This is a special month for Essetre: from 6 to 11 March, in fact, an event took place at the company, featuring the brand, staff (including Essetre North America President Walter Favruzzo) and some customers from our Charlotte branch in North America, professionals from the area, and our machines, which were in function during the first edition of this open house that we named Techno Tour.
The access to the event was limited to a few appointments by our own choice, as we wanted to devote all our time to the visitors, who were around 25 per day and during the week exceeded 100.
Our machines at work, for a demonstration in unison!
We had several machines at work, among which our Multiwall excelled, due to its large size and the work on a wooden housing structure. The other active working centres were:
Techno Fast, fast and versatile NC working centre for beam processing,
Techno Saw, fast and flexible, for milling, drilling and cutting operations on small sections
Techno Multiwall, ideal for processing wooden walls,
Techno PF, working centre in its various evolutions to process beams of different sizes.
Our international guests: Essetre Nord America.
The decision to open a branch in the United States, specifically in Charlotte (North Carolina), was based on the need to have Essetre-branded professionals in the area, where the market is rapidly expanding.
Here in Italy, compared to the US market, we were penalised by geographical distance and the time-zone difference. Our American customers need to know that Essetre is always on call and available for them, so three years later (the branch was opened in August 2020, during the pandemic) we can say that we made the right choice.
And Techno Tour 2023 was the proof.
A special environment close to home to introduce Italy to our guests.
One evening was dedicated to a guided tour and tasting of Italian specialities in the Villa Ca’ Rezzonico in Bassano del Grappa.
The location was chosen because the owner, a friend of the President of the American branch, had been waiting for a long time for us to visit the property. And what better occasion than this?
We then learnt through various stories that historical events connected to the United States actually took place in that Villa.
The owner took us on a wonderful tour of the historic building, telling us about the events and stories that took place in Bassano and in the Villa, which featured various American personalities.
Techno Tour 2023 was a success for our company, and we are ready to organise the next one.
