Mazak distributor, Northwest Machine, serving Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota and western Wisconsin, will host a grand opening for its new headquarters in Rogers, Minn. The event, scheduled for April 30 – May 1, will feature facility tours, advanced manufacturing system demonstrations and technical seminars. A special student day on April 29 will kick off the event and have local manufacturers discuss careers in the industry with area youth.
As the manufacturing sector continues to grow in Minnesota and the surrounding region, Northwest Machine, through its new 22,600-square-foot facility, can offer high levels of customer support. The company will provide even more localized technical training, service and applications support as well as engineered turnkey manufacturing systems and automation solutions.
Northwest Machine employs 18 people, four of which are engineers, at the new headquarters. With the additional space, the company has expanded its tooling, accessories and applications engineering department, its service and training departments and robot automation division, as well as its technology center area. The building also features ample office space, a large conference room and vendor/supplier lounge area.
Northwest Machine’s all-encompassing in-house automation division not only offers hands-on robot training courses, but also works closely with Mazak’s Automation and Systems Group to furnish customers full robot integration services for their Mazak machines. Customers further benefit from Mazak’s comprehensive approach to automation solutions together with the local expert service and support from Northwest Machine to boost productivity through better machine utilization.
