Kronospan is the global market leader in the production of particleboard and MDF, and the leading manufacturer of OSB in Europe. Dieffenbacher and Kronospan maintain a long-standing business relationship.
The latest order for a continuous production line will replace a multi-opening OSB plant that has been in operation for more than 20 years in Sanem, Luxembourg. It will be the 23rd continuous press project completed by Dieffenbacher for Kronospan in less than 20 years.
However, the biggest highlight in the recent past was the commissioning of a new particleboard plant in the Croatian city of Bjelovar. Only 17 months after Dieffenbacher unveiled the CPS+ at Ligna 2015, the first board on this new generation continuous press was produced according to plan on October 1, 2016. Just two weeks later, Kronospan increased production to three shifts, citing the reliability of the new CPS+.
