Thomas Krammer: Our trump card is our decades of experience with the constantly changing requirements of the industry. As early as at the beginning of the 1980s, we supplied specially developed high-temperature oils for the first Conti presses in Europe. This is where the success story of the production of wood fibre boards on continuous presses began. Short distances between raw material, production and further processing in the furniture industry characterised the business. But for more than two decades now, production has shifted more and more to the East. Raw material procurement and further processing are now globally networked. The market share of Chinese wood panel manufacturers is now a solid 30-plus per cent of the global business. In the past 15 years, the number of presses in China has increased tenfold - to around 300 at present. Numerous new projects are planned there. A local Chinese press supplier has also established itself over the years. For a long time, the goal of the operators and plant manufacturers was to jointly operate plants that run faster, meaning at higher temperatures, and achieve the highest possible capacities. This has changed in the meantime; maximum efficiency is the measure of all things.
