Acimall, the Italian woodworking technology manufacturers’ association, reports that Q2 2010 showed significant signs of recovery.

Figures released by Acimall indicate that the industry has grown by 69.8% from the same period of the previous year: orders from abroad recorded a 63.6% increase, with an even stronger trend on the Italian market (up by 83.3%).

It should be noted that this strong rally on the domestic market results from a situation where domestic sales had dropped to very low values, although there are good hopes that the next quarters may bring additional expansion to push the industry up to acceptable levels again.
