SmartMill breaks into the Eurozone with the sale of a Smart Trim system in Germany.

Jean Bérubé, president of SmartMill, confirmed the signing of a new contract that includes the sale and installation of the Smart Trim system to Ante-Holz GmbH, the largest timber producer in Germany.


“This innovative trimming technology, a Quebec invention, is already benefiting of a significant success in Canada and the United States. Today, I am very proud to confirm the breakthrough of the Smart Trim in the European market, hand by hand with one of the largest players in the wood industry in Europe,” adds Mr. Bérubé.


This new partnership confirms SmartMill’s position as a leader in the forest industry with a unique offer of technological solutions for sawmills.
