IMA Schelling implements batch-size-1 production for EGGER in Bünde
The EGGER Group with its head office in St. Johann in Tyrol, Austria, belongs to the leading companies in the woodworking industry on an international scale. The family owned and operated company, founded in 1961, today has 20 production sites throughout the globe with a total of 10 500 employees approximately. At the German production site in Bünde, EGGER has fabricated front elements for all segments of the furniture market since 1994 – so far, however, only with batch sizes greater than or equal to 50. Buyers are large industrial corporations, medium-size companies and contractors. Since customer demand for a great diversity of variants with smaller batch sizes is continuously rising in the furniture front niche, EGGER decided in 2019 to expand the furniture front production by installing a fully integrated fully automated batch-size-1 processing plant from IMA Schelling.
