Gabbett Machinery, the leading Australian woodworking machinery distributor and service provider, joins the group to become SCM Group Australia.

For the SCM Group the incorporation of their Australian distributor month of July is a natural consolidation of 20 years of collaboration with the Gabbett family.

Thanks to this partnership, SCM Group Australia can rely on an extremely widespread territorial presence, with offices in five locations – Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth – and a staff of 55 professionals.

SCM Group is to continue its collaboration with Barry Gabbett, president, and Lee Gabbett, managing director and member of the board.

By completing this operation the group can now consolidate and boost its market share in Australia, as Luigi De Vito, SCM Group Woodworking Machinery Division director, explains: "Our goal with the new addition is to expand our business in this country.

"Though we have achieved deep market penetration selling classic machines and technological solutions to joinery shops – which make up the vast majority of woodworking companies on the Australian market – we now wish to expand our operations by offering the Australian woodworking industry our entire range of solutions, the most extensive in the industry."
