The company TS – Technischer Service Porta Westfalica GmbH, in the meantime many customers know them as TS Porta,
was founded in May 2012 and consists of a team of former employees of the Torwegge Holzbearbeitungsmaschinen
GmbH from Loehne/Germany.
After the decision to close Torwegge end of 2011 the founders of TS Porta decided to provide the know-how and the
decades of experience with Torwegge machines further to the numerous customers worldwide.
The Technischer Service Porta Westfalica GmbH was founded in May 2012 by Ralf Stratmann. He had worked for more
than 32 years as specialist for electrics/electronics, in the S5/S7 programming as well as worldwide in the field service.
Due to his many years in the field service he already knows many “old” customers and is perfectly familiar with the
complete Torwegge product range.
In September 2013 Michael Hagemann and Joerg Siewert joined the management of the new company.
For more than 8 years Michael Hagemann was head of field service department and worked in the spare parts department
at Torwegge. Thus, he is quite acquainted with the Torwegge machines and customers and is the correct contact person when
you require some advice or want to order spare parts as well as service for Torwegge lines.
Joerg Siewert worked more than 11 years as head of chain production, in the production planning and in the technical
sales department at Torwegge, so he is also an expert for the professional service of Torwegge machines as well as for the
customized sales of spare parts.
Moreover a former Torwegge field engineer belongs to the team. He installed, repaired, maintained and optimized
machines from the complete Torwegge production range worldwide.
Due to their experiences in the different departments of the company, TS Porta can provide the complete service
as well as the customized mechanical and electrical/electronical spare parts supply for the Torwegge equipment.
TS Porta is situated in Porta Westfalica. In the perfectly equipped production hall the team carries out the final assembly
of the spare parts and composes customer-specific spare parts packages.
The product range comprises spare parts and service including repair, maintenance, inspection, reconditioning,
optimization and modification for:
- Double End Tenoners
- Flooring Lines
- Blockboard Core Composers
- Solid Lumber Panel Composers
- Compound and Lighweight Panel Machines.
The TS Porta team provides professional support in the field of electrics, electronics as well as programming of
Siemens S5/S7 and IE controls.
Second-hand machines are also an issue for TS Porta. Not only do they organize and carry out the return and re-sale of
second-hand machines but also the complete dismantling, possible reconditioning work as well as re-installation and
commissioning of the machines.
The newly founded company TS Technischer Service Porta Westfalica GmbH set themselves the target to offer
Torwegge customers worldwide the first-class service for their machines they are used to and to help with words and deeds
at short-term notice and in a professional way whenever required.
