Intermac Glass & Stone Division and Biesse Wood Division Canada (www.biesseamerica.com)—both part of the Biesse Group (www.biessegroup.com) have recently completed their move into new Canadian headquarters in Mirabel, QC, northwest of Montreal, and will mark the occasion by providing a three-day open house event for their customers.

The event takes place from October 28 to 30 and will run all day each day. An official ribbon cutting ceremony will be held on October 28th and will feature notable local public figures.

Canadian customers are invited to visit and take part in the festivities that will include live machine and software demonstrations. Refreshments will be served and experts will be on hand to answer customer questions about company technology.

Construction 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. Green building approaches have been incorporated into the design—the liberal use of glass will let in abundant sunlight and improve energy efficiency by lessening the need for electric lighting.

The design keeps with that of the surrounding buildings and is primarily of brick, steel, and glass. Inside, a 6,000 square foot showroom allows for year-round live demonstrations of machinery. The building 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 utilizes the BCIT Showroom in Vancouver, BC. In an effort to enhance service for Canadian customers, the company has been building up its overall presence, expanding its dealer network, and bringing aboard additional sales and technical personnel.
