Successful first half-year for Dieffenbacher

Dieffenbacher increases its sales while showing at the LIGNA trade fair how the production of wood-based panels can be even more efficient


The first half of 2017 was eventful and extremely successful for Dieffenbacher. Orders for six wood-based panel plants already ensured well-filled order books before the LIGNA trade fair in May. By the end of the second quarter, three additional projects were booked.

On the second day of LIGNA, Vietnamese company Thien Lam Dat JSC signed a contract for a complete MDF plant with CPS+. The Algerian company BIGSTAR, via its subsidiary Panneaux d'Algérie, also entrusted Dieffenbacher with the delivery of a complete MDF plant with CPS+. It will be the first continuous press operating in North Africa. In addition, Kronospan ordered for its Sanem site in Luxembourg the core package of an OSB plant. A CPS+ will replace the multi-opening press, which has operated since 1996. The new projects demonstrate how CPS+ has reached the global market and become the gold standard for efficient continuous press systems.

Dieffenbacher’s new stand at LIGNA reflected the company’s early 2017 success and its commitment to helping customers reach "the next level of plant efficiency." Dieffenbacher presented numerous new developments and solutions for complete production plants and plant modernization.

At the conclusion of LIGNA, Christian Dieffenbacher, member of the management board, said that Dieffenbacher's pledge to produce the most efficient overall plant solutions hit the mark with customers. "We had a lot of good discussions and were pleased by the exceptionally high level of enthusiasm for our message and our products.” With a view to the successful first half-year, he added: "We are extremely satisfied with our progress and look confidently ahead to the future. We expect a significant increase in sales for the whole of 2017."
