In 1969, Biesse machines revolutionised 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 a intensive process of internationalisation, 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 machining tools and high-tech products designed by the Group's mechatronics division.
"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."
An anniversary that’s more than just a celebration. Biesse Group is celebrating 50 years, but we want to look to the next 50, when the things we imagine today will become who we are tomorrow. Every innovation ever created has stemmed from a yearning for the future and has since become a stepping stone in our history.
