Dieffenbacher will undertake the relocation of the plant, consisting of forming station, forming line, pre-press and a 42.4m long CPS. The contract also includes a modernisation and optimisation package as well as a completely new plant control system.

The plant was commissioned in 1996 and received a press extension in 2000. Its production of about 580,000m³/year of particleboard will significantly expand Kastamonu’s production capacity in Bulgaria and strengthen its presence in the Eastern European market.

The plant in France has already been dismantled. Re-commissioning at the new site is scheduled for the beginning of 2019. With the plant in Gorno Sahrane, Kastamonu Entegre now operates a total of four plants with continuous presses from Dieffenbacher.
