APOS and Fagus-GreCon agree on strategic cooperation

Fagus-GreCon Greten GmbH & Co. KG (‘Fagus-GreCon’) in Alfeld and APOS GmbH (‘APOS’) in Wedel have agreed on a strategic cooperation in the field of spectroscopy-based measurement systems. The cooperation between the two companies includes not only cooperation in market development but also cooperation in the area of service and support.

By using the worldwide sales and service network of Fagus-GreCon, the availability of the APOS systems can be ensured even better than before. Joint product developments are also part of the agenda. Heinrich Unland, Managing Director of APOS, is convinced that Fagus-GreCon is the perfect market and service partner for APOS’ solutions. “Our product portfolios fit together perfectly and we see great joint potential,” said Unland.

Spectroscopy-based systems for moisture measurement have established themselves in recent years. By adding new applications such as pH value measurement or determination of the resin quantity along the entire process chain the number of applications is growing rapidly – from the acceptance of the raw material at the factory gate to quality assurance on the finished plate.

Through its cooperation with APOS, Fagus-GreCon is expanding its product range with APOS spectroscopy systems specially developed for the wood-based panel and paper & pulp industries. “This addition to our product portfolio enables us to support our customers even better than before in optimizing their production processes. Our customers now benefit from the expertise and technology know-how of both companies,” says Dr. Jörg Hasener, Head of Fagus-GreCon’s Metrology Division.
