A strong start with record numbers for Biesse at Ligna 2017
An extraordinary start to the show for Biesse at Ligna 2017, with record numbers which reflect the enormous success of the Pesaro-based colossus, with a stand spanning more than 5000 square meters at the Hanover trade fair, and increase of 37.3% in consolidated turnover, with a 14.2% rise in orders received and a 199.4% increase in net income recorded by the Group for the first quarter of 2017.
We started 2017 with an exceptionally strong first quarter compared to the same period of last year; it is worth pointing out, however, that the results for the coming quarters will join together to make up the numbers for the current year, all of which will go towards meeting the goals in our plan.
The interest garnered by the Machine Knowledge Center, a new platform developed in collaboration with Accenture that guarantees a series of features and services for obtaining more value from the machines, and by the renewed bSuite, a software suite made in Biesse that makes the most advanced technology accessible to anyone, are a testament to how strongly customers need products and services that can revolutionise traditional production areas.
Over the 5-day trade show a full 4,500 visitors from all around the world visited the Biesse stand, generating 45 million euros worth of incoming orders, 35% of which are 4.0 lines. Never before had the company achieved such figures at any trade show.
"We thank you all for this great success, all our employees and partners who contributed to creating the stand and, especially, all our customers, who have demonstrated that the bond between us extends beyond the quality of our technology and speaks to the great trust placed in the professionalism and reliability that the Biesse brand represents," Federico Broccoli stated in closing.
