Gilbert is proud to announce that Scantec Industrieanlagen GmbH has been appointed as its official agent for the Gilbert Planermill Division in the DACH region and Eastern Europe.


Scantec, based in Feldkirchen, Germany, offers professional consulting, customer-oriented sales and the highest level of service. The company has planned, delivered and installed more than 750 projects ranging from individual machines to major turnkey projects in the sawmilling industry. “Scantec has decades of experience in the wood industry and excellent contacts to the leading sawmills and wood processors. We are very fortunate to have Scantec as a sales partner in our team”, emphasizes Heidi Danbrook, Sales Manager at Gilbert.


“Gilbert won us over right from the start with the quality and performance of their products. The Gilbert Planer equipment is a perfect addition for us in the high-performance wood processing sector”, says Scantec Managing Director Stephan Lohmeyer in regards to the new business relationship. ‘


Today, over 130 Gilbert Planers are operating worldwide; in Canada, USA, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Sweden, Denmark and Germany. Proven to be the fastest planer in the world, the Gilbert High Speed Planer runs over 300 boards/min, leaving any competition in the dust. A new Gilbert Planer has recently started up at Mercer Timber in Saalburg-Ebersdorf, Deutschland, designed to run up to 1200 mpm. This will certainly be one of the most exciting planer mills in Europe! With this new partnership, Scantec and Gilbert will put their efforts together to further develop its presence in the Central and Eastern Europe market.
