Biesse at Xylexpo: a great success!
Ten million thanks!
There was no better place to present the Biesse Group's new image. With over 15,000 visitors (official figures show an increase in visitors from both Italy and abroad), Xylexpo 2014 was the ideal opportunity to confirm Biesse's international, innovative nature and reaffirm its dedication to excellence with machines, systems and software that are capable of providing companies in the wood industry with real benefits and competitiveness.
“We found the trade fair very satisfying" Cesare Tinti, Director of the Wood Division at Biesse said, "both with regard to the large number of visitors who came to our stand and, above all, the positive feedback we have received from our clients and the orders generated at the trade fair. We estimate total sales of around 10 million euros which will be formally confirmed over the next few weeks. This figure highlights the clear signs of recovery seen throughout the event not only for countries that confirm a rising trend like Turkey and Poland but also for more difficult markets like the Italian one”.
Xylexpo also coincided with approval of the group's financial statements for the first quarter of 2014 which have confirmed an extremely positive number of orders especially for the “systems” sector which, during the first few months of the current year has received orders for large-size systems to a value of approximately 15 million euros. All this is testimony to the growing reputation that Biesse has for offering its most demanding clients solutions with a high technological content.
On a stand covering over 1800 square metres, attention focused on the bLab gallery, a real laboratory of ideas which made its première appearance at Xylexpo. “An important part of our stand was allocated to demonstrating the advantages that our software can offer to those who work in the wood industry, as well as the glass and stone industries, by using our machines and our systems", Raphaël Prati, Director of Marketing & Communications in the Group said. "In this work area, visitors were also able to admire works and objects created by leading names in Italian and international design and products manufactured using Biesse Group technologies in a wide variety of sectors because we believe that the quality of Biesse solutions is best expressed by what our machines create”. A ten million thanks to all those who have made this great success possible!.
