‘Future in Tour’ includes celebratory events to mark the company’s birthday with its customers throughout the world
The Biesse Group celebrates 50 years of Innovation and Technology, remembering half a century of history and success, with an irrepressible focus on the future. As part of the celebration, the company is touring the world with a programme of events dedicated to its customers, with a single common denominator: looking towards the future.
In 1969, Biesse machines revolutionized the furniture market, with solutions that served to set new technological standards in the industry. In just a few years, the company became an integral component and driving force within the Italian furniture district, conquering the entire national territory
Then, in 1989, the opening of the company’s first foreign subsidiary marked the beginning of an intensive process of internationalization, which helped to establish the brand worldwide.
A journey marked by ambitious decisions, partnerships and investments in research, which enabled the company to create cutting-edge machinery, not only within the wood sector, but also for processing glass, stone, technological materials and metal, along with high- tech products designed by the Group’s mechatronics division and machining tools.
A history built upon the genius and vision of founder Giancarlo Selci, which is now being carried forward by Roberto Selci, the CEO of the group, who has succeeded in strengthening this ‘pocket- sized’ multinational, surrounding himself with strategic skills and expertise, thus increasing both the knowledge and technology within the company.
The Group has decided to dedicate the ‘50 year’ anniversary celebrations to the future, through a programme of activities which will be rolled out throughout 2019
Today, Biesse is an international group – a company that knows how to speak to the world.
Biesse is profoundly aware of the fact that technology is innovation, and that in turn, innovation is only truly possible if it remains focused on the future, and on what it can create, and even before that, on what it can conceive and imagine.
As the founder of the Group, Giancarlo Selci, once said: “Innovation lies in details, and in careful attention to detail. It calls upon us to open our eyes and our horizons, diminishing obstacles and transforming them into opportunities, making each and every goal real. It is a switch that we can use to kindle curiosity and knowledge, creating the future.”
Believing in the future also means channeling significant investment into producing tools and machines that can provide its customers with greater production efficiency, simplifying their work whilst ensuring the highest levels of safety, and improving the interaction between mechanical, electronic and software elements, making the products created by the Group both ‘intelligent’ and ‘collaborative’.
The first step on the path which leads into the future was taken by Biesse when the Group decided to focus on creating digital factories tailored to each individual customer, from the smallest artisan producers to the biggest businesses.
The Group has decided to dedicate the ‘50 year’ anniversary celebrations to the future, through a programme of activities which will be rolled out throughout 2019 LIGNA 2019.
“The contribution that our people have made to the business over all these years is a central theme. It is their work and their knowledge that has helped Biesse enjoy such great success globally. Accordingly, it is crucial that we listen to everyone, focusing on engaging and motivating each and every employee, from our manual workers to the Executive Director. Everyone must focus on doing what they are best at, and we must help each other to continue to grow and improve. And we can only do this well if we do it together,” concluded Selci.
