Successful transformation into an international center for expertise and technology

Growth through expertise and diversification

Geretsried-Gelting, 8 May 2015 – SMB-DAVID finishing lines GmbH wins a major order for a fully automated post-processing line for industrial foams. The client is the KraussMaffei Group. The system with a total value of 0,000,000 euros will be completely set up, tested and accepted by the client at the SMB site in Geretsried prior to being delivered. This means SMB-DAVID is continuing on its growth path. This success has been made possible above all through the consistent expansion of business units. SMB-DAVID – recognized to date above all as a specialist for development, production and installation of special machines for processing and handling insulating panels – is continuously expanding its portfolio. In addition to supplying to internationally active companies in the chemicals and construction industries SMB-DAVID principally views itself today as a center of expertise, technology partner and project manager. Dr. Michael Loferer, CEO of SMB-DAVID: "KraussMaffei placed the order both on the basis of convincing machine technology and because of our expertise in planning and implementing complex engineering processes. That confirms the path we have taken of positioning SMB-DAVID as a technology partner which looks after customers from the needs analysis through to commissioning and employee training."

Over recent years, the portfolio has additionally been expanded to include new materials and processing methods. In addition to XPS insulating panels, it is now also possible to process polyurethane, mineral wool and wood materials. In future, moreover, increasing attention is going to be paid to developing solutions for all kinds of core materials (such as insulating panels, wood material panels, foam panels) and surface layers (e.g. wood material panels, polymer foils/panels, metal sheets, mineral panels). This technology ensures that clients will receive high-performance, precisely scalable and modular processing techniques leading to above-average efficiency gains. SMB-DAVID will be presenting this new technology at the LIGNA – the specialist show for the forestry and wood industry to be held in Hanover from 11 to 15 May.
