A wide range of innovative & productive solutions for sawmills
At the heart of the 21st century sawmill industry
Our Story begins over 120 years ago
More than 120 years of development and innovation in the field of the primary wood processing since the first bandsaw manufactured by the automobile manufacturer PANHARD LEVASSOR in the 1900’s to the 4.0 Smart Sawmills monitored from the FINEGA Data Center thanks to the digital technology and STARLINCK satellite network.
The first steam logs sawing machines manufactured by the French automobile manufacturer PANHARD LEVASSOR.
PANHARD LEVASSOR's woodworking activity becomes independent under the brand name of “PANHARD LEVASSOR RENNEPONT” and integrates the first electric motors
Visit of President Vincent AURIOL to the PANHARD LEVASSOR RENNEPONT booth during Paris Fair in 1947.
RENNEPONT company becomes independent and settles his first operation plant in Dormans (150 Km from Paris) and creates the industrial area where is today installed FINEGA group factory..
Opening of the company "Mécanique et Engrenage Moderne" which develop the first electrical log clamping for logs. Later, MEM became the French leader worldwide well-known for highly productive sawmill machinery.
SEGEM creates the first ring debarkers and then develops a complete range of equipment for automatic log yards and equipment for waste recovery.
CIRIS becomes the leading French engineering company dedicated to the wood and timber industry.
EGA built the first electronic setworks based on microprocessor technology for a better accurate positioning of sawmill machines. Then, EGA became the French leader for sawmill engineering, automation, scanners and optimization systems in order to increase recovery and improve sawmill productivity.
Creation of FINEGA group that successively belongs the activities of EGA companies, MEM, RENNEPONT, Gillet-M1TB, SEGEM and CIRIS
Start-up of the first 4.0 sawmill in France
Installation of the first Italian smart 4.0 sawmill monitored from Finega Data-Center in France.
CIRIS becomes a start-up and research company specialized in I.T technologies for the intelligent and connected machines in the field of the 4.0 Industry.
Developer & European leader in the
"4.0 Sawmill" technology
Thanks to the know-how and technologies developed over many years by the French sawmill machinery manufacturers MEM, GILLET-M1TB, RENNEPONT, CIRIS and EGA combined with digital IT technologies & digitization developed since 2013, FINEGA today offers a wide range of highly productive, intelligent sawmill machines connected to the world of the 4.0 Industry through OSIA 4.0 IT solution.
