ASSAGO, ITALY – Xylexpo, the biennial international exhibition of woodworking technology and furniture industry supplies, will take place May 13 – 17 2014 at the Milano-Rho expo center. Design and woodworking companies will showcase their work, along with wood-based material suppliers ranging from large global groups to small Italian and international companies.
The event will gather hundreds of companies committed to the development of new production methods with an eye to the environment, innovation, and natural resources. These companies include Ima Klessman, Robatech, Italpresse, Michael Weinig, Barberan, Camam, Casadei Industria, Essetre, Felder, Hundegger, Friulmac, Paolino Bacci, Siempellkamp, and Wintersteiger, among 300 other exhibitors.
“Italy is still a major global market, despite the problems caused by the economic challenge of this period”, said Juergen Koeppel, member of the board of Homag Group, commenting upon the next Xylexpo. “I am confident we will see recovery soon, because the Italian furniture industry can be competitive, and a global trendsetter for design and creativity.”
Xylexpo gives the opportunity to highlight specific trends and show the industry’s capacity for innovation, Koeppel adds. He believes the event is an important step for the calendar of industry exhibitions, not only in Italy but all over Europe.
