Vollmer of America Partners With Burton Saw & Supply 

Vollmer of America has just announced a new business partnership with Burton Saw & Supply, along with its affiliates Simonds International, Cut Technologies and BGR Saws: Due to Burton’s large presence within the sawmill industry, Vollmer of America has now established a close partnership to respond quickly to the market needs with proven and reliable solutions. While Vollmer grinding and erosion machines as well as spare part requests within the sawmill industry will now be quoted and sold through Burton Saw & Supply, all installations, training, service and warranty work will still be handled by Vollmer of America.

“We believe that the partnership with Burton Saw & Supply will be very beneficial for all parties involved, not only in regards to streamlining communication channels, but most importantly for our customers as well who will now get to have a more frequent contact base and improved support system throughout the U.S. and Canada,” Shannon Fox, North American Sales Manager at Vollmer of America, says.
