Wood-Mizer has acquired the Swedish company, MOReTENs AB, placing a full range of popular 4-sided planer/moulders, table saws, spindle moulders, and CNC routers into Wood-Mizer’s globally available product range.

Founded in 1980, MOReTENs designs and manufactures a popular range of woodworking machinery which includes 4-sided planer/moulder combination models, spindle moulders, and a workshop table saw. In addition, MOReTENs also supplies high-end, CNC-controlled routers and log home building machinery.

“Throughout our history, Wood-Mizer has been committed to providing the best quality equipment to process logs into finished wood products,” said Wood-Mizer President and CEO Richard Vivers. “The affordable and versatile planer and moulder product lines from MOReTENs have been proven worldwide for decades, and are now backed by the high-quality service and support network customers expect from Wood-Mizer.”

The founder and owner of MOReTENs, Bo Mårtensson, has joined Wood-Mizer as the General Director of the factory in Ostersund, Sweden. The factory in Sweden marks Wood-Mizer’s fifth manufacturing plant throughout the world including three facilities in the USA and one in Poland.

“Many years ago, I was a young engineer with carpentry experience when I started MOReTENs and began building woodworking machinery,” said Bo Mårtensson. “I’m proud to see my products in workshops worldwide, and now we are very pleased to be joining the Wood-Mizer team, which will see our existing products being available to a much wider customer base and will also accelerate our capability to introduce new products to meet our customers’ needs.”

Beginning in March 2018, Wood-Mizer will offer the new range of planer/moulders through their distribution network. The latest acquisition of MOReTENs builds on Wood-Mizer's position as a worldwide manufacturer and supplier of narrow band sawmills, now offering a full range of equipment that can seamlessly convert logs into dried lumber and finally into finished wood products - all backed by Wood-Mizer's expertise and commitment to excellent customer service.

About Wood-Mizer

Since 1982, Wood-Mizer has earned the reputation as a leading wood processing equipment manufacturer with a strong legacy from its innovative sawmilling products. From forest to final form, Wood-Mizer offers an extensive line of equipment including narrowband portable and industrial sawmills, wideband sawmilling equipment, resaws, edgers, kilns, planer/moulders, firewood processing equipment, pallet recycling equipment, material handling equipment, bandsaw blades, and blade maintenance equipment for woodworking and forestry hobbyists and professionals all over the world.

As the leading supplier of thin-kerf, narrowband portable and industrial sawmills, Wood-Mizer has significantly broadened its reach into the industrial sawmilling market. With the introduction of Wood-Mizer TITAN, the company now offers a full line of wideband sawmill equipment that is designed to improve timber production rates and elevate a sawmill’s operational efficiency. This new product line is a result of a purchase agreement with Multisaw, a well-established manufacturer of wideband sawmill equipment since 1990.

The Wood-Mizer TITAN Line

The Wood-Mizer TITAN line includes wideband primary and secondary breakdown sawmills and resaws as well as circular saw edgers, multirips, optimizing edgers, manual board edgers, and material handling equipment. The move will add further momentum to Wood-Mizer’s ability to offer innovative high capacity equipment and broaden the corporation’s global reach.

“Our well-known narrowband industrial range has helped wood producers worldwide cut costs and raise yields,” says Richard Vivers, President and CEO of Wood-Mizer. “But that is just one piece of a very big market. With Wood-Mizer TITAN, we will serve the high-throughput needs of industrial operations with our established network of locations and commitment to customer support throughout the world.”

TITAN wideband sawmill equipment has proven its advantages in the most demanding markets in the world. Customers, Patula Product Sawmill in South Africa, utilize the TITAN system to produce high-throughput of structural timber. Patula’s operation consists of a TITAN twin vertical bandsaw, TITAN double arbor circular multirip, TITAN twin head resaw, and two TITAN manual board edging systems. “We wanted high production wideband sawmilling technology that we could rely on to cut the quality that we want and with enough additional capacity available to grow production into the future,” said Phillip Anderson of Patula Product Sawmill. “This is exactly what we’ve now achieved,” added Troy Cooper of Patula Product Sawmill. “In the last month, we have increased throughput again by 27%.”

The Wood-Mizer Product Line

TITAN wideband machines will greatly expand Wood-Mizer’s range, which will now consist of two distinct product lines, each geared towards the specific volume and budget requirements of the end-user.

- Wood-Mizer’s portable and industrial sawmill line continues to provide narrowband sawmilling equipment for entry level to professional and industrial operations.
- Wood-Mizer’s TITAN products are strongly-built wideband sawmilling equipment for high-throughput industrial sawmilling applications.

Each TITAN product is designed to operate as standalone equipment for existing sawmilling lines or to form an entire sawmilling line that can be customized to the requirements of the end-user. The TITAN line provides for primary and secondary log breakdown across a range of log diameters varying from 4” to 24” (100-600 mm). In addition, Wood-Mizer will be offering wideband blades soon for use on TITAN machines with blade widths up to 6” (150 mm).
