Citizen officially opens Midlands facility

More than 150 people attended the official opening of Citizen Machinery UK’s new £3m Turning Centre of Excellence in Brierley Hill, West Midlands last month.

The 680 sq m facility houses a showroom, international conference area, customer training school, applications engineering department and administrative offices. Sales of Citizen machines in Europe have increased year on year and, in 2018, the region sold 1200 units, taking turnover to nearly €600m, the highest ever.
Visitors on the day comprised the firm’s more than 50 UK employees, including those from the headquarters in Bushey, company representatives from Japan and around Europe, dealers and supplier partners from Japan, France, Italy, Portugal, Scandinavia and Israel, and staff from the contractors that realised the difficult building job over disused mine shafts in just 26 weeks.
