Turkey gets it first continuous OSB plant from Siempelkamp

Published on :Monday, November 1, 2021

Küpeliler Endustri AS, the Turkish wood-based panel producer has recently placed orders for two new plants with Siempelkamp, the first continuous press for OSB in Turkey. Firstly, the first continuous OSB plant to be assembled in Turkey – secondly, a new particleboard plant. Siempelkamp is thus continuing its successful commitment to the Turkish market.

The new Siempelkamp plant with contiRoll in the format 4′ x 33.8 m, extendable to 45.4 m, which replaces an existing plant at the Kutahya location, will support Küpeliler Endustri AS in increasing its board quality and implementing higher plant availability. The second new order was placed by Küpeliler Endustri with its German partner for its particleboard division. It comprises a line with a ContiRoll in the format 7′ x 23.8 m, extendable to 28,8 m. This new investment replaces a single-level line at the Eskişehir site, which has been in production for 40 years.

“We are pleased to be able to support Küpeliler’s innovative strength with two plant concepts at the same time, especially since we can place a first in the Turkish market with the OSB plant,” says Ulrich Kaiser, Head of Sales Siempelkamp. The two orders represent currently 32 ContiRoll projects that Siempelkamp has realized with Turkish customers in 27 years. “Our reference list is a chronology of the continuous trust of Turkish wood-based material producers in our work,” Ulrich Kaiser summarizes.

Since 2010 Siempelkamp has been operating an office in Istanbul which supports Turkish wood-based panel producers with first-class, trustworthy advice.
