Siempelkamp 2022 fiscal year: Successful positioning, capacity fully utilized

Krefeld, May 10th, 2023 – The Siempelkamp Group can look back at a successful 2022 fiscal year: with an order backlog of more than 1.03 billion EUR, the company can report full capacity utilization and at the same time, a healthy looking order book.

“Intelligent engineering for future generations” – the success motto for the Siempelkamp year 2022

Siempelkamp's order backlog surpassed the billion-euro mark in 2022, an increase of around 19.5 percent compared to the previous year. The Group's order intake also developed successfully in 2022: it amounts to 779.3 million EUR, sales amounts to 611.0 million EUR.

In 2022, Siempelkamp was able to win significant orders particularly in its core market, the wood-based panel industry. Customers represented 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”, says Dr. Martin Stark, CEO of the Siempelkamp-Group.

Long-standing existing customers, but also new customers, were impressed by the expertise and technological know-how. Among many other orders, a South-American corporation continued with their cooperation 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. Intensive cooperation, a modern concept, and proven Siempelkamp quality tipped the scales in favor of this project. One of the leading wood-based panel manufacturers in Turkey also placed an order with Siempelkamp for a new particleboard plant. Here as well, service and teamwork made the difference in challenging times.

As a new customer, a US-American door manufacturer ordered two forming and press lines for producing door skins. What is in demand here is Siempelkamp's comprehensive expertise in the area of wood-based panel plants, particularly those for manufacturing thin MDF and HDF boards.

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

Achievements like this are also based on the work of dedicated teams. In 2022, 2,794 Siempelkamp employees played an important part in the excellent positioning of Siempelkamp products and services around the world. Many projects have run smoothly in the past fiscal year, e.g., ten start-ups and twelve final inspections, based on the expertise and dedication of the Siempelkamp team.
