COMBOIS was founded in 1967 through an initiative by Heinrich Kuper, Germany, with the mission to exchange technical know-how and practical experience between the members. COMBOIS members are leading distribution and service companies specializing in woodworking and wood processing machines. The founding members initially were based in Europe, but today COMBOIS has 12 members from countries all over the world.
