Methods Machine Tools Inc. has entered into an agreement to represent Niigata Machine Techno USA, a manufacturer of horizontal machining centers, throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico.

“We are very pleased to announce this partnership,” says Jerry Rex, President and CEO of Methods Machine Tools. “The superior precision and dependability of the Niigata HMC line makes it an excellent addition to our high-performance machining solutions.”

"We look forward to having a long, mutually successful relationship with Methods," says Hans Retra of Niigata. "Methods' extensive distribution infrastructure, network of technology centers and applications expertise will help expand our brand in North America."

Niigata offers precise four- and five-axis HMCs and boring mills such as the heavy-duty, geared-head, box-way HN and HN-D series, and the high-production, roller-guideway N7 and SPN series. Machines that provide long-reach quill and bar spindles and the ability to perform turning operations on large stationary parts are hallmarks of Niigata’s HN-D series.
