Kalipedos Madiena (VMG) orders the complete plant with Siempelkamp in Krefeld, Germany. The new plant, which will be located in Akmene, Lithuania, will be Europe’s most modern particle board production with pioneering technology that will go into operation in 2020, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The new plant will supply the strong expanding production of furniture and kitchens. Since many years the manufactures produces exclusively for IKEA. Thereby is VMG jointly responsible for the positive development of the production capacity in the Baltic and neighbouring countries and will in near future provide additional Lithuanians producers with raw particle boards.
The new order demands Siempelkamp’s whole product portfolio. The synergies of the specialist subsidiaries Pallmann, CMC and Büttner are optimal used. The Belgian planning office Sicoplan adds, due to the 3D-planning technique, all CAD-capabilities, all in all based on laser measurement technology to millimetre data of the real landscape topography. Core component of the plant will be the ContiRoll ® of the new Generation 9 with a length of 45.4 m and a width of 8’. The production capacity of the new plant will be 2.000 m³/day.
