Ignacio Mera, Ibarmia’s area sales manager for the UK, said: “Ibarmia is now a leading world reference in moving-column machining centres and universal machining centres.
“Through working together with Dugard, engineers in the UK will now have the opportunity to invest in the highest level of technology with the best local service support.
“We are excited to bring the success of our solutions to the UK, and we are confident Dugard is the perfect partner for it.”
Eric Dugard, managing director of C Dugard Ltd, said: “We are delighted to be appointed as the exclusive dealers for Ibarmia.
“In recent years, we have been aware of just how successful the company’s machines have become.
“There is a full line-up of three-, four -and five-axis travelling-column machines with X-axis travels from 1.5 to 12m — and turning capabilities.
“Ibarmia manufactures in the Basque region of Spain, an area renowned for its heavy-duty machine tool building and innovation.”
