To achieve a safe mill environment and operations, safe production machinery and good work ergonomics are required. We offer safety solutions that improve well-being at work, occupational safety and productivity. The excellent ergonomics of our machines and state-of-the-art safety automation solutions guarantee smooth and safe working conditions.
We are active participants in a European working group developing the safety of machinery (Observing Committee (K114) of European Committee for Standardization CEN/TC 114- Safety of Machinery).
Growing together with the customer
We are genuinely interested in our customers’ needs and the bottlenecks and investment criteria of the veneer, plywood and LVL production processes. Manyost, by number, of our customers are relatively small private family companies. However, some of our customers are part of major consolidated forest groups that manufacture not only various wood-based panel products, but also products such as pulp, paper and sawn timber. Our goal is to become the preferred supplier for a growing number of customers, in more and more market areas.
