LIGNA 2011: 2nd DAY

Jun 3, 2011 The acquisition of Balestrini, the SCM Group 50 years presence at Ligna, the tech tour with 40 international journalists and a full booth: many events for our 2nd day in Ligna. SCM Group and CMS Industries announced the acquisition of Balestrini, appreciated as manufacturer of special machines for the solid wood machining for 57 years, in the field of chairs, tables and similar products. Balestrini is now part of CMS Industries, as a consequence of the strong orientation of the Bergamo-based brand to the solid wood machining by special solutions. During the second day, SCM Group was awarded for its 50 years presence in Ligna, by Hannover Messe. The first booth was in 1961. The award ceremony was attended by the members of SCM Group board: Alfredo Aureli, Adriano Aureli, Andrea Aureli, Enrico Aureli, Giovanni Gemmani and Stefano Monetini and by the members of the Hannover Messe board. A group of 40 international journalists follow the “Press Tech Tour” starting from hall 11 when we show the novelties for the joinery and ending in hall 25 where we show novelties for the industry.
