SCM Group opens West Coast facility

leave a comment »

SCM Group North America opened its new West Coast facility in Carson, California, on June 3 with top SCM officials from Italy in attendance and a host of demonstrations and presentations.

Andrea Aureli, SCM chief executive officer, and Luigi De Vito, director of SCM’s machinery division, came from Italy to join Giuseppe Riva, CEO for SCM’s North American operations, in officially opening the new 20,000-square-foot facility at 933 E. Sandhill Ave., Carson, California. Designed to serve the states from Montana to New Mexico and west to the Pacific Coast, the new facility features a 5,000-square-foot showroom with machines under power, as well as offices and warehouse space.

Aureli said 2014 was a “very good year” for SCM Group, posting more than $500 million in sales. “Our strong financial position allows us to invest for the future,” Aureli said. Not only is the company opening the new California facility, but it just opened a new operation in Malaysia.

De Vito echoed Aureli’s comments, noting that SCM’s wood division alone did sales of 300 million Euros last year. He said sales in North America topped $100 million, making it the “first market” for SCM Group. He spoke about the thinking behind the West Coast expansion, saying, “How can we be as much as possible close to our customers? We need to be local. We need to provide better service every hour of every day. We can do that better locally.”

De Vito said the West Coast represents 40 percent of SCM’s business in North America. “We want to double that,” he said. Driving that growth, the new facility will offer training, demonstrations of machines under power, in-stock machines and replacement parts for faster delivery to dealers and customers.

Riva, SCM CEO for North America, said the company already has 15,000 machine installed on the West Coast, so it was natural to develop the new facility to respond and grow that market. It was noted that the new facility is just 12 miles from the Port of Long Beach and should greatly reduce shipping costs and times for West Coast customers.

John Gangone, a long-time SCM leader and now CEO and present of the company’s Advanced Material enterprise, said SCM’s involvement on the West Coast dates back to the 1960s. He said the company has sold “well over half a billion dollars” of machines in the region and attributed past success to a strong distribution network.

Other speakers reported on plans to use the new facility to boost service response and technical support. Additional presentations covered machinery financing and software offerings.

But not all of the event was centered on SCM Group’s machinery sales. Company officials took time out to highlight community outreach efforts, presenting a check for $25,000 to Heartfelt Cardiac Projects to help buy equipment for early detection of cardiac problems particularly in young people.

Company officials also emphasized an ongoing and invigorated partnership with the woodworking program at nearby Cerritos College. The effort will involve sizable donations of equipment and training to boost the school’s professional level education programs.

An order worth 15 million Euros, the inauguration of the new Kuala Lumpur branch, participation in the next Interzum Guangzhou, and interaction with manufacturers all over the world have led to success for SCM Group.

A notable order worth 15 million Euros has recently been signed with a large Chinese industrial group. Turnkey systems (highly automated lines, but also traditional machines) that will be installed in three production units – one for furniture making, another for constructing hollow-core doors, and the third for the painting processes.

Beginning with the new Kuala Lumpur site in Malaysia (alongside the Singapore offices and various sites in China), for a local market interested in SCM solutions for small and medium-sized companies.  Machines like the “Tech Z2” entry-level processing centre, the “Cyflex” vertical borer, the “Olimpic K560” edgebanding machine, and the “Pratika” processing centre with nesting table.

“Doors and Windows” technology days a success

leave a comment »

Over 300 door and window manufacturers gathered in Rimini, Italy on February 5 – 7, 2015 to experience first-hand the technological innovation content and performance of SCM Group’s Xilog Maestro software.

The “Doors and Windows Technology Days” delivered on its promise and turned out to be a huge success due to the training and idea exchange opportunities that took place for the many door and window manufacturers who descended upon Rimini from all over Italy and many foreign countries, particularly from North, Central and Eastern Europe, the U.S., Japan, Malaysia and North Africa.

Over 300 businesses attended the event: from small artisans who wanted to familiarize themselves with numeric control technology to large businesses that were interested in larger production volumes, new finishes and higher overall process quality. All this was possible thanks to the presence of a wide range of solutions, which has always been the SCM Group’s hallmark.
