Vecoplan at Eurobois: A strong partner for the wood processing industry

In the heart of France

Eurobois 2024 will take place in Chassieu/Lyon from 6th to 9th of February. It is the leading event for the wood processing industry in France. For Vecoplan, this trade fair is an opportunity to introduce its young team from the new branch in Alsace to the industry. The site provides customers with direct and rapid on-site support for complete processing lines and the associated services – from France for France.

Vecoplan AG has had its own Vecoplan France branch in Alsace, near Colmar since 2023. Four employees from the sales and service departments currently work there. Since France is an important and rapidly growing market, particularly for the wood and biomass sectors, the machine manufacturer intends to continuously expand the French team and extend the base and associated warehouse. In recent years, Vecoplan has supplied and commissioned several hundred machines and systems for these industries, with a focus on complete processing lines for waste wood from sawmills, plus entire systems for processing, conveying and storage technologies used in various biomass power plants.

With Vecoplan France, customers benefit from short distances and personal contacts who know the market and speak the same language. The machine manufacturer also provides comprehensive support in the form of additional service points and the rapid supply of spare & wear parts, ensuring that even urgent, short-term operations can be carried out smoothly. The services include emergency and repair services for customers, inspections and maintenance. The short distances enabled by the new Service Center also offer many additional advantages, so the team can now support existing customers even more intensively and in their local language. The machine manufacturer also offers the powerful Vecoplan Smart Center (VSC) digitalization concept for the best possible support. This enables digital services such as online commissioning, remote service and access to a media database.

The Vecoplan experts at the trade fair will inform potential customers about the new branch and the benefits it can provide for them.
