History of CEM Machine
Carthage, New York.
CEM Machine, Inc. (CEM) was formed in April of
2000, by Mark Robinson and Richard Mayo. Mr. Mayo
had for many years been manager of international
sales and Mr. Robinson the chief engineer for various large pulp & paper industry equipment manufacturers.
Facilities and equipment: In May of 2000, CEM purchased an 80,000 Ft2 (7,400 M2) metal-working machine shop in Carthage, N.Y., as well as a number of new, used and reconditioned metal-working machines, equipping the shop for large machinery manufacturing for the new century.
Staffing: Since the region had an abundance of skilled workers who were knowledgeable in chipper design and manufacture, CEM immediately recruited an exceptionally experienced staff (see “People” below and on separate web page) and began production operations, providing new and repaired parts and service for large whole log chippers and other large machines.
