CARNEGIE, Pa. -- Vollmer of America, provider of grinding and erosion machines in woodworking and metalworking industries, has announced a new business partnership with Burton Saw & Supply to better serve its customers and grow within the saw blade maintenance market in the sawmill industry. 

Burton Saw & Supply, along with its affiliates Simonds International, Cut Technologies and BGR Saws, is a producer and marketer of cutting tools and related equipment for the primary wood fiber industry in North America. Due to Burton’s large presence within the sawmill industry, Vollmer of America has now established a close partnership to respond to the market needs.

While Vollmer machines as well as spare part requests within the sawmill industry will now be quoted and sold through Burton Saw & Supply, all installations, training, service and warranty work will still be handled by Vollmer of America. 

With more than 800 employees worldwide, the Vollmer Group’s recent launch of the new VLaser 270 has made the company a full-line supplier of tool machining. The North American subsidiary has 26 employees, 19 of which are based out of the Pittsburgh office. See
