HOMAG Plattenaufteiltechnik GmbH and Anthon GmbH have signed a framework cooperation agreement and plan to cooperate closely. They aim to expand their own product ranges and fulfill their customers’ requirements even better.
HOMAG Plattenaufteiltechnik is part of the HOMAG Group, the world’s leading supplier of integrated solutions for production in the woodworking industry and woodworking shops, and specialises in machines and systems for panel dividing at the beginning of the production process. Its particular focus is on providing solutions for batch size one production such as the highly flexible and customised production of furniture.
By contrast, Anthon’s key strength is in panel-dividing machines and systems mainly on a large scale and it thus provides larger saws and the associated handling. The products of the two companies therefore complement each other.
“This cooperation additionally enables us to offer our customers saws with increased cutting heights and to sell solutions from a single source in this segment also,” explains Wolfgang Augsten, Head of the Business Unit Panel Dividing at the HOMAG Group. “Furthermore, the HOMAG Group will from now on be Anthon’s partner whenever the company needs smaller saws or additional machines in a project.”
“For us, this partnership now offers the opportunity to provide an increasing number of products to the furniture industry,” highlights Ove Lange, Managing Director of Anthon GmbH. “We have found the best possible partners for this in HOMAG Plattenaufteiltechnik GmbH and the HOMAG Group.”
