Plessisville, Quebec, Canada, December 20th, 2023 – Carbotech Group is proud to announce the acquisition of a 14,000 sq. ft. plant in Roebuck, South Carolina, marking a major milestone in its American expansion. In perfect synergy with its growth strategy, the company plans to start operations at its new facilities as early as mid-January 2024, primarily to serve customers in the southern United States.
Better serving the United States
With this acquisition, Carbotech Group is strengthening its ability to quickly meet the needs of its American customers. A new local team of mechanical and automation technicians will also be created. Together with the plant, this will improve the manufacturing of Carbotech equipment and enable the storage of spare parts for Autolog and Carbotech equipment.
The plant is strategically located in the heart of the American South. It will also be home to a training centre to develop expertise on Carbotech and Autolog equipment so that it can reach its fullest potential.
We would like to take this opportunity to announce the appointment of Jon Comber as General Manager of the U.S. Operations. His extensive knowledge of Carbotech and Autolog products, as well as his impressive professional background in the sawmilling industry (including experience as a plant manager), make him the ideal person for the role.
Carbotech Group was born of Carbotech’s acquisition of Autolog. Together, the two specialists in their fields boast over 70 years of experience in comprehensive sawmill solutions for the wood industry.
