Baahu Panels, a subsidiary of panel manufacturer Greenply Industries, has ordered a Siempelkamp plant for the production of medium-density fibreboard (MDF) and high-density fibreboard (HDF).

Greenply focuses on the processing of eucalyptus resources for board production at the Vadodara location in the state of Gujarat in western India. The company specialises in the production of plywood, flush doors, block boards, and decorative veneers.

Greenply decided in favor of a Siempelkamp ContiRoll press that will be used for the production of MDF and HDF with a board thickness variance ranging from 1.5mm to 35mm.

Eucalyptus, one of the most common plantation tree species in India, will be processed for production of MDF or HDF board. Its wood is suitable, among other things, for flooring construction, furniture, and decorative interior finishing. Especially in the Indian market, Siempelkamp’s plants for processing the regionally highly available eucalyptus resources enjoy a good reputation.

“We would like to thank Greenply for their confidence in our competence to supply excellent plants for the production of wood-based panels, and we are looking forward to our further cooperation,” said Samiron Mondal, managing director of Siempelkamp Maschinen- und Anlagenbau.
