At the beginning of February, Siempelkamp produced the first panel on the MDF/HDF thin-panel plant installed at Yekalon-Jiufangyuan Panels of Huanggang in Hubei, China. The order was placed in the fourth quarter of 2016. Start of assembly that had actually been scheduled for summer 2017 ultimately took until April 2018. According to a recent release from Siempelkamp, the plant is able to produce panels starting from a thickness of 1.0 mm, enabling to achieve an annual capacity of 300,000 m³. At the time the order was placed, production capacity had been given as 250,000 m³.

Siempelkamp supplied components such as the glue-dosing unit with Ecoresinator, a compacter including a mat-preheating system, a 9 ft x 33.8m ContiRoll, the finishing line, and the “Prod-IQ” process-control system. Büttner supplied a flash tube drier, and CMC Texpan a fibre sifter.
