GILDEMEISTER with high order intake at the EMO

Bielefeld. With an order intake of € 162.6 million and a total of 526 machines sold, GILDEMEISTER takes positive stock of the EMO 2007 in Hanover that ended Saturday evening. At this most important trade fair worldwide for metal working GILDEMEISTER has achieved the highest trade fair order intake in the history of the company. Equally important are the 9,108 follow-up offers triggered at the EMO for business transactions after the fair and for the financial year 2008. 

GILDEMEISTER as the largest exhibitor with 4,000 square metres presented 70 exhibits, 14 of which were world premieres. The technical innovations and especially the new machine design attracted high attention with the international trade visitors.

The orders issued at the EMO confirm the positive development in the worldwide demand for machine tools. Due to the good business development, GILDEMEISTER once again will slightly raise the forecast for the entire year 2007 on the occasion of the quarterly report on 7 November.
