Once again we have been fortunate to work with the the RICHE Group, a family owned Belgian wood-processing company, who had to rebuild their factory after a fire in 2014. Before the fire they had three different briquette presses from C.F. Nielsen; however this time a more uniform consumer briquette was desired.
With the co-operation of our agent for Belgium Mr Alain Degraeve, the RICHE Group bought a complete production line; 2x BP6510 briquetting presses, saw- and packing equipment, to produce softwood briquettes for the consumer market.
C.F. Nielsen tailors the process from purchase to production to the customer’s specific needs. This was also the case for the RICHE Group. We developed a customized layout of the plant, in cooperation with the RICHE Group. While we produced the briquetting presses at our Danish production facility and coordinated with partners, the RICHE Group was busy preparing for the machines arrival. When the machines and the RICHE Group were ready, our skilled supervisor helped install the machines and start up production.
The RICHE Group is now capable of producing 2x1.25 t/h up to 24 hours a day. Combining teamwork, expertise and the RICHE Groups flexibility, we were able to start production of briquettes without any delays.
- A success story for all parties.
