Biesse confirms its leadership position on the international market at Xylexpo 2018. A record 21.6 million euros in orders is evidence of the constant growth already anticipated by the results of the 2018 quarterly, which showed a +18.2% increase in incoming orders for the wood division compared to the previous year. The orders portfolio of the Group has also increased by 24%, reaching a value of 234 million euros, the highest in the history of the group.
The 3000 m2 Biesse stand at Xylexpo 2018 received visitors from all over the world, which underscores the event’s international nature, European countries prevailed with some people from across the ocean being drawn by the great innovation that characterises the event. Meanwhile, Italy continues to see the fair as a key reference point for discovering what the market has to offer. Biesse noted a significant Italian presence at the stand, more than in the past, accounting for 38% of the total for incoming orders, evidence of the intense responsiveness of the Italian market.
“We are very proud of these results, which confirm Biesse’s leadership in innovation and technology and are a testament to the fact that our customers, regardless of their size, want to move toward a more evolved and efficient approach to work and productivity with support from Biesse,” stated Federico Broccoli, Director of the Wood/Sales Division & Director of the Branches Division.
Biesse has once again confirmed its incomparable push for innovation, offering automated solutions for companies of every size. Technology to facilitate everyday work is entering not just large factories but also small businesses that have recognised the great value Biesse machines have to offer.
Biesse’s investment in Xylexpo with a stand that focuses on automation and on the digitalisation of the factory has proven to be the right strategic decision. Companies of every sort showed great interest in the 4 automated solutions present on the stand, solutions capable of increasing efficiency and continuity in production, simplifying daily tasks.
Along the same lines, the implementation of the SOPHIA service platform, presented at Xylexpo as a solution for the digitalised factory, caught the attention of the many journalists at the stand.
“The trade shows and events Biesse has participated in over these past years have been a great source of satisfaction thanks to the increasing success we’ve had with visitors and customers who are seeking us out and relying on us to support their growth” stated Raphaël Prati, Biesse Group Marketing and Communications Director. “The interest we receive from them drives our own growth as we search for excellent technology that can transform the manufacturing process” Prati said in closing.
The enthusiasm continues as Biesse focuses on the markets in Oceania and the United States for the next events on the schedule: AWISA in Sydney from 4 to 7 July and IWF in Atlanta from 22 to 25 August.
