Thanks for replying honeyshack.

I tried Beemaid, however, they all get there filtered wax from Western Wax Works. When I called Western they said that they are currently shutdown, not taking orders, and don't think that they will start up again. I was sad and disappointed to hear that.

I tried MacGregor Wax Works awhile back, and they mentioned that they were under a commercial contract and no longer supplied wax to small companies.

Alberta Beeswx is too expensive.

Any other suggestions?

oohhh that is going to hurt where Mac gregor is concerned. We buy our white from him. I heard that his filtering tank for candle wax had needed repairs and unless he got a combined order of 5000# he was not fixing it. I have been patiently waiting for hubby to call him and find out what is up.

I talked with Mac Gregor Wax works yesterday. Because there has been such an outcry for the filtered wax, they will be repairing the filtering tanks during the shut down in May. Then they will again be processing filtered wax. I know that does not help you now, but by summer early fall of 2010 there should be wax again.

Hi,

a few years later! We have a commercial honey and wax rendering farm in the Southwest corner of Manitoba. We render beeswax for ourselves and other beekeepers in our area. Are you in need of pure beeswax?
