The order backlog in 2022 represented an increase of around 19.5% percent compared to the previous year. The Group's order intake also developed successfully in 2022 – amounting to €779.3m.

Wood-based panels customers worldwide placed orders for Siempelkamp plants in the double-digit range in all product lines.

“From Turkey to Southeast Asia, from the USA to South America, we were able to impress plant operators, some of whom have been capitalizing on Siempelkamp expertise for decades now”, said Dr Martin Stark, CEO of the Siempelkamp-Group.

Among many other orders, a South-American corporation continued with their co-operation Siempelkamp that has already lasted for many years. They ordered a complete system for manufacturing MDF in 2022, as well as a short-cycle press.

One of the leading wood-based panel manufacturers in Turkey also placed an order with Siempelkamp for a new particleboard plant.

As a new customer, a US-American door manufacturer ordered two forming and press lines for producing door skins.

“2022 was a year of challenging conditions for our customers as well as for us, looking at inflation, supply shortages and increased material costs,” said Samiron Mondal, Chief Sales Officer of G. Siempelkamp GmbH & Co KG and Managing Director of Siempelkamp Maschinen- und Anlagenbau GmbH.

“So in this context, it is even more pleasing that we continue to be trusted by wood-based panel producers represented worldwide, enabling us to implement many ambitious projects together.”
