Siempelkamp has announced the results of their FY2022, citing that the fiscal year was “successful” with an order backlog of more than €1.03bn, while running at full capacity and having a healthy order book.

Siempelkamp’s order backlog increased by around 19.5% compared to the previous year. The group’s order intake in FY2022 also amounted to €779.3m, and sales amounting to €611m.

In 2022, Siempelkamp was able to win significant orders particularly in its core market, the wood-based panel industry. Customers represented worldwide placed orders for Siempelkamp plants in the double-digit range in all product lines.

“From Turkey to South East Asia, from the US to South America, we were able to impress plant operators, some of whom have been capitalising on Siempelkamp expertise for decades now,” said Dr Martin Stark, CEO of the Siempelkamp Group.

Among many other orders, a South American corporation continued with their cooperation Siempelkamp that has already lasted for many years. They ordered a complete system for manufacturing medium-density fibreboard (MDF) in 2022, as well as a short-cycle press.

In Turkey, one wood-based panel manufacturers in Turkey also placed an order with Siempelkamp for a new particleboard plant.

As a new customer, a US door manufacturer ordered two forming and press lines for producing door skins. What was in demand was Siempelkamp’s specialisation in the area of wood-based panel plants, particularly those for manufacturing thin MDF and high-density fibreboard (HDF) boards.

“2022 was a year of challenging conditions for our customers as well as for us, looking at inflation, supply shortages, and increased material costs,” said Samiron Mondal, chief sales officer of Siempelkamp, and managing director of Siempelkamp Maschinen- und Anlagenbau.

“So in this context, it is even more pleasing that we continue to be trusted by wood-based panel producers represented worldwide, enabling us to implement many ambitious projects together.”
