Mazak achieves record sales in 2018

Yamazaki Mazak celebrated a record year for machine sales in 2018, due to strong performance across a number of key market sectors, including automotive, oil and gas, and medical.

“The resurgence of the oil and gas market was much-welcomed, and we saw great success with the sales of machines from the larger section of our portfolio, such as the Integrex e-H range of multi-tasking machine tools, as well as our MegaTurn vertical turning centres,” says Alan Mucklow, managing director UK and Ireland sales division.
“A particularly pleasing aspect of our 2018 sales performance was the volume of commodity machines, including the UK-made, entry-level QT Compact turning centre range, and the Quick Turn series,” he continues. “The company has invested heavily in improving its European Manufacturing Centre in Worcester in recent years, and it is especially rewarding to see that investment translate into shorter lead times and strong
sales for UK-built machines.”
