Biesse SpA launches machinery manufacturing plant
Biesse SpA, the Italian leader in integrated machines and system for wood, glass and stone processing, has inaugurated its new manufacturing plant in Nelamangala (Bangalore).
With its eight productive plants, over 210 industrial patents and 2,500 employees, Biesse is the first operator in the world for the creation of numerically-controlled work centres (wood and glass) and second for lines and turnkey system for great industries.
Present in over 100 countries, Biesse markets its products and offers an after sales service worldwide through a network of 30 subsidiaries, sales offices and agencies, with over 300 agents and retailers.
Riccardo Quattrini, sales and marketing director, Biesse SpA, said: “The mission is to produce locally and sell in Indian and Asian markets a range of high quality woodworking machines, while providing an excellent service support to the customers.”
The Biesse management also inaugurated the productive plant of 5800 sq m in Nelamangala. Biesse Manufacturing Pvt Ltd is an Indian company wholly owned by Biesse Spa. The strategic investment of US$5.7 million (Rs28 crore) in the productive plant is part of the 2008-2010 Biesse industrial plan and it allows the group to supply the Asian markets.
Biesse’s choice to manufacture in India was driven by several benefits. One of these is the availability of world class people.
Other plus of Indian investment are definitely the suppliers of critical components and the possibility of search and provide locally the raw materials and parts needed for the machines construction.
