Mr. Joerg F Mayer

On the floors of LIGNA 2017, Wood & Panel had the privilege of speaking to Mr. Joerg F Mayer, Managing Director of Wilhelm Altendorf GmbH & Co. KG, about his company’s participation at LIGNA, their latest Magis, the most talked about F45, their expansion plans and lot more.


Today is the Day 4 of LIGNA. Mr. Mayer, if you can tell us about your expectation and participation from this LIGNA?


Mr. Joerg F Mayer : Well for 2017 LIGNA, we had high expectations since the industry is becoming really positive at the moment for us on a global scale. So we were expecting a lot from LIGNA. And after the fourth day, almost the fourth day, we can state that most of our expectations are met.


Now, it has been 111 years of Altendorf, first let me congratulate on that and how has been the journey so far?


Mr. Joerg F Mayer : Well it has been a long journey of 111 years. I think it is something not too many companies of our industry can claim for. So we just thought that 111 is a specific number because at least in germany, 110 is occupied and 112 is occupied as well. That’s why we decided to go for the 111 as a special year for Altendorf. Plus we would like to point out that we have a long history and that we are in the industry with side table saws for 111 years. And that is the message we want to deliver to the world market that they can count us Altendorf for being the world leader for this kind of product for 111 years. That’s why we play that anniversary as a specific one at this year.
