Intermac SpA, the glass division of the Italian-based group Biesse Corporate, has concluded an agreement which made it the sole owner of Busetti Srl, based in Bergamo, northern Italy, from 30 April. The takeover is part of a programme of rationalization of the Intermac group. According to a press statement from Intermac, production and turnover at Busetti“s new 3,500 m2 at Bagnatica in the province of Bergamo, are projected to increase to around ItL 30 billion in the next three years. General manager, Paolo Bracceschi confirmed that the Selci family (owner of Biesse Corporate) and the Busetti family were both completely satisfied with the agreement. Today, the marble and glass division of Biesse Corporate comprises three production units: Intermac (NC work centres, cutting tables and NC, straight-line bevellers), Busetti (bilateral grinding machines, drilling machines and handling systems) and Gieffe (equipment for glass shaping, bevellers and semi-automatic forming machines). Biesse Corporate also has a share in Diamut which manufactures diamond tools and moulds. Busetti“s sole director, Attilio Busetti, was reported to be pleased with the agreement, which will safeguard jobs within the company and allow for the complete integration of Busetti“s management into Intermac. More specifically, Attilio Busetti will be responsible for machine components at the Bergamo plant and will be in charge of engineering at the division level. Angelo Busetti is already successfully established in his role as technical manager for double edging machines and drills as well as giving support to the internal and external sales network. Within the process of reorganization of Busetti at the Bergamo plant, two new managers have been taken on: Giovanni Tamburini has been hired as plant manager and Marco Belli as technical director. After having been awarded ISO 9001 certification at its facility in Pesaro, Intermac is working towards achieving the same for its Bergamo plant. Biesse Corporate currently employs 1,300 people worldwide and from the very start has aimed to have a global market presence. Today, exports reach 83% due to the presence of sales agents and subsidiaries abroad. The Intermac Group has a 55% share of the global market in NC tools for working flat glass.
