The breakdown of consolidated revenues by geographical area reveals growth in Western Europe (+17.6% compared to the same period of 2013 – representing 28.8% of total sales) relating to contingent factors (UK orders) and to specific factors associated with the increasing quality of products made by Biesse.

The domestic market, Italy, accounts for a stable proportion of consolidated revenues (10.2% of total sales) although the impact of any potential positive impact of incentives approved or under way have still yet to be felt.

There was a substantial improvement in the volume of Biesse sales generated in North America (+18.8%), in Eastern Europe (+28%) and in Asia-Australasia (+8,3%) compared to that reported for the first nine months of 2013.
