Patrick Pozzi, managing partner at Superior Pellet Mills, tells Bioenergy Insight about the company’s revamping, an altered business strategy and how the US government could provide thought-through subsidy programmes for smaller companies.
Superior Pellet Mills is based in Montana in the US, at a site that had previously been run by Eureka Pellet Mills — which started in 1988, and was the first pellet mill in the North West US, according to Pozzi.
“As the market changed in 2012-2015, [Eureka] really struggled to keep lumber mills and pellet mills running, so they slowly sold out of them. My business partner and I got into it and started Superior Pellet Mills. We cannibalised the two Eureka Mill locations to one in the town of Superior, Montana,” he told Bioenergy Insight.
