ACIMALL fully supports Xylexpo 2012

The Acimall general assembly – held in Bologna last 24 June – confirmed full and unanimous support by all member companies to Xylexpo, the biennial international exhibition of woodworking technology and furniture industry supplies, to be held from 8 to 12 May 2012 in the Fieramilano-Rho Exhibition Center. According to the assembly's mandate, the association’s board of directors will deploy all energies and resources to ensure the greatest success of the exhibition, which has been the most important international review of woodworking technology in even-numbered years for over four decades.

The assembly has also entrusted the board to study and enforce possible disciplinary measures against member companies that decide to attend exhibitions (such as Technodomus in Rimini) directly and explicitly in competition with Xylexpo, considering such behavior non-compliant with the regulations of the Acimall statute.

“With this stance – said Acimall President, Ambrogio Delachi – the assembly does not want to limit the freedom of choice of each company, but rather give a clear message to fight the more and more frequent short-sighted initiatives that inevitably weaken the image of our industry and our country system, with consequences that, in the medium term, will bring serious damage to the entire industry if not promptly and strongly opposed”.
“Our stance is fully approved and shared by all European associations of woodworking machinery manufacturers which – through the Eumabois federation – have clearly declared their intention to exclusively attend Xylexpo 2012, as they consider it essential to take part in only one exhibition in order to avoid problems and confusion in the market”.

“The validity of our decision – Delachi added – is witnessed by the registration of many leading European companies to Xylexpo 2012, especially the most important German groups, for whom Milan is a key location for an exhibition that aims at a high level of internationalization, offering efficient connections and a well-designed exhibition center”.
