Company Profile

The firm was founded by Mr Kajetan Latschbacher in 1954. The company headquarters were moved to Kronstorf in 1967 which coincided with the start of production of lumber identification tags for felled section cut wood. Products with the brand name of SignuMat have been employed across the world in more the 40 countries ever since.

This system is fast and economical, as well as weather resistant and cost effective. The SIGNUMAT hammer and tags are used for the clean and durable marking of both length and section cut lumber. The consecutively numbered tags have the same function as car number plates for example. This means that you always know exactly which lumber belongs to you.

With the newest SIGNUMAT product, the DataMatrix or QR- Bar code tag, you can automatically record the consecutive numbering with a bar code =scanner. Other SIGNUMAT products include a plastic hand-axe for felling lumber, as well as light metal calipers for measuring section cut lumber.

 Alternative Structures is the agent for SignuMat products in South Africa.
