CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Machine Solutions of Jasper, Indiana, was presented with Biesse’s 2.0 Distributor of the Year award at the company’s world headquarters in Pesaro, Italy.   

Biesse America vice president of distribution Mike Johnson noted that the 2.0 Distributor award is no longer based solely on sales. It is now a 360-degree evaluation of a distributor’s efforts in market coverage, sales intelligence, events and demos, sales growth and product mix.

“Machine Solutions received the highest overall rating and was a deserving winner of this year’s Distributor 2.0 award,” Johnson said.

In addition to winning the award, Machine Solutions recently moved into a new 10,000-square-foot location with a strong emphasis on automation. The heavy concentration of high-volume producers in the area has warranted a showroom focused on Industry 4.0. Machine Solutions and owner Rick Braun are providing that as they successfully build on a strong relationship with Biesse that began in 2006.
