Edges made to measure

'.$co_profile.'

One might go for a wood or stone look, but apart from the choice of materials, aspects like colour, gloss level and style are equally important features in the furniture industry. Contemporary furniture design offers a wide range of solutions. MKT Moderne Kunststoff-Technik Gebrüder Eschbach GmbH from Ohrdruf in Thuringia is well familiar with the issue. The medium-sized company, active on an international level, produces thermoplastic edge bandings for the furniture industry and is the number three in the German market. In Europe, MKT even ranks among the top four players.

For more than 20 years, MKT has contributed to furniture design in Europe and beyond. Broad rolls of edge bandings are manufactured at MKT’s headquarters in Ohrdruf and at its second production plant in Hohenkirchen.

“Our focus is on production technology for edge bandings made of ABS and PP materials,” points out Managing Director Dipl.-Kfm. Sven Kirchner, who took on the new management position in 2012. “We produce edge bandings on calender machines. Today, we are able to manufacture a 1.3 m wide roll that is subsequently printed and varnished. The customer can define the desired length, which brings about considerable production advantages for the furniture industry.”

It all started for MKT back in 1991 when the company was founded by the two brothers Jakob and Matthias Eschbach. At that time, MKT primar-ily concentrated on the production of wall claddings and thermoplastic edge bandings for the furniture industry.

“In the years to follow, we shifted our focus entirely to edge bandings. I must say that this was definitely the right decision,” says Sales Manager Joachim Wagner. “Here at our headquarters, we have experienced gradual growth, and in 2006 we invested 20 million EUR in a second production plant in Hohenkirchen in order to meet growing production capacities.”

Today, MKT provides a wide choice of edging decors. “The improved printing technology has led to considerable changes in the reproduction of wood decors. This allows for an excellent wooden look on the surface,” states Mr. Kirchner. “We offer flexibility and see ourselves as the system partner of the furniture industry. We do not aim at a simple standard program, but instead we produce what our customers need.”

In a short period of time, high volumes of edgings are produced and subsequently stored. “Within just one week, we are able to supply the desired article,” points out Mr. Wagner. “Today, we can fall back on a stock of 6,000 edge bandings with wood decors and about 3,000 plain edgings. Branded ALPHATAPE ® edge bandings have become a synonym for quality in Europe.”

Following the extrusion process, edging decors like wood and metal, developed by in-house designers, are printed. Today, 75% of the entire production is exported, the majority of it to Eastern Europe, for instance to Poland, where important producers are among MKT’s customers.

In the coming years, the issues of consolidation and streamlining procedures will be high on the company’s agenda in order to keep a competitive edge. MKT will also focus on expansion in Eastern Europe, America and China.
