The Italian Group SCM and the Swedish company Randek AB are joining forces in a new global co-operation, where the aim is to be a one-stop supplier for the complete timber construction process, offering a wide range of solutions for the production of beams, walls, timber frame and X-lam/cross-laminated timber panels.

The new partnership aims to further expand and strengthen the range of technological solutions already provided by both players across the globe and complementary to one another: SCM, that continues innovating to offer advanced numeric control machining centres capable of processing all kinds of different construction elements requested by today's market, and Randek AB, well-known worldwide for its high performance innovative technologies in the prefabricated house sector.

The partnership will also allow each company to be able to offer the other party's products, making it possible an offering of integrated solutions, which otherwise would not have been feasible, except in the long term.

“Our global partnership with Randek AB significantly and strategically expands our offer of products and services for timber construction, guaranteeing our customers access to a wide range of specific technological solutions dedicated to machining prefabricated walls with increased production efficiency and a better return on investment,” confirmed Tommaso Martini, SCM manager for timber construction business.

“An agreement with a global leading group like SCM, with sound industrial expertise and an extensive international distribution network, means we can further strengthen our presence on the most relevant markets, offering the customer an even more direct, widespread service,” said Ola Lindh, CEO from Randek AB.

Randek AB and SCM will develop and deliver equipment for one of the most advanced house factories for production of modules in wood and steel frame. The customer consulted Bosch Engineering and Production Services to perform a thorough analysis of potential suppliers.
