Chicago, Illinois, November 8, 2010 – A new joint technical center in Houston will showcase DMG and Mori Seiki machine tools and technology for the energy and oil field industries. The official grand opening will be held in early 2011.
The 22,500 sq ft facility is one of the largest of Ellison’s 21 locations across the U.S and Canada and includes a full staff of over 25 service, application and sales engineers, including engineering support staff from DMG / Mori Seiki USA.
“Our vision for this tech center is to provide a place where our customers have access to the latest in machine tool technology, engineering services, automation, and robotics,” said Kevin Flanagan, President of Ellison Technologies Texas. “From the moment they walk in, we want them to have the ultimate manufacturing experience and leave with the ideas and tools to make their company more efficient, productive, and most of all, profitable.”
The 6,500 sq ft showroom was designed to demonstrate the latest in DMG and Mori Seiki technology and advanced machining processes. Customers will be able to see live demonstrations on technology specific to their business and create an opportunity for customer process testing and development. The facility also features a state‐of‐the‐art training and media area for customer seminars, product demonstrations and training sessions.
Ellison Technologies and DMG / Mori Seiki support engineers will be onsite to supply customers with engineering services including test cuts, turnkeys, and accessory integration. The nearby DMG / Mori Seiki distribution center in Dallas houses more than $125 million in spare parts.
“Not only was our tech center designed around our customers but also for our employees,” said Flanagan. “We have the best and most highly‐skilled people in the industry and it’s important for us to provide them the tools and environment to remain innovated and inspired. It’s truly the collaboration of people, technology, and engineering solutions that differentiates us from the competition.”
