Methods Machine Tools Inc. has announced that they are increasing their presence and operations in Southern California with the addition of Steve Raucci as general manager and will be opening a new, expanded technology center in Anaheim, Calif. New applications, sales and service staff are also being added to support the expansion.
“The expanded operations, key new personnel and support are critical to Methods’ west coast strategy,” says Fernando R. Garcia, Methods’ general manager based in Northern California. Garcia recently joined the company to head Methods’ west coast operations.
Mr. Raucci was a western regional manager for Methods Machine Tools since 2004. Prior to that, he ran successful businesses in Arizona and Illinois, selling and servicing EDM products for more than 10 years.
The new Southern California Technology Center will be approximately 12,000 square feet and will replace Methods’ previous center located in Buena Park California. The new, larger technology center will include a spacious showroom and classroom, and accommodate a full complement of Methods’ machines under power.
The center will have the latest machine tool and automation technology with application experts on-site.
