  • "In 2015 we purchased a Planer Grader Optimizer from VAB Solutions. We already had other brands in our other mills. We decided to stop our choice on VAB Planer Grader Optimizer for our Chertsey site for several reasons:

    1- After the analysis of our return on investment realized with VAB Solutions

    2- Due to the simplicity of the system, very compact dimension and its minimal components

    3- Following the good references that we have received from their customers for both the quality of the system and their services

    In summary, after analysis it was the system that offered Groupe Crête the best price and best recovery/ overall best ROI. One year after installing our VAB optimizer, we acquired the tracheid module and subsequently the Air Board Tracker module. This demonstrates our level of satisfaction. "
