Every once in a while a manufacturer is discovered that may not be that well known here in the UK but are a respected and reknowned manufacturer in the rest of the world
Ligna 2017....The world's largest exhibition of woodworking machinery..?
For those that have never visited the Ligna trade show but have been to one of the UK shows held at the NEC, just imagine the NEC and then multiply by at least 100...that is an idea of how vast the Ligna trade show in Germany really is. It probably takes a minimum of 2-3 days just to do a walk by and see all the exhibits. For those lucky enough to attend the event, they will realise just how many manufacturers of woodworking machinery there really are and also realise just how few manufacturers are represented here in the UK.
So in a nutshell, that is what we are here for. Being a totally independent company, we look for new, exciting and innovative products often from smaller specialist manufacturers where the products are built around a purpose as opposed to be being built around a price. Our background as engineers to the industry allows us to see new products through the eyes of an engineer as opposed to the eyes of a salesman.
At Ligna, we spent 4 days solid working with our trusted suppliers and business partners as well as looking for new products which we feel UK customers would benefit.
Here are some of the highlights;
Kundig - For those serious about sanding
Edge banders - Our best selling machines built for us to our specification
Briquetters - Did you know we have been selling our briquette machines since 2008..?
