For Herman Pacific „quality comes first“

Since 2012, Herman Pacific Limited has a WINTERSTEIGER thin-cutting band saw DSB Twinhead NG with 2 modules in operation.

Herman Pacific, producer of timber flooring, wall and ceiling pannelling, claddings and deckings, carried out many months of due diligence worldwide to find a thin kerf cutting and handling system to meet their strict criteria for accuracy and quality. WINTERSTEIGER was the choice for the cutting unit as Herman Pacific was assured of WINTERSTEIGER's ability to meet and maintain this standard.


For Graeme Carter, the director of Herman Pacific, the main reasons for the investment in the WINTERSTEIGER thin-cutting technology are the precision, the thin kerf and the huge capacity: „Our philosophy 'quality first' agrees with the WINTERSTEIGER approach – meaning both the machine and the customer service.“ After an enquiry from the WINTERSTEIGER web site Herman Pacific confirmed in 2011 after having visited the Thin-cutting Days in Ried in Austria.
