On September 20, 2017, Citizen Machinery announced that it would expand its sales base in Europe. It aims to expand sales by further aggressively targeting the European market.
In October 2018, a new sales office (photo) will be established in Birmingham, United Kingdom. Approximately 280 million yen is invested. Birmingham is an industrial city and the automotive and aircraft industries are evolving. The company had just a satellite office there so far. However, in order to meet the growing demand in the future, the company decided to establish a new base.
The new site also has a showroom that exhibits 10 actual machines, and offers services such as test cuts. The number of engineers will be increased to respond quickly to customer needs.
Furthermore, in March 2018, the company will relocate and expand its headquarters in Bergamo, northern Italy. In 2016, sales in the country doubled compared to 2013. In anticipation of future business expansion, the company will relocate its headquarters to a location twice as wide as the current. At the same time, showrooms and warehouses will be newly established at the new headquarters. Service functions are also strengthened and respond to demand expansion.
