MCM partnership with RK International bears fruit After entering into a strategic partnership in the UK and Ireland with Erith-based RK International Machine Tools Ltd (, Italy’s Machining Centers Manufacturing Spa (MCM) took part in the Farnborough International Airshow.

Stefano Tirelli, MCM sales area manager, said: “Farnborough is a very important exhibition for MCM, as about 60% of our machines and systems are sold into the aerospace sector.

"The partnership with RK International allowed us to get our message across to visitors and exhibitors, and I am confident that our two businesses will grow together as a result.”

RK International staff were present throughout the show to support MCM, and there was a high level of interest in the company’s product range, which extends from single machines with automation through to complex multiple-machine flexible manufacturing systems.

“One of our major strengths is that we design and manufacture everything in-house, including the system management software. This gives us an ideal platform to provide the customisation that our clients require.”

Simon Rood, RK International director and general manager, said: “We were approached by MCM at MACH 2018 and were immediately impressed by the levels of technology and automation that they can bring to the aerospace
sector in particular.

"The success of our joint net- working efforts at Farnborough gives me the confidence that we have chosen a machine tool manufacturer of the highest quality to partner with.”
