Q1 sales up

Mills CNC, the exclusive distributor of Doosan machine tools in the UK, has reported stronger than expected first quarter sales. Machine deliveries and new machine tool orders for Q1 2017 were up 78% and 30% respectively on the year before. Among the reasons is a number of sales relating to large-capacity horizontal borers, double-column milling machines and vertical-turning lathes, most notably from manufacturers operating in the nuclear sector. In addition, the decision by Mills to offer customers the Siemens control option across its range of machining centres has paid dividends and resulted in a number of sales, most notably from new aerospace component customers.
