New milestone for a long-standing successful customer relationship: The Thai Vanachai Panel Industries Company Limited placed its 12th order with Siempelkamp in October. This order represents another project in the trusting cus-tomer relationship that has existed since the 1980’s.
The order includes a 4’ x 48.7m forming and pressline for Particleboard Production – the longest 4’ContiRoll®ever supplied by Siempelkamp! The scope of supply also includes a cooling and stacking line, an automatic storage system as well as a sanding line.
The Thai manufacturer for wood-based panels placed the order directly with Siempelkamp Qing-dao Machinery & Equipment Co. Ltd., the second Chinese-based Siempelkamp location in the South of the Shandong province. This location provides the best conditions to serve the Asian market quickly and reliably with press components according to Siempelkamp’s quality standard.
Vanachai, one of the leading wood-based materials manufacturers in Thailand, will produce standard products for the furniture industry in a cost-efficient way with the line. The company with roots reaching back to the 1940’s had already ordered an MDF plant made by Siempel-kamp in late 2016. Same as the MDF Plant, this newly ordered particleboard plant will also be set up in the southern Thai province of Surat Thani. Vanachai operates the largest of its three board production locations in this area in Thailand.
“This order is not only the second order that Vanachai has placed withSiempelkamp within one year, but it also represents the 12thLine that the customer placed with the Siempelkamp Group since the 1980’s,” says Henning Gloede, Managing Director of Siempelkamp Pte. Ltd. Singa-pore. Thus manifesting the longest and most successful customer relationship the machine manufacturing and engineering company from Krefeld has established in Southeast Asia since its first presence in this market dating back to the late 1970’s.
The start of installation is scheduled for the 4th quarter of2018. Following the successful startup, this Vanachai location will be home to 6 lines for MDF and particleboard production, five of which will have been supplied by Siempelkamp and one by Metso.
