Record order intake in 2021
The Siempelkamp Group can be pleased about an extremely successful business year 2021: With a record order intake of EUR 855.0 million, the company clearly exceeds its previous year’s order intake of EUR 552.7 million significantly. “Our realignment in the area of sales, process organization, and global manufacturing excellence, which was initiated in 2020, has proven its worth in all areas and bore fruit in 2021,” said Dr. Martin Stark, CEO of the Siempelkamp Group.
Siempelkamp positioned itself successfully in particular in its core market, the wood-based materials industry. The Group also achieved numerous sales successes in the competence fields of metal forming presses and composite presses. In total, 24 major plants were ordered across all areas. Within the wood-based materials industry Siempelkamp continues to push ahead with the reorientation of the board production. Climate change and the scarcity of resources require solutions for the use of alternative raw materials. Depending on their local raw material supplies and their market situation wood-based panel producers can resort to new processes that conserve resources.
The company’s innovation concept focuses on the topics of environmental technology and recycling. Siempelkamp solutions in the area of digitalization are also in great demand. The company provides a comprehensive digital product portfolio which increases the cost efficiency of customers and optimizes product quality.
In 2022, the Siempelkamp Group will continue its successful path of implementing new processes and investing in its realignment. “Our worldwide production network with locations in Germany, Italy, the Czech Republic, and China is characterized by the idea of efficiency as well as by our commitment to customer proximity and top quality,” elaborates Samiron Mondal, Managing Director of Siempelkamp Maschinen- und Anlagenbau GmbH. “Here, our concept of global production control, which we launched in 2020, has a positive effect. On the one hand, in a diversified market we provide exactly the support that is tailored to the raw material deposits and the needs of our customers. Secondly, plant operators benefit from a holistic concept that ensures quality and efficiency in all areas from resource utilization to logistics.”
A clear commitment to responsibility and sustainable shaping of society and its industries will continue to be a focus of Siempelkamp’s corporate strategy in the business year 2022.
