Diamut Manufacturing to Open First North American Facility
Biesse Group is opening its first manufacturing facility on American soil to assemble Italian-engineered Diamut diamond profiling wheels for glass, stone and ceramic processing. The company says its customers in the U.S. and Canada will gain shorter lead times and customer service closer to home after the new facility opens on the Biesse Charlotte Campus in North Carolina.
“Our new Diamut tool manufacturing facility will enable us to respond to growing market needs in our North American market and help us meet the expectations of Diamut customers worldwide,” says Federico Broccoli, president and CEO of Diamut America. “Having a manufacturing facility in Charlotte reinforces our desire to make our technology and innovative solutions available to any company looking to maintain competitiveness in their businesses.”
“We are devoted to our North-American customers, so establishing a presence to support them, as well as strengthening our distribution network, is a major priority for us,” adds Alan Hooper, Diamut America and Canada manufacturing engineer.
Gianluca Grianti, Diamut tooling division director, says the new facility will benefit from a mix of Italian and American DNA.
“The powerful blend of Italian engineering and American manufacturing has been successful in the past and has proven to provide a variety of technical advantages.
The new manufacturing operation in the Airport Corridor of Charlotte, N.C., is part of a $3 million expansion of the Biesse Group Charlotte campus that will also include a 12,000-square-foot office addition and future enhancements.
