The machine donation is part of Biesse's ongoing efforts to support skill development and growth in the industry.

Biesse has taken an initiative to promote skill development in the manufacturing industry with a recent donation of a Rover Gold 1232 CNC Machine & CAD/CAM software for advanced training to Hettich Poddar Woodworking Institute (HPWWi), Faridabad. This donation is in line with Biesse's earlier collaboration with the institute, where the company donated 1 Panel Saw & 2 Through-Feed Edge Banding machines.

The machine donation is a part of the reinforcement of their commitment with an MoU signing at DelhiWood 2023 (one of the biggest trade fairs in woodworking machinery & furniture production technologies in India) and their ongoing efforts to promote education and training in the manufacturing industry.

As a Skill Ambassador in the Furniture & Fittings Skill Council (FFSC), Biesse supports the skilling ecosystem in India. In collaboration with the Indian Council of Forestry Research and Education (ICFRE)/ and the Institute of Wood Science and Technology (IWST), they submit project proposals for woodworking technologies in different Forest Development Corporations and Common Facility Centres.

Apart from providing training programmes in educational institutes, such as the Advanced Woodworking Training Centre (AWTC) in Bangalore, the company is also involved in a Train the Trainer (ToT) initiative with various ITIs across India. Additionally, Biesse is committed to supporting AWTC/IWST in training technicians and carpenters from Naval DockYard, MEG, IAF, and PSU's. Through these initiatives, Biesse equips learners with the necessary skills to excel in the manufacturing industry, contributing to the growth of the skilling ecosystem in India.

 "India is the 5th largest manufacturer in the world and accounts for roughly 3 per cent of global manufacturing output. However, there is a clear dearth of talent and abilities, with approximately 90% of the workforce in the furniture industry being unemployed. In order to meet this demand, we as an industry leader are committed to investing in education and skill building to ramp up growth and development in the industry," said Sayeed Ahmed, CEO of Biesse India.
