) welcomed 170 guests to the Grand Opening of its new headquarters in Warwick.
The event was attended by Kenichi Furukawa, president of Sodick Co Ltd (and son of Sodick’s founder Toshihiko Furukawa).
building has been designed with expansion in mind; and being on a 1.2-hectare site, there is space for further growth at a later date.
The new building features a large temperature-controlled showroom, as well as extensive training facilities for customers and dealers.
In addition to Sodick’s latest range of EDM technology, the new building showcases the company’s recently announced plastic injection moulding machines — and a new specialist milling machine.
There is also a dedicated production area for the OPM250L — a combination additive manufacturing/milling centre.
Sodick Europe has a turnover of £60 million, with 17 distributors serving more than 35 countries.
CEO Peter Capp says that by making this major investment in Warwick, Sodick has demonstrated its belief in the UK as a key location in Europe.
