Metamob Partners with Union Grove, Offers Quality Blades to U.S. Market - 1/5/2017
If you are looking for top quality bandsaw blades at competitive prices, Union Grove Saw & Knife wants a chance to earn your business. And the company has developed a new relationship with Metamob, a leading European bandsaw producer, to service the U.S. market. According to Union Grove, Metamob has built a strong reputation in Europe for quality blades.
From small bands for pallet lumber processing to wide bands for industrial sawmills, Metamob offers a wide variety of standard and premium blades; including blades especially suited for pallet dismantiling operations and sawmills. Metamob has just opened a new facility in Satu Mare, Romania 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 increased demands from the U.S. market.
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.
“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, director of Union Grove Saw & Knife.
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 high quality bandsaw and frame saw blades at competitive prices. Professional sharpening services followed in the same year. Today production is focused on the niche market of wide and narrow bandsaw blades for the pallet, portable mill and primary sawmill industries.
Metamob has the largest installed base of Iseli machines, world renowned as a premium basis for bandsaw production globally. Hutton expressed, “Customers of Metamob can now expect an even higher quality and delivery time as a result of consolidating all operations under one roof.”
Whatever your need when it comes to bandsaw blades, Metamob has invested to provide quick delivery of a wide variety of blades. Hutton explained, “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.”
Union Grove Saw and Knife, Inc. was founded in 1983 by Ed Bissell. Today, it services over 300 customers. The company still services and maintains its original ten accounts. In 2016 a new management team was established with Anthony DeHart leading all 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 the ever changing market conditions.
Dehart commented, “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.”
