Bandsaw Producer Metamob Relocates to New Headquarters

November 10, 2016 – Bandsaw Producer Metamob Relocates to New Headquarters

Metamob

European bandsaw producer Metamob has relocated into a new facility combining production and commercial activities under one roof. The new facility with 50,000 square feet of space houses new production equipment from Iseli capable of meeting the increased demands from USA markets.

Earlier this year Metamob formally announced an exclusive distribution agreement with Union Grove Saw & Knife. Under the terms of this agreement, Union Grove handles all sales and service of bandsaw blades produced by Metamob in the U.S.

Istvan Hutton co-founded Metamob in 1994 to meet demand for woodworking tools in their local markets. In 1997 the company started producing various configurations of extremely high quality bandsaw and frame saw blades at competitive prices. Professional sharpening services followed in the same year. Today production is extremely focused on the niche market of wide and narrow bandsaw blades for the sawmill industry.

The new facility is the cumulative efforts of many individuals but special thanks was given to Production manager and Head Engineer Vasile Sav whom with support from engineer Oana Silaghi developed detailed plans for the facility layout and relocation. The move was officially complete with a cerimonal opening in October attended by nearly 100 employees of the operation.

Metamob has the largest installed base of Iseli machines, world renown as the premium basis for bandsaw production globally. Hutton expressed, ”Customers Metamob can now expect an even higher quality and delivery time as a result of consolidating all operations under one roof.”

”To further complement our growing demand, we are now able to inventory larger amounts of raw material in various sizes to support the U.S. market demands,” Hutton added.

Union Grove

Union Grove Saw and Knife, Inc. was founded in 1983 by Ed Bissell. Today it services over 300 customers. Most importantly the company still services and maintains its original 10 accounts. In 2016 a new management team was established with Anthony DeHart leading the expansion efforts.

Union Grove has built a reputation for being competitively priced while delivering a consistently high standard of workmanship and quality products, and maintaining timely deliveries in ever changing market conditions.

”Union Grove recognizes that in order to provide customers with the highest possible product quality for every cutting application, unique partnerships with world-class producers have to be established. This relationship with Metamob exemplifies this type of partnering relationship”, stated Anthony DeHart.

”Our goal is to form long-term partnering relationships with customers who seek to gain a competitive advantage through better management of their cutting tool resources. We are committed to helping you achieve better management and efficiency of your tooling which results in a lower total cost of ownership and utilization.” Dehart added.
