Machine tool, accessory and automation supplier Methods Machine Tools (Sudbury, Massachusetts) is expanding its tech center in Elgin, Illinois. According to the company, this facility can provide complete turnkey installations and cellular automation for its full line of metalcutting and EDM machines.
The expansion comes on the heels of the company’s success at last September’s IMTS 2010 trade show, where it sold more than 50 machines, including almost all of those in its booth. The company says it is adding application engineers and service personnel to the expanded facility to meet increasing demand for its brands. It has also appointed a new general manager for the tech center, Mr. Imad Tsay, who will be joined by new Elgin sales manager Mike Land.
