We are pleased that MINDA Industrieanlagen gave us the opportunity to show the entire technology of the Kielsteg components and their manufacturing technology to a wide specialist audience at this year’s MTC in Portland. Since the Kielsteg production plant developed by Minda Industrieanlagen and put into operation in Austria in 2011, there has been a technology partnership around the jointly generated expertise in lightweight cell construction and its manufacturing processes. The joint experiences with Kielsteg in recent years were the motivation to show the exemplary aspects of lightweight construction technology with a view to the acute key issues in the context of climate protection for the American wood community as a projection screen for their own priorities. Many interesting discussions were held with experts and interested parties from the wood industry and architecture. We are now looking forward to the follow-up discussions with interested parties. Many thanks to all visitors and organizers who contributed to the success of this year’s fair.
