Vollmer of America has just announced a new business partnership with Burton Saw & Supply to better serve their customers and grow within the saw blade maintenance market in the saw mill industry.
Vollmer, the global market leader for grinding and erosion machines in woodworking and metalworking industries, has just announced a new business partnership with Burton Saw & Supply. Burton Saw & Supply – along with its affiliates Simonds International, Cut Technologies and BGR Saws – is the leading producer and marketer of cutting tools and related equipment for the primary wood fiber industry in North America. Due to Burton’s large presence within the saw mill industry, Vollmer of America has now established a close partnership to respond quickly to the market needs with proven and reliable solutions.
While Vollmer machines as well as spare part requests within the saw mill industry, will now be quoted and sold through Burton Saw & Supply, all installation, training, service and warranty work will still be handled by Vollmer of America.
“We believe that the partnership with Burton Saw & Supply will be very beneficial for all parties involved, not only in regards to streamlining communication channels, but most importantly for our customers as well who will now get to have a more frequent contact base and improved support system throughout the US and Canada”, states Shannon Fox, North American Sales Manager at Vollmer of America.
With more than 800 employees worldwide, the Vollmer Group which was founded in 1909, has established itself as the world market leader in grinding and erosion equipment. The recent launch of the new VLaser 270 has made Vollmer a full-line supplier of tool machining. The North American subsidiary currently counts 26 employees, 19 of which are based out of the Pittsburgh office. The other 7 are strategically located throughout the US to cover more ground in sales & service.
