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
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.
