Mori Seiki Opens U.S. Factory
The machine tool production facility in Davis, California is the company's first in the U.S.
On November 7, a ribbon-cutting ceremony marked the opening of Mori Seiki Manufacturing, a recently completed machine tool factory in Davis, California. The factory, a first for the company in America, is producing Mori Seiki NHX4000, NHX5000 and NHX5500 machines. More than 40 percent of the components of these machines are produced domestically, the company says, adding that domestic content will increase as it secures additional suppliers. To maintain economic and environmental standards, the temperature-controlled facility uses only dry and minimum quantity lubricant (MQL) machining.
