ITALY - Due to the COVID-19 health crisis which is affecting European countries and the rest of the world with increasing criticality, SCM Group has opted not to take part in the up-and-coming edition of Holz-Handwerk which had already been postponed until 16-19 June 2020 as a result of this problem.
This is a difficult decision that SCM has found itself forced to take, given the importance of the event internationally for the wood sector. It does so with the utmost awareness and sense of responsibility towards the increasingly concerning situation that has arisen at international level: in virtue of the continuing spread of this new virus and the precautionary measures that the different countries affected are adopting to contain the epidemic as best as possible, SCM believes that the contextual and business conditions do not exist for a such an important trade fair.
In addition, to date, the continuing spread of the epidemic makes it impossible to predict when the global social-economic scenario will re-stabilize, both in Europe and the rest of the world, thus guaranteeing a return to regular operations for all those key players in the wood production chain.
SCM does, however, continue to offer all its support to secondary wood processing businesses, from large industries to artisans, from furniture to windows and doors to joinery.
SCM experts are on hand to assist customers even remotely with state-of-the-art Maestro connect and Smartech augmented reality digital services to optimize production processes and all the after-sales service and maintenance activities, as well as for practical demonstrations and in-depth explanations on what's new at SCM and the E-Campus training courses designed around the needs of wood businesses.
