Grand Rapids, Michigan / St. Gallen, Switzerland, March 1, 2021 Steinemann Technology AG and Stiles Machinery are excited to announce the formation of their strategic partnership. Effective immediately, Stiles will be responsible for the sales, service and support of all Steinemann Technology in the US and Canada. Steinemann’s unmatched expertise in calibration and sanding in the composite panel industry, paired with Stiles’ industry leading service and support, will propel both companies to better serve their customers. In addition, both companies are looking forward to further contributing to the future of the composite panel industry and the growing cross laminated timber (CLT) and mass timber industry in North America.

As a cornerstone to this relationship, the Steinemann US personnel will be joining the Stiles team to ensure that the service and support Steinemann customers are currently used to receiving, will be uninterrupted while both companies continue to expand the support opportunities for the market going forward.

“The sales of Steinemann products, service and support in the North American market is both important and essential for us. With Stiles as North America’s market leader for solutions in wood processing, we have found the perfect partner for USA and Canada.
