12.10.2009|Milan EMO most successful trade fair for GILDEMEISTER in 2009​​​​​​​

GILDEMEISTER with good trade fair results ​​​​​​​

Bielefeld. With order intake of Euro 52.6 million and 254 machines sold, GILDEMEISTER draws a positive balance of the EMO 2009 in Milan, which ended on Saturday evening. The most important machine tool trade fair in Europe was a complete success for GILDEMEISTER.

As the largest exhibitor, GILDEMEISTER presented 41 exhibits, including seven world premieres, over approximately 1,500 square metres. Its trade fair booth registered 61% more trade visitors than the previous EMO in Milan (2003). As a result, 254 machines to a value of Euro 52.6 million were ordered and additionally 1,251 new offers were generated. The innovations on display from the turning and milling technologies, as well as modern automation and software solutions, attracted a lot of attention from the trade visitors.

The orders received at the EMO reinforce our expectations for the fourth quarter; in addition, the first positive impetus for the financial year 2010 has been provided by the newly generated offers. Actual figures for the third quarter 2009 will be published on 5 November.
