Training and team building for the SCM Italia sales network

Sep 11, 2019

An ever evolving technology testifying to SCM's incredible innovative skills which continue to return positive results. On 9 and 10 September, the CNC Morbidelli machining centres were the focus of attention during two days of training for the Italia sales networks at the SCM Headquarters in Rimini. An update on the numerous new technological entries which have strongly influenced the range over the last two years: from the AuthoR-Evolution launched with the “all-in-one technology” morbidelli m100/m200 machining centres, right up to the latest generation of solutions for morbidelli x200/x400 nesting, designed to meet the growing demand from the furniture industry. As demonstrated by the BU Manager for the SCM machining centres, Bruno Di Napoli, the finest resources were used to modernise the models following a continuous and extensive attention to client feedback and their needs in terms of productivity and flexibility. And the market rewarded the added value of this offer with a 30% rise in the sale of SCM machining centres in 2018. The two days were also an opportunity to compare results achieved in the first half of 2019. Luca Bergantini, Head of the SCM Italia Branch, pointed out that turnover is in line with the record figures achieved last year and in counter trend with the general negative economic situation in the timber industry.

Yet another reason to continue to work as a team. It is no coincidence that this first training session will be followed up by another training initiative on the latest edge banding technologies, from 23 to 25 September at SCM's production pole in Thiene. This is also in anticipation of the up and coming Smart Days due to be held again in Thiene from 6 to 9 November where the attention will focus on the new, highly technological and automated edge banding versatile cells. Ability and innovation: with SCM “You will never work alone”! This also applies to our sales staff.
