Siempelkamp Sells KüstersPress, ContiPress Technology To Sunds Fibertec

The KüstersPress and ContiPress technology is used for the production of MDF and particleboard. Between 1987 and 2006 more than 60 presses were delivered, currently, more than 50 presses are still in operation worldwide. These presses require technology support, spare parts, service and modernization.

Sunds Fibertech will expand its German technology center in Willich, close to Siempelkamp’s headquarters in Krefeld, to grow sales, offer technical support, build up a workshop and a logistics center. The center will be fully focused on KüstersPress and ContiPress technology.

Stefan Wissing, CEO, Siempelkamp Logistics & Service Business Unit, says, “By combining the business volumes of KüstersPress and ContiPress in Sunds Fibertech we will secure a strong long-term support for these presses. We are convinced that Sunds Fibertech’s focus will ensure the best support and solution for the customers.”

“With this acquisition we will strengthen our position as a strategic partner to our customers and we will be able to offer a much wider service portfolio. Our team in Germany will be a good combination of several experts who have been part of the Küsters journey from the very beginning and the next generation of press experts. The new technology center will count about 2000  m2 including offices, a customized workshop and the logistics center,” adds Lars Eklund, CEO, Sunds Fibertech.
