Founded in 1865, Anthon GmbHs core competencies are in the field of machinery manufacture for the wood-processing industry. The history of the company, that now has over 150 employees, began with the manufacture of wine and whisky barrels. The systems, which are used for processing boards, are designed and built by Anthon GmbH itself. For example, IKEAs ever-popular product Billy is manufactured on an Anthon system. The design of such systems of course requires a great deal of expertise in the fields of software and hardware. Automation is becoming ever more important, even in the wood industry. Robots are used for handling tasks and for tending machines, but also in manufacturing systems. The key market requirements in this respect are flexibility and high availability.
