German Engineering is in demand as ever: With sales of woodworking machines worth around 3 billion euros in 2016, Germany is by far the world's largest supplier to the wood and furniture industry.
Diverse and finely differentiated product range
No other nation offers such a diverse range of machines, plants and components as the German companies. Manufacturers supplement the finely differentiated standard range with system concepts and special solutions that they develop together with their customers. Starting with the hand-held circular saw, through complex furniture production plants for batch sizes of one, to the overall concept of plants for the production of sawn timber, chipboard, laminate flooring and many other wood products. The plant and engineering business is a domain of the German manufacturers, in which they have an almost unique selling point.
Active worldwide: together with customers and partners
Around 72 percent of the total production of German woodworking machinery is exported. The German Engineering brand stands for performance, productivity and quality not without reason. From a global perspective, these are the three most important criteria for customers' purchasing decisions. Most of the almost exclusively medium-sized companies in the industry are strongly positioned and today have a large network of sales offices and dealers.
Materials and processes
The requirements of architecture and design are subject to constant changes, such as lightweight construction, the combination of a wide variety of materials, innovative surface coatings or new types of timber construction. German mechanical engineers integrate these into their development projects: A new lightweight panel, for example, demands completely unknown technical solutions in the manufacturing process. The pressure to rationalise, for example in the production of sawn timber or furniture, due to significantly rising material costs for wood and glue as well as the lack of qualified specialist personnel, also ensures innovative processes time and again.
