Over the last thirty years, the company has specialised in the design and production of furniture items that optimise the space in the rooms where they're used, from the home to the workplace. Despite its growth within the market, the company has maintained its production site in Poperinge, Belgium. “Our market includes various target groups, from people looking for space to those who want to transform it and those who want to live one single area of the home in a multi-purpose way” explains Jan Van Hecke, CEO and owner.

Le Boone International was set up in a period when house prices were growing all the time: “with the rooms getting smaller, I glimpsed an opportunity. Thirty years ago, I started creating solutions for safeguarding space, fitting out small rooms with furniture items that had a dual function so the room could be a living room by day and a bedroom at night” says Van Hecke. The market of Le Boone International developed enormously within a short space of time, and that's why the company soon began to feel the need for machinery that would help speed up the production process so that the many market requests could be met. It decided straight away to invest, purchasing a whole Biesse line that now allows it to greatly reduce production and shipment times.

“After thoroughly analysing the market and evaluating the various solutions, we turned to Biesse. We received substantial technical support during the initial phase of choosing the product, discovering the multitude of possibilities in the huge Biesse range. Six months ago, we opted for a complete solution with a number of machines that work simultaneously in a line. “First of all”, continues Jan Van Hecke, “the Brema Eko 2.1, a vertical boring machine for real time panel machining, the Stream A lateral edgebanding machine, and the Selco WN 6 - a panel saw that stands out from its competitors for its amazing flexibility. The extent of the range, the flexibility of the products and the integration of technologies are the factors that have confirmed the efficacy and validity of our choice. For us, this has meant notable time saving, to the extent that after just one month we went from 3-month delivery times to just one and a half weeks, or two at the most. And all this with a general increase in the quality level as well. As a result, we've purchased a total of three Biesse machines”, concludes Van Hecke.
