SCM continues to make investments within the most strategic international markets. The latest is the opening of a new SCM subsidiary in Trzin, near Ljubljana in Slovenia, in January 2024.

It is being opened to directly follow clients in both the Slovenian and Serbian markets, preserving their local characteristics and identities. In addition, it will work alongside and provide even more efficient support to the dealers already operating in Croatia and Bosnia.

The new subsidiary, SCM’s first in the Balkans, will become a benchmark for the entire region where, for several years now, the wood-furnishing industry has recorded a more than positive trend and includes businesses that are increasingly technologically advanced.

The facility will have an exclusive 1,500 square metre Technology Centre offering a wide and varied range of the latest SCM innovations, with machinery and services strongly in line with the production requirements of this market.

SCM will also be able to rely on a team of technicians and sales engineers who are highly specialised in all the application fields of secondary wood processing: from the joinery workshop to large furniture industries, right up to windows and doors and timber construction which is recording strong and continuous growth throughout the region.

Being able to interact directly with the SCM team also means taking a closer look at, and selecting from, an exclusive offer of technologies and software which represents the widest range of wood processing solutions internationally.

There are also considerable advantages for customer care. The client can take advantage of more punctual after-sales support both with regard to technical maintenance and management of spare parts, as well as having rapid access to the numerous digital services enabled by SCM’s IoT platform, Maestro connect for an ever more efficient proactive and predictive assistance.

“With the opening of this new branch, businesses in the industry will benefit from an all-round commercial and technical partnership - says Lorenzo Trolese, SCM Country Manager for Balkans area. "Our team, which will continue to grow, even in the coming months, with the addition of new sales and services resources, can provide the client with all the support, consulting and training needed to optimise its production processes. This represents a huge leap in quality for this market because it can continue along a direct line and an ever more efficient and direct service, from pre to post sales”.
