SCM Group has signed a collaboration agreement with the well-known Austrian dealer Handl to open a new era for Group's presence in the Alpine country, which has always been an important market of SCM technologies.
Handl is specialised in the distribution of advanced technologies for the woodworking, plastic and aluminium industry, with 16 area managers and more than 20 highly specialised technicians. The agreement is for the distribution, service and technical support in the eight main Austrian regions, apart from Vorarlberg, for the entire range of the group's hi-tech brands.
Luigi De Vito, Scm Group machine division director, was very enthusiastic about the new agreement: "For our projects strengthening our presence in certain markets is significant. We are very satisfied to be able to collaborate with a prestigious partner like Handl; market leader and renowned for the excellent service it provides to its customers. This allows us to look at the Austrian market with renewed confidence and with the certainty of being able to increase our market share".
Peter Handl, director and owner of Handl, was equally explicit in commenting the agreement: “Handl has always been synonymous with service, skills and experience. This approach has allowed us to reach a strong position in the market.
Our capital is our collaborators and our daily investment is in training our technicians.
In SCM Group we have found a new partner that offers an added value in terms of product range, with a broad option of solutions. They strongly believe in the research and development of new products, especially in the most innovative applications for machining
solid wood, where SCM has a very strong and long tradition besides the technologies for new materials.
For us it has become fundamental to have a direct contact with the specialists and technicians that design and build each machine, because increasingly often we provide our clients with specialised solutions that have been customised to their specific requirements”.
