GILDEMEISTER receives orders worth € 150.5 million​​​​​​​

Bielefeld. With order intake of € 150.5 million and 574 machines sold, GILDEMEISTER takes positive stock of the traditional open house exhibition in Pfronten. The results of the industry highlight, which ended on Saturday, confirm a satifying demand.

At the open house exhibition in Pfronten, GILDEMEISTER presented a total of 72 exhibits,six of which were world premieres . From 29 January until 2 February, 6,078 trade visitors gathered information on the trend-setting technologies of DMG and Mori Seiki. Especially international visitors, mainly from Europe and Russia (share: 57%), contributed to the visitors record. The main areas of focus of the open house were industry-specific solutions for the “Aerospace”, “Automotive”, “Medical” and “Energy Solutions” industries. A further highlight was the automation area where flexible solutions from modular integration to automated mass production were displayed.

GILDEMEISTER expects a further boost to come from the forthcoming events in the Asian growth markets – the Timtos in Taiwan (5-10 March 2013), the Intermold in Korea (12-16 March 2013) and the CIMT in Peking (22-27 April 2013).

On 14 March 2013, GILDEMEISTER will publish its figures on business development in 2012.
