A story with three heroes: Sascha Kleisinger, his best friend Alexander Michel and the new NEXTEC 7735. These two carpenters founded their mutual company, the K&M Carpentry Shop, 17 years ago in a cowshed with 200 sq. meters of floor space.
From the very beginning the common idea was: “We want to build high quality, sophisticated, beautiful furniture.” Today the shop is located on a 6,000 sq. meter lot and has 30 employees. The prerequisite for such success stories is creative and rapid reaction to changes in the market. Sascha Kleisinger: “After just a short time, we started making plans to industrialize our carpentry shop, without sacrificing our positioning as a craft shop.” This was the time to take the third hero on board. The new NEXTEC 7735 from HOLZ-HER. This ingenious machine concept was the basis for the planned further growth perspectives. As the two carpenters saw their first NEXTEC demonstrations, they knew: That is precisely the CNC technology we were looking for.
On the 15 meter long machine with elevating table and conveyor belt, Sascha Kleisinger and Alexander Michel produce furniture components for regional carpentry shops as capable service providers. For this purpose a 1,000 sq. meter building was rented and a private company established with the name: Rheinhessen-Möbel [Rheinhessen Furniture] “This clearly shows that we are not competitors, but rather partners for our colleagues with fewer machines. But we also want to work for kitchen studios, who are otherwise dependent on the long delivery times in the industry.” K&M serves private customers exclusively.
Saws, edgebanders and CNC machining centers from HOLZ-HER were in operation at these successful carpenters from the very beginning. “This was the key to building up a bond of trust in the course of years. Technology, performance and service provide a perfect overall picture for us. This is also why we were confident in putting our full trust in a top machine like the new NEXTEC.“
