Start-up is scheduled for the first half year in 2024.

The new fibre preparation system will feature a capacity of 30 tons per hour and process rubber wood for production of high-quality MDF.

“Our first line from Andritz has been showing excellent performance since its installation in 2016,”said Visarut Palarit, deputy director Wisewoods.

“The new line will enable us to enlarge our production capacity significantly. In parallel, Andritz’ technology ensures that we receive top fibre quality – a precondition for our MDF board to deliver lighter colour and smoother surface properties.”

Wisewoods Co Ltd is a renowned player in the wood panel industry for four decades and manufactures high-quality MDF products for the Middle East and Asian region.
