New Location Reaffirms Biesse's Commitment to Canadian Customers
June 22, 2009

Biesse Canada and Intermac Canada will soon complete their move into a brand new Canadian Headquarters located in Mirabel, QC, northwest of Montreal via Highway 15, exit 31. Construction of the new Canadian headquarters began in October 2008, and the new 25,000-square foot structure contains nearly 6,000 square feet of space dedicated for offices and meeting and training rooms. A number of green building approaches have been incorporated into the design, such as the liberal use of glass, which will let in abundant sunlight and lessen the need for electric lighting.

According to a company announcement, 6,000 square feet have been devoted to a showroom, where Biesse and Intermac machines will be demonstrated at in-house events such as the company's "One2One" educational series. The building also features a 13,000-square foot, 8-ton craned warehouse.

"The headquarters site in Mirabel was strategically chosen for easy access to freight transportation at the logistical airport of Montreal: Mirabel International Airport," said Federico Broccoli, president and chief executive officer of the North American operations of Biesse and Intermac. "The new Canadian headquarters will be located 5.8 km (3.6 miles) from this airport, and the proximity will allow Biesse to maintain our outstanding track record for shipping and provide the highest level of service and support to our Canadian Customers."
