With an exceptionally busy 2014/15 behind it, the team at Scheuch's Wood Based Panel Industry division has been looking back with pride at the project highlights that the financial year brought. The success of this period serves as further proof that Scheuch is on exactly the right track.
Among the exciting international orders that came our way was a remarkable major contract in Ireland for the company SmartPLY, where we prevailed over our competitors on the European market despite some exceptionally strict requirements and challenging basic conditions. Also deserving of special mention is the continued success of the Scheuch fibre sifter (SWS), for which we received no less than nine orders over the past year.
With an eye on the future, we ramped up our internationalisation and expansion efforts in our position as a leading supplier of extraction and dedusting technology – both in regions where we already have a presence, such as Russia, Australia, Vietnam and South America, and in markets that we have yet to tap into. One example of this will be the opening of a sales office in Bangkok with a view to providing an on-the-ground service to the vital ASEAN market.
