Biesse Group ‒ lead by CEO, Roberto Selci, is a global manufacturer of technology for wood, glass, stone, plastic and metal processing ‒ sought a new technology partner to diversify its manufacturing solutions. The two companies aim to co-develop a new product line of hybrid manufacturing technologies that leverage Massivit 3D’s advanced, large-volume additive manufacturing technologies and Biesse’s broadly adopted subtractive manufacturing technologies.
By leveraging Biesse Group’s established commercial networks across multiple verticals, this mega distribution deal will enable Massivit 3D to markedly expand its market reach. Biesse Group operates through 39 branches with a thriving customer installed base in 120 countries. It is publicly listed on the Italian Stock Exchange with a turnover of €706 million in 2019.
The collaboration will also empower Biesse Group to partake in the 3D printing revolution that is escalating across a range of manufacturing industries.
The agreement between Biesse Group and Massivit 3D emerged as part of Biesse Group’s Open-I project – a dynamic Innovation Lab established to cultivate connections with other companies, universities, research centers, accelerators, and venture capital firms in order to leverage digital transformation and Industry 4.0 advancements.
The partnership was initiated by AdlerInlight’s CEO, Roberta Anati, who identified technological and commercial synergies between the two leading technology providers.

Roberto Selci, CEO of Biesse Group, stated: “Today is the first step towards a new, profitable path towards innovation. Fundamentally, we aim to broaden our company’s boundaries and also our mental horizons.
