SCM Turkey headquarters

SCM, global producer of secondary woodworking machinery, further strengthens its presence in the Turkish market with the opening of SCM Turkey (SCM Türkiye), located in the Istanbul area. The investment in this new subsidiary, with 100% Italian capital as of 2021, is aimed at providing direct, widespread sales and technical assistance to all the businesses in the industry, from the artisan right up to major industries, and at each stage of customer relations, from pre- to after-sales.

SCM has served the Turkısh market for many years, working with important distributor companies of the country, in order to supply a wide variety of products and services for all the woodworking application sectors: furniture industry, windows and doors production, timber construction and artisan businesses.

The new opening of SCM Turkey is a further step forward in this long time partnership, and has been conceived to meet the requirements of an ever growing and even more specialised market.

“Local businesses’s demands have significantly changed in recent years, and the importance of automation and innovation has become undeniable,” said Umut Erkan, country manager of SCM Turkey. “Woodworking manufacturers, and in particular local companies in the furnishing industry, are investing heavily to modernise their factories and make their processes more digital, efficient and flexible. In line with these changes, SCM decided to invest in Turkey in order to be even closer to customers, supporting them in their new business projects with “turnkey” and state-of-the-art technologies, and providing an even more direct after-sales service.”

As a machine manufacturer with a wide product range for the entire woodworking industry, SCM intends to add its high-quality service to its product excellence, in line with the latest market’s requirements.

The opening of SCM Turkey is part of a strategic commercial plan based on consistent, steady investments aimed at guaranteeing an ever more widespread professional presence worldwide, and further strengthening its subsidiaries and dealers network team to ensure the best skills dedicated to all technologies and software applications linked to the panel, solid wood and joinery processes.
