Company History

Prior to 1990 the company only supplied bulk shavings to the poultry and equine industry. The company began bagging equine pine bedding in 1990 and discontinued the bulk operations in 1995. In 2003 W. W. Culp, Inc. acquired the company. In 2004 the company was split into three operating divisions and Southern Shavings Company, Inc. was born.

In 2005 the company purchased and relocated to a 70,000 square foot facility in Cherryville, NC. This move enabled the company to be able to store more product and better meet its customer’s needs. That same year the company added an additional packaging line which doubled its production capacity.

In 2007 and 2008 the company and its suppliers experienced a great shortage of quality raw material which led to the decision to build its own production facility. Southern Shavings Company opened a state of the art manufacturing facility in December, 2008. This enabled the company to meet the demand for its products for the forseeable future. The plant was built on 12 acres and in a manner that would enable us to quickly double its capacity when needed. The addition of this facility also gave us the ability to produce a very consistent product with the desired amount of fines to insure maximum absorption.

In 2009 the company added a third packaging line to enable it to dramatically increase its volume in cedar bedding.

The company directs its focus toward quality products and reliable service to customers.
