“Many years ago, I was a young engineer with carpentry experience when I started MOReTENs and began building woodworking machinery,” said Bo Mårtensson. “I’m proud to see my products in workshops worldwide, and now we are very pleased to be joining the Wood-Mizer team, which will see our existing products being available to a much wider customer base and will also accelerate our capability to introduce new products to meet our customers’ needs.”
Beginning in March 2018, Wood-Mizer will offer the new range of moulders/planers through their distribution network. The latest acquisition of MOReTENs builds on Wood-Mizer’s position as a worldwide manufacturer and supplier of narrow band sawmills, now offering a full range of equipment that can seamlessly convert logs into dried lumber and finally into finished wood products – all backed by Wood-Mizer’s expertise and commitment to excellent customer service.
