SCM to bring frontline wood innovation to the 26th edition of Xylexpo

This year too, the leader for secondary woodworking technologies, SCM is to play a key role at the 26th Xylexpo Trade Fair, to take place at the Milano-Rho Exhibition Centre, 8 – 12 May, 2018.

With an exhibition booth of over 3,000 square metres, located in Hall 2, the Rimini-based Group, boasting double-digit growth over the last two years, both in global terms and with regard to just the wood sector, confirms its decades-long commitment to the Italian and European markets. SCM has some key, forward-looking goals in store for the Milan trade show, likely to have a strong impact on the development of the entire sector. Luigi De Vito, SCM Division and Group Sales&Marketing Director, comments: “Xylexpo represents one of the key international events for us in which to showcase technological innovation at the highest level. Having reliable, integrated and competitive production systems in a context where economic recovery is well underway will prove to be strategic and decisive both for large industrial groups and for the entire supply chain. SCM has always been a solid and reliable partner for the whole wood technology sector; with this clear mission our presence will manifest itself through the widest range of solutions able to function and interact according to Industry 4.0 criteria”.

SCM’s leadership in the market sector is corroborated by the excellent results achieved in 2017. At the end of the year, the Rimini-based Group recorded a turnover of 650 million euro, with double-digit growth compared to the previous year regarding both turnover and order backlog also in the wood sector, and a continuous increase in recruitment, which led to a total headcount of over 3,500 staff, operating both in Italy and in the 20 overseas branches.

A strategic driver behind this unstoppable growth achieved by SCM has to be the R&D activities that have led to creating industrial technological solutions increasingly able to ensure quality improvement, cost reduction and greater efficiency thanks to flexible and reliable processes, offering significant savings to customers in maintenance, floor space, time and labour costs.

In line with market demands, SCM’s smart innovation project continues, a tangible application of the “Smart Manufacturing” concept. The goal is to make life as simple as possible for the customer, from small carpentry workshops to the large woodworking industries, in both wood panel processing and solid wood processing, enhancing creativity, reducing and simplifying processing times, facilitating the transition towards “mass customisation” and raising competitiveness on the markets.
