Wood based panels

We supply the world’s WBP industry with premium quality steel belts and a global service operation designed to maximise press productivity.

We can help you maximize belt lifetime and keep downtime to the absolute minimum through a global steel belt service operation. 

These materials are designed to deliver optimum press performance through a combination of tensile strength; elasticity and thermal conductivity; and resistance to corrosion and general wear and tear. We are certified to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001:2018. 

Continuing innovation in WBP technology

Innovation has been at the heart of our business for well over 120 years. In 1901 we produced the world’s first steel belt and have been a trusted partner to the WBP industry ever since, developing the technologies behind the production of many of today’s premium quality board materials. 

Panel boards made from sustainable materials such as rice straw, coconut husk fibres, sugar cane, hemp and other agro-waste products are already in production today and we are working hand-in-hand with industry partners to ensure that our belts remain at the heart of tomorrow’s WBP industry.
