Flexible Surface Coating for 1000 and One Functional Door Nicole Mihlan VENJAKOB Maschinenbau GmbH & Co.KG - Rheda-Wiedenbrück, Germany

RWD Schlatter, the Swiss market leader for functional doors in the contract sector, does not focus on standards in volume, but on variety. This variety must be produced in the shortest possible time and in the most diverse quantities – starting from a one door batch – in a customer-oriented manner. Cost awareness, quality aspects as well as a higher flexibility in the production process were decisive reasons to carry out the surface treatment inhouse via a modern door coating line. For this purpose, the production hall at the headquarters in Rockwill was expanded and a door finishing line from Venjakob, which was individually adapted to the customer’s needs, was set up and put into operation during ongoing production.
