Forte manufactures its first board on a ContiRoll

 Tuesday, February 20, 2018

Siempelkamp-ForteOn December 15 of last year, the Siempelkamp installation team announced the production readiness of the single-source turnkey plant for particleboard in the town of Suwalki in northeastern Poland. That meant that the plant was put into operation one-and-a-half months before the contractually agreed February 2018 date. After the Christmas holiday period, the first board was produced on February 3. Siempelkamp congratulates the committed and experienced team of FabrykiMebli “Forte” S.A. and celebrates the first production start of 2018.


With the production start of its most advanced factory, Forte, one of Europe’s largest furniture manufacturers, ensures the capacity utilisation of its furniture plants in order to meet the demands of the market. The Polish manufacturer makes self-assembly furniture at four production locations including OstrówMazowiecka, Białystok, Hajnówka, and now also Suwałki.


Since the installation start in the beginning of May 2017, the Siempelkamp installation team scored by meeting the extremely tight deadlines and prematurely completing project milestones. The Siempelkamp subsidiary Büttner installed its turnkey systems consisting of a 49.9 MW energy plant and a drum dryer with a drying capacity of 42.4 t/h bone dry two months ahead of time in November 2017. The plant’s installation start, which had to be delayed due to permit reasons, was thus compensated for.
The entire finishing line of the plant consisting of a diagonal saw, a cooling and stacking line, an automated storage system, as well as the sanding line was completed by the Siempelkamp team in November 2017. With the new particleboard plant in Suwalki including the continuous forming and press line with ContiRoll®press, FabrykiMebli “Forte” S.A. went into production ahead of time and isexpanding its production by 1500 m³ of particleboard per day.
