Wood-Mizer opens regional office in Thailand

Wood-Mizer’s new office in Phuket, Thailand

Wood-Mizer’s presence across Asia has expanded with the recent opening of a corporate office in Phuket, Thailand to serve and support the sawmilling industry and timber professionals throughout Asia.

Wood-Mizer is a sawmill and woodworking equipment manufacturer whose footprint in Asia expanded Since 2014. The new office, managed by Rob Moxham, will support and serve the company’s network of dealers as well as its customers throughout in the region.

“With easy access to every country in Asia, our Phuket location allows us to better serve the Asia market,” said Robert Moxham, regional director, Wood-Mizer Asia. “The support that we now provide from Thailand will ensure that our new machines, parts and blades inventories and supply chains work optimally. The main goal is to bring availability and convenience to our customers.

“After-sales service support is also a major priority for Wood-Mizer. Our new Thailand location will also ensure that our other various Asia locations are meeting our industry-leading standards for customer service and technical support.”  

Wood-Mizer’s corporate director for emerging markets, JJ Oelofse, also commented that Moxham’s years of sales and operational experience with Wood-Mizer will bring added value to the region: “We’re excited about the new development, and we’re looking forward to extending our service levels and adding to sawmillers’ success in Asia.”
