Bandit Industries will spend all of 2018 celebrating its 35th anniversary at its mid-Michigan facility, with a world-wide dealer network, and with many thousands of customers spanning multiple industries.

Bandit Industries started out as Foremost Fabrications in a small one-room shop by Mike Morey Sr. and Diane Morey. The first chipper was a Model 100 Brush Bandit. That chipper caught on in the industry, backed by their commitment to quality and their customers. The chipper became so popular in the industry that most people knew Foremost Fabrications as “Bandit,” so in 1986, the name was changed officially to Bandit Industries.

Bandit has grown by leaps and bounds in the last 35 years, continually refining their machines, adding new models, new product lines, growing their dealer network and customer base. Today, over 60,000 Bandit machines are in use all around the world.
