CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Wood manufacturing technology supplier Biesse announced the grand opening of its new 23,000 sq.ft.  showroom in Charlotte, North Carolina, on April 7 & 8, 2016. 

Construction is now completed and and Biesse says it is ready for tours of its new showroom, filled with over $3 million in machinery under power and ready for demonstration. The Biesse Group Charlotte Campus boasts a total square footage of 66,800 making it possibly the largest facility of this kind in North America.

“This campus has been built in three phases, first was the central building which, at the time, seemed very large, then 17 years ago we added the showroom and warehouse,” said Federico Broccoli. 

“The third phase is now complete and devoted to a new state of the art showroom fully equipped with machinery designed to host custom demonstrations, in-house events like our popular 'Inside Biesse' and educational events. With a goal to exceed all known industry standards, we have increased our spare parts warehouse, valued at an estimated $10 million, to maintain and improve our guarantee to deliver 96% of parts on the same day, and also investing in training projects across all technical areas."

Biesse says it dedicated the showroom to Anna Selci, the late wife of  Giancarlo Selci, who together, five decades ago, they decided to become entrepreneurs. They started in a garage and built Biesse Group into the company it is today.
