A glimpse into Weinig before LIGNA 2017

Ahead of LIGNA 2017, Asia’s woodworking industry was given a glimpse of what to expect from German woodworking machinery expert Michael Weinig.

This morning, over 50 visitors from Southeast Asia, Japan, Australia and New Zealand arrived at the company’s global headquarters in Tauberbischofsheim.

They heard from Chief Sales Officer Gregor Baumbusch, who introduced Weinig’s products, services and latest developments in woodworking machinery.

These systems are also supported by a service application that gives an overview and analysis of a production line.

The company is expected to boast a turnover of EUR 380 million in 2016, with high expectations for 2017 to exceed current sales levels.

“The woodworking industry is developing very well. We have had strong order incomes from Europe, USA and Southeast Asia. China has also recovered,” Mr Baumbusch said.

The company did well in the first quarter of 2017, compared to two years ago – something that is unusual for a LIGNA year, he added.

This year’s LIGNA focuses on Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things. It means new products, efficiencies and transparency in all processes, creating new opportunities in furniture production.

LIGNA will run from 22 – 26 May. Weinig will be at Halle 27.
