At LIGNA.23, Anthon introduced dynamism to business. Flensburg-based Anthon demonstrated new technical possibilities with two core pieces from large plants. Aligning dynamism to business and connecting ideas, Klaus Lange, Managing Director of Anthon opined that “We are at LIGNA for the 23rd time and have repeatedly represented with two trade show booths”.
At the leading trade fair LIGNA in Hannover, Anthon was able to show what makes an Anthon plant so valuable: the cutting performance and the perfect cut. The young team around managing director and shareholder Ove Lange used VR glasses to demonstrate how the exhibit works in the overall process. “We show a separated core piece from our plant each time. The addition of a virtual, moving representation of the entire plant has proven to be a great new tool for leading discussions at a trade show,” explained Bernd Jochims, sales manager at Anthon GmbH.
In addition, the mechanical engineering company was able to build on its recent successes in the field of wood-fibre insulation boards and clarify the final technical details for a particularly large turnkey insulation replica for one of the leading wood-based materials manufacturers directly at the trade show.
Anthon has already supplied comparable plants to Ziegler/ Naturheld and Gutex. Ziegler has already been producing since Q3 ’22, Gutex is scheduled to start up later this year.
In addition, the company was able to further advance its own prospects in the USA with the signing of a new contract with the wood-based materials manufacturer Roseburg Forest Products. A conclusion of a new order for the long-standing Anthon customer Borg Manufacturing from Australia further rounded off the trade show.
“Insulation materials are currently one of the most sought-after materials on the market. Our cutting height and performance as a general contractor for complete plants for remanufacturing in this area make us increasingly attractive as a partner for new plants anywhere in the world,” comments Gonne Hansen, sales engineer at Anthon GmbH. As a machine builder, Anthon is particularly pleased to be able to make a small contribution to the energy transition. “The faster we produce, the faster we can insulate and the faster we save Co2 together,” says Ove Lange. The delivery date for the new plant is fall 2024.
