INSIDE BIESSE Extra Date, launched in the wake of the October edition of the event, has just come to an end, having sold out a full week before it opened.
The three-day affair with the theme “Smart 4 All” was dedicated to technological innovation for companies and individuals working with wood and technological materials, drew customers from around the world to the Biesse Group Campus in Pesaro.
“We recorded a total of 6 million Euros in order intake at this event, on top of the 10 million Euros from October’s edition of Inside Biesse. Accordingly, our results are fully in line with the current trend for the Group, which now boasts 15% more growth than in the previous financial year – not far off our incredible 600 million Euro target,” commented Federico Broccoli, Wood Division Director/Sales – Subsidiaries Division Director for Biesse Group.
The event provides a comprehensive overview of the potential benefits that digitisation of the manufacturing sector can offer. A selection of 4.0-ready machines, systems and software was on display for businesses seeking to gain a competitive edge by optimising design and production processes, regardless of company size. Visitors also had the opportunity to attend a seminar entitled “Technology and design for everyone”, led by Biesse System and Sitech, the Saviola Group company which specialises in the production of edging, panels and exclusive cutting-edge surfaces. The Saviola Group demonstrated how, with the assistance of Biesse technologies, creative abstract thinking can evolve into finished material products, allowing businesses to anticipate market trends and transform these into innovative designs.
Alongside the resounding success of the recent Inside Biesse event, the Group also had an excellent week on the stock market, with stocks demonstrating one of the best performances seen all year. This positive trend was triggered by the publication of the Group’s accounts for the third quarter, which demonstrated Biesse’s continuing growth both financially and in terms of market share, building on the positive results achieved for the first six months of 2016.
