Charlotte, NC March 27, 2009 – Biesse and Bacci, the leading manufacturers of machinery and systems for the woodworking industry, are pleased to announce that they have signed an exclusive distribution agreement. The partnership establishes Biesse America and Canada as the sole distributor of Bacci machinery in the US and Canada, excluding the Provinces of Ontario and Quebec.
With its 91 years of experience, Bacci maintains a primary position worldwide in the Solid Wood and chairs markets as well as in 5-axis CNC Machining centers implemented with high-technology operating software.
Biesse, a world leader in high-tech machinery and systems for wood, glass and stone fabrication, welcomes the partnership as a complement to their existing Solid Wood Program.
“Bacci’s strong reputation and complementary products and applications are logical fits with Biesse’s Solid Wood program,” said Federico Broccoli, CEO of Biesse and Intermac in USA and Canada, “The ability to offer customers Bacci technology allows for greater expansion into the Solid Wood markets and will also create new opportunities in industries such as traditional furniture, chairs, doors, aerospace, automotive, and plastics.”
Biesse will supply all existing Bacci customers with trained technicians, phone support and parts. Additionally, the Biesse Service Team’s Help Desk Software, powered by Microsoft SQL Server, is currently being upgraded to accommodate the Bacci machine lines.
Beginning March 27, 2009, Bacci customers may contact Biesse directly by calling their North American Toll Free number 1.877.5.BIESSE.
A combined statement by Roberto Selci, CEO of Biesse Italy, and Agostino Bacci, CEO of Bacci, said, “The friendship and the mutual respect of our companies goes back of several decades. We are both confident that our North American customers will be the main beneficiary of this agreement and we guarantee them consistent quality and excellent cooperation as we remain committed to jointly maintain a leading position in the Solid Wood Market”.
