Carbotech Group expands in the U.S.

December 29, 2023  By Carbotech Group

Quebec-based Carbotech Group has announced the acquisition of a 14,000 sq. ft. plant in Roebuck, S.C.

As part of its U.S. expansion and growth strategy, the company plans to start operations at its new facilities as early as mid-January 2024, primarily to serve customers in southern U.S.

With this acquisition, a new local team of mechanical and automation technicians will also be created. Together with the plant, this will improve the manufacturing of Carbotech equipment and enable the storage of spare parts for Autolog and Carbotech equipment.

The plant is strategically located in the heart of the American South. It will also be home to a training centre to develop expertise on Carbotech and Autolog equipment.


Jon Comber has been appointed as general manager of the U.S. operations. His extensive knowledge of Carbotech and Autolog products, and his impressive professional background in the sawmilling industry, including as a plant manager, make him the ideal person for the role.

Carbotech Group was born of Carbotech’s acquisition of Autolog. Together, the two specialists in their fields boast over 70 years of experience in comprehensive sawmill solutions for the wood industry.
