Wood-Mizer will again take part in the 14th Timber Industry & Forest Resources Management Fair LAS-EXPO that will held in Kielce March 7-9th.
The main exhibits Wood-Mizer will be displaying are the LT40 sawmill and their range of blade sharpeners and setters, i.e. the BMS500 industrial sharpener and the BMT250 dual toothsetter, as well as the full range of Wood-Mizer blades.
Poland remains one of the most important markets for Wood-Mizer since the European headquarter of the company was established in the Polish city of Kolo in 1990. Recently the production area was almost doubled by adding a new building of 4,250m2 which accommodates the sawmill production, the purchasing department, conference rooms, a modern canteen, and employee break and locker rooms.
"At our European headquarters in Koło, Poland, the operations are almost identical to those in Indianapolis," shares Richard Vivers, the President of Wood-Mizer Holding. "We have approximately the same number of staff, we do R&D, sales, manufacturing of sawmills and blades. So it is like two mirror images of the same company, where all the functions performed in Indianapolis, USA, where the company started, are now also performed at the European headquarters here in Poland. Our facility in Poland is operated by a very energetic, well-educated, determined workforce, and it was an excellent decision to choose Poland to be our base of operations for Europe, Africa and much of Asia," concludes Richard Vivers.
The LAS-EXPO trade fair is a traditional meeting place of specialists both in wood processing industry and in forestry. These two sectors closely cooperate in wood material acquisition and processing. 2014 will mark the 14th edition of the LAS-EXPO show in Kielce.
