Now, Siempelkamp Group looks back at a successful 2022 fiscal year and is content with overwhelming performance. It is further recorded that with an order backlog of more than 1.03 billion EUR, the company can report full capacity utilisation and at the same time, a healthy looking order book. “Intelligent engineering for future generations” – the success motto for the Siempelkamp year 2022.
In 2022, Siempelkamp was able to win significant orders particularly in its core market, the wood-based panel industry. Customers represented worldwide placed orders for Siempelkamp plants in the double-digit range in all product lines. “From Turkey to Southeast Asia, from the USA to South America, we were able to impress plant operators, some of whom have been capitalizing on Siempelkamp expertise for decades now”, says Dr. Martin Stark, CEO of the Siempelkamp-Group.
Long-standing existing customers, but also new customers, were impressed by the expertise and technological know-how. Among many other orders, a South-American corporation continued with their cooperation Siempelkamp that has already lasted for many years. They ordered a complete system for manufacturing MDF in 2022, as well as a short-cycle press. Intensive cooperation, a modern concept, and proven Siempelkamp quality tipped the scales in favor of this project. One of the leading wood-based panel manufacturers in Turkey also placed an order with Siempelkamp for a new particleboard plant. Here as well, service and teamwork made the difference in challenging times.
As a new customer, a US-American door manufacturer ordered two forming and press lines for producing door skins. What is in demand here is Siempelkamp’s comprehensive expertise in the area of wood-based panel plants, particularly those for manufacturing thin MDF and HDF boards.
“2022 was a year of challenging conditions for our customers as well as for us, looking at inflation, supply shortages, and increased material costs. So in this context, it is even more pleasing that we continue to be trusted by wood-based panel producers represented worldwide, enabling us to implement many ambitious projects together”, says Samiron Mondal, Chief Sales Officer of G. Siempelkamp GmbH & Co. KG and Managing Director of Siempelkamp Maschinen- und Anlagenbau GmbH.
