The commercial strategy
Sigma chose Europe as the main market for its
Vertical Machining Centers. Current trend share is 40% for domestic market whose demand is
extimated in 600/800 units per year. The main foreign markets are represented by Germany
and France both covered by a widespread network of sole agents. In the other European
countries a group of Agents and resellers, acting in the name of Sigma offer a skilled

Sigma's management considers QUALITY the main
route to achieve success, and it is convinced that to reach quality the whole production
cycle must be carried out whithin its workshop, committing to subcontractors only minor
and/or specific operations.
From year to year, large-scale investments in machinery, plants and personeel training are
made to reach this goal. Moreover the concepts of standardization and mass-production were
introduced to achieve the best QUALITY/PRICE ratio and the consequent success in sales on
a growing market.
