Bielefeld. With order intake of € 51.4 million and 260 machines sold, GILDEMEISTER takes positive stock of the AMB in Stuttgart. This success at the most important German trade fair for the industry, which ended on Saturday, is a further indicator that demand for machine tools is also picking up again in Germany.
The AMB 2010 clearly marks the upwards trend in the machine tools industry. As the largest exhibitor, GILDEMEISTER presented 26 exhibits over about 1,200 square metres, including six world premieres. From the “Energy Solutions” business unit, the “cellcube“ big battery, our trend-setting energy storage system, was presented for the first time to industrial customers. At the DMG trade fair stand, a total of 5,232 trade visitors from 3,625 companies gathered information on our innovative technologies and trend-setting products.
GILDEMEISTER expects a further boost from the coming industry trade fairs, the BIMU in Milan (5-9 October 2010) and the JIMTOF in Japan (28 October - 2 November 2010). The latest figures for the third quarter will be published on 9 November 2010.
