Wood-Mizer has acquired the Swedish company, MOReTENs AB, placing a full range of popular 4-sided moulders, planers, table saws, spindle moulders, planer/thicknessers and CNC routers into Wood-Mizer’s globally available product range.

Founded in 1980, MOReTENs designs and manufactures a popular range of woodworking machinery which includesfour-sided moulder/planer combination models, spindle moulders, and a workshop table saw.  In addition, MOReTENs also supplies high-end, CNC-controlled routers and log home building machinery.

“Throughout our history, Wood-Mizer has been committed to providing the best quality equipment to process logs into finished wood products,” said Wood-Mizer President and CEO Richard Vivers. “The affordable and versatile moulder and planer product lines from MOReTENs have been proven worldwide for decades, and are now backed by the high-quality service and support network customers expect from Wood-Mizer.”

The founder and owner of MOReTENs, Bo Mårtensson has joined Wood-Mizer as the General Director of the factory in Ostersund, Sweden. The factory in Sweden marks Wood-Mizer’s fifth manufacturing plant throughout the world including three facilities in the USA and one in Poland.

“Many years ago, I was a young engineer with carpentry experience when I started MOReTENs and began building woodworking machinery,” said Bo Mårtensson. “I’m proud to see my products in workshops worldwide, and now we are very pleased to be joining the Wood-Mizer team, which will see our existing products being available to a much wider customer base and will also accelerate our capability to introduce new products to meet our customers’ needs.”

Beginning in March 2018, Wood-Mizer will offer the new range of moulders/planers through their distribution network. The latest acquisition of MOReTENs builds on Wood-Mizer’s position as a worldwide manufacturer and supplier of narrow band sawmills, now offering a full range of equipment that can seamlessly convert logs into dried lumber and finally into finished wood products – all backed by Wood-Mizer’s expertise and commitment to excellent customer service.
