Timion produces therapeutic products for South African children on Felder machines

Read
Timion NPC is a humanitarian Christian aid organisation in South Africa dedicated to supporting and promoting children and their families who are socially excluded and/or disabled. Over the past few years, more than 1500 children have been cared for in holiday and therapeutic camps and more than 4000 orthopaedic aid devices of their own production have been distributed free of charge.

These therapy chairs, rollators, walking aids, therapy benches and much more are manufactured by volunteers of the organisation in a small workshop in Jefferys Bay near the Indian Ocean. Felder Group has equipped this workshop with a number of high-quality tools and a Felder bandsaw.

"These machines are a real blessing to us. All workshop employees, from Swiss carpenters to young and old volunteers to trained local employees, enjoy working with the Felder machines," says Daniel Meyer, director of Timion NPC, together with his team. "The quality of the workshop was improved by the high-grade Felder machines. Again and again we are amazed at how versatile the Felder combination machine is. The bandsaw is used for conventional woodcuts and for the production of wood joints, but also, for example, to cut the foam material for the padding of our auxiliary equipment. In addition, the educational and technical books made available are a great benefit in training our local workers," reports Alfred Ramseyer, one of many long-term volunteers.
