Gabbett Machinery, Australia’s leading supplier of professional woodworking and aluminium machinery, is proud to announce its incorporation with SCM Group to become SCM Group Australia. With a working relationship spanning over more than two decades, the decision to make the transition to operate as SCM Group Australia was a natural progression for the two organisations.
Making the official announcement at the recent AWISA 2016 Exhibition, SCM Group Australia have committed to a high growth plan in Australia for the immediate future, with a focus on automation and improved production processes.
Mr Luigi De Vito, SCM Group Woodworking Machinery Division Director, explains “Our goal is to offer the Australian woodworking industry our entire range of solutions, the most extensive in the industry: from machining centres 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.”
SCM Group Australia will continue to offer all current product ranges including FOM Industrie, Holytek and TigerStop. To ensure our Australian customers continue to receive the same level of service they have come to expect, all of our sales, technical and admin services will remain as they have always been.
Our customers will be able to benefit from increased stock and availability of fast moving items for both machinery and spare parts, along with a streamlined service response with direct access to the SCM Group worldwide network and support. SCM Group Australia has committed to expanding our service departments to even further reduce response times.
SCM Group Australia will operate with Barry Gabbett as President, and Lee Gabbett as Managing Director and Member of the Board.
“This new direction will have a positive impact for all our customers. Now as part of the worldwide SCM Group, we can offer direct access to the full complement of SCM Group products, from entry level machines right through to full turn key production systems – all from one organisation”, states Lee Gabbett.
