SWISS KRONO celebrated the birth of their first board at the new particleboard plant in Menznau. That day, September 13, also happened to be Chairwoman of the Board of Directors Ines Kaindl-Benes’s mother’s birthday.

Dieffenbacher project manager Jens Hauffe, Bernd Bielfeldt, head of the Wood business unit, and Christian Dieffenbacher, member of the management board were also present to share SWISS KRONO’s excitement about the punctual and smooth start-up of the plant.

Dieffenbacher supplied all the essential machines, from gluing through raw board handling, for the replacement project.

A highlight of the new plant is the EVOjet P gluing system. It ensures optimum gluing and significant glue savings compared to conventional systems and requires minimum care and maintenance. With its order of a CPS+ in late 2015, SWISS KRONO was among the first companies to acquire the new gold standard for efficient continuous press systems. The cutting-edge press offers optimum board quality, reduced material consumption, highest productivity and lowest lifecycle costs. The new production line in Menznau is the fourth plant with CPS+ in operation worldwide.
