Fives Machining Systems has announced the relocation of its Machine Tool Services & Solutions business to a new production facility. The headquarters of Machine Tool Services & Solutions will be located in Hebron, Kentucky, and will support the activity of over 20 service centers worldwide, including the seven in North America: Hebron, Kentucky; Seattle, Washington; Valencia, California; Wichita, Kansas; Charlotte, North Carolina; Fond du Lac, Wisconsin; and Cambridge, Canada.
The Machine Tool Services & Solutions business is said to provide productivity enhancements and service support to aerospace and industrial manufacturers for all machine tools in their facilities.
“With the tremendous growth we have experienced since the acquisition of the Konecranes MTS in January of this year and the addition of service centers in the markets of Wichita, Kansas, and Charlotte, North Carolina, our business has outgrown the space available in the former Konecranes MTS facility in Erlanger, Kentucky. This move provides the expanded floor space in a modern, climate-controlled facility that is needed to accommodate the retrofit and rebuilding of our customers’ key assets,” says Steve Thiry, president and CEO of Fives Machining Systems.
