Biesse, Intermac Canada move to new headquarters
Italy-based Biesse S.p.A and Intermac Canada recently completed their move into a new Canadian headquarters in Mirabel, QC, and will mark the occasion with a three-day open house and One2One event for customers, according to a July 29 release.
The event takes place 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 28-30. The official ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held Oct. 28 at 2 p.m. and will feature a number of notable local public figures.
Canadian customers are welcome to visit the new building all three days and take part in the festivities that will include live machine and software demonstrations. Refreshments will be served daily, and experts will be on hand to answer customer questions about Biesse and Intermac technology.
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 improve energy efficiency by lessening the need for electric lighting, according to the release.
The building’s design keeps with that of the surrounding buildings and is wrought primarily of brick, steel and glass. Inside, a 6,000-square-foot state-of-the-art showroom allows for year-round live demonstrations of Biesse and Intermac machinery, and the building also features a 13,000-square-foot, 8-ton craned warehouse.
Biesse continues to maintain a 6,200-square-foot facility in Toronto, which includes a 5,050-square-foot showroom, and also utilizes the BCIT Showroom in Vancouver, BC. In an effort to enhance service for its Canadian customers, the company has been building up its overall presence, expanding its dealer network, and bringing aboard additional sales and technical personnel, according to the release.
