It is always a pleasure to welcome our dealers and clients from all over the world, share with them the unique potential and performance of our best solutions for the timber industry as well as introducing them to the outstanding features of this area where some of our largest production sites are based. This was the case last week when we welcomed a delegation of more than 80 people in three groups of clients from Germany. They had a chance to get hands on experience in Rimini and Villa Verucchio of some of SCM's products and services including the "all-in-one" technology of the morbidelli m100 and m200 machining centres, discovering how a unique model manages to meet all the different needs of a company working with timber and advanced materials. Three full days of tech tour, but also a unique occasion to show our German partner companies, some of the most advanced in the transalpine woodworking industry, a few of the finer, well-known aspects of Rimini and Romagna: from the hills in the inland countryside to traditional food and wine which our German guests had an excellent opportunity to enjoy in San Patrignano. In the coming weeks, we will host numerous other clients from other countries in Europe and beyond. All thanks to a winning international team like our sales network and collaborators at our 20 branches around the world, which are directly controlled.
