

Mike referred to a specific example saying, “The c3 E-stop contains a large amount of brass, not plastic — and holds up better than anything we’ve used before.” Georgia Baler chooses c3controls products for both form and function — because the products perform well and are robust enough to withstand the unfriendly environment that exists around every panel box installation.

Georgia Baler uses the E-stop in installations for customers all across the US, including exceptionally large retailers — so, their equipment is installed at a wide variety of locations in all climates. Even competitors have asked what brand of E-stop and other components are used in their equipment — and that tells them that they’re providing the right controls for the job.

"If your competitors are asking where you're getting your control products, you know that you're providing the right controls for the job." — Mike McDaniel, CEO

Choosing c3 proved to be a good purchasing decision

Georgia Baler is currently using c3controls miniature circuit breakers, pilot devices, contactors, overload relays, starters, general-purpose relays, terminal blocks, and wire duct. Mike says that their purchasing experience and the ongoing communications with c3controls has been excellent. They are consistently kept informed regarding delivery for all back ordered parts — and know that c3 will fill those orders quickly and efficiently. In the rare instance that a product is out of stock, c3 is often able to find a different product as a solution to the company’s need.

The company has had an occasional damaged control returned by a customer for replacement — but with c3controls’ Lifetime Warranty the issue was quickly resolved. Regardless if the damage occurs at the customer’s facility or not, with the Lifetime Warranty c3controls never fails to replace parts promptly at no cost. Georgia Baler says with a 99% success rate, they are a happy customer and will continue to grow with c3controls.

Georgia Baler enjoys c3's value added benefits

The manufacturer direct relationship that Georgia Baler has with c3 is something the company particularly likes. Georgia Baler doesn’t like the time delay associated with distributors versus dealing directly with c3controls. They know that unlike with other brands, with c3 you don’t have to deal with a middleman. They also like that c3controls includes them in the testing of new products or asks for input when considering the development of a new control.

Georgia Baler thinks the advantage pricing that c3controls offers is a value-added benefit. At c3, it’s always been a customer first approach to business — something that Georgia Baler also strives for. They’re happy to be in a partnership with c3controls — and do really feel like it is a true partnership. Georgia Baler readily agrees that it would highly recommend c3controls to other companies.

The extensive product portfolio offered by c3 has proved to be a valuable advantage, as they use numerous different controls in their panel boxes. Over the course of 14 years of working with c3, they have been impressed by how their product selection has grown. “Over the last several years they’ve added quite a bit to their portfolio, which has helped us streamline our purchasing,” Mike stated. “I would say that c3 is a one stop solution for anyone’s control needs.”
