We are now a supplier of Jowat adhesives and Riepe (electronically controlled spraying systems and chemicals)
Jowat SE with headquarters in Detmold is one of the leading suppliers of industrial adhesives. These are mainly used in woodworking and furniture manufacture, in the paper and packaging industry, for graphic arts, in the textile, automotive as well as in the electrical industry.

The company was founded in 1919 and has manufacturing sites in Germany in Detmold and Elsteraue, plus three other sites globally. A global sales structure with 23 Jowat sales organisations plus partner companies is guaranteeing local service with close customer contact.

The supplier of all adhesive groups is manufacturing over 90,000 tons of adhesives per year, with around 1200 employees.

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.

AWMS are pleased to announce that from 1st February 2014 they will be the new official Homag Group agents in Scotland.
With the exclusive rights to machine sales, spare parts and aftersales service.

We have had many years’ experience with the sales of Homag Group machinery as well as the installation and aftersales service. It makes sense to use the experience both in sales and engineering to support Homag products in Scotland.

This covers the full product line from CNC, Edgebanders, Handling & Timber frame equipment to name a few of the products in their extensive range.

AWMS have been installing machines in England and Ireland for many years, as a subcontractor for Homag.
We feel that they can contribute to Homag’s success in the UK, with their strong background associated with the Homag Group, and future commitment to group products and services.

We are now be embarking on intensive refresher courses, to make sure we are familiar with the most up to date products.
