The latest addition to XYZ Machine Tools’
nationwide chain of showrooms and technical centres was greeted with enthusiasm when the doors of its new facility in Scotland were officially opened yesterday (23 February). Located in Livingston on the outskirts of Edinburgh, the new showroom attracted customers from far and wide, with numbers exceeding the most optimistic forecast.
Nigel Atherton, XYZ Machine Tools managing director, said: “Given the ongoing Covid-19 and geo-political situations we were not over optimistic about attendance at the opening.However, the engineering sector in Scotland has proved resilient and we had a pleasant surprise with the level of interest and a constant flow of visitors throughout the day.”
With almost 50 visitors from 18 companies coming through the doors before lunchtime the signs were excellent and, after lunch the positivity continued with another seven businesses sending representatives to see the wide range of XYZ machines on display.
“The most positive thing about the day was that these visitors weren’t just looking, they were here with serious intentions to buy, and we took three confirmed orders, with another six due to be confirmed in the coming days when finance has been approved. We are also confident that more will follow.”
The opening of the showroom in Scotland is part of XYZ Machine Tools’ expansion plans for 2022, which will see another showroom opened in Huddersfield in the next couple of months, along with an extension to its Devon headquarters in Burlescombe that will provide more space for applications engineers to work with customers, as well as enhanced facilities for its employees.
