According to the firm, demand from customers has shown strong growth in the past year. This turn of events caused the firm to engage in dialogue with Metsä about a more in-depth partnership. The framework conditions were fleshed out in a letter of intent in autumn. The company will first initially existing storage capacity in Heiden and Villingen-Schwenningen for trading, which has now begun. Kerto LVL Q-panels with rabbets in a 1.20 x 13 m format and 39, 51 or 69 mm thick are currently available there at short notice. All of the products requested by customers should also be on stock in Niemberg in the medium term once work to expand its storage space has been completed.
