    For those of you that have been following the DTV Shredder, you will have noticed some incredibly positive changes over the past 18 months. For starters, BPG Werks was restructured in late 2015 resulting in the primary investors taking control and ownership of the company. In early 2016, BPG Werks was officially dissolved and DTV Motor Corporation was created soon after. Over the next year, a complete DTV Shredder redesign was underway where the Shredder was significantly improved for the launch of the new 2017 DTV Shredder Model.

    The 2017 model was the first DTV Shredder available for sale in North America, but that hasn't slowed down Shredder Development. For 2018 there are a series of small but incremental improvements in the Shredder, the zero turn system is a particular stand out to me. To see just how far the Shredder has come look at the progress chart from 2016 to 2018. As part of the 2018 changes the price has also been significantly dropped, with an MSRP of $4,499.00 USD, we'll be seeing a lot of new Shredder owners on the forum soon.

    Innovation
    The DTV Shredder was created by the brilliant mind of master machinist, Ryan Fairhead who designed and built the first DTV Shredder prototype in 2008 from his initial drawings in 2005. Today, Ryan is DTV’s Vice President of Research and Development and is overseeing several new exciting innovative technologies at the prototyping and testing stages.

    New Culture
    DTV Motor Corporation is building a world class service culture. With a new online parts and accessories catalog and a first use guide all available from the refreshed https://www.dtvmotorcorp.com. Buying a 2018 Shredder now comes with service and support from DTV's team.

    Todd Clarke, the new CEO of DTV Motor Corporation saw the lake of customer support as something that needed urgent help when he took over the company in 2017 - “When I arrived at the company, I quickly realized that significant improvements were required in numerous areas - mainly in the area of service delivery”. “Today we exceed customers expectations at every touch point to ensure first call resolution and we always deliver on expectations”. ”I am very much a hands-on leader and expect the same every day from all of our leaders and their team members”. ” It is this culture of excellence that will drive our success for many years to come”.
