With an instinct for optimisation possibilities for automatic edge processing, Hans E. Riepe, our company founder, laid the foundation stone to market leadership 30 years ago. We Riepe® GmbH & Co KG in Buende, develop and produce electronically controlled spraying systems for the woodworking industry together with the relevant chemical products.
Prior to the introduction of our systems residues e.g. glue residue on the workpiece, had to be removed manually costing time and effort. The Riepe® spraying systems together with the chemical products deliver the workpiece from the edge and wood processing machines in finish quality, directly to dispatch. Post processing is no longer required.
