SCM Group, a producer of industrial machinery and components for woodworking and advanced materials processing, added Gabbett Machinery, the leading Australian woodworking machinery distributor and service provider.
Gabbett Machinery will be the foundation of SCM Group Australia.
“Our goal with the new addition is to expand our business in this country,” SCM group woodworking machinery director Luigi De Vito said in a statement. “Though we have achieved deep market penetration selling classic machines and technological solutions to joinery shops – which make up the vast majority of woodworking companies in the Australian market – we now wish to expand our operations by offering the Australian woodworking industry our entire range of solutions, the most extensive in the industry, from machining centers and edgebanding machines to solid wood machining, timber construction systems, sanding and finishing solutions, not to mention our exclusive CMS machinery range for processing wood, plastic, glass, stone and advanced materials.
"The Australian market offers a significant growth potential, if we consider that in 2015 our Woodworking Machinery Division had (over) 60 percent annual growth in the Asia & Pacific region. With our new branch and consequent expansion of our offer, we plan to bolster our operations and increase our growth. Australian companies are looking for solutions with automated and highly flexible cell systems, which we can easily provide offering a wide range of competitive products.”
