Makino reports on significant growth in Europe and Asia

Japanese machine tool manufacturer Makino Milling Machine Co., Ltd. reports on a financial year of stable global turnover. Major growth in the export business compensated for a weakened demand in the domestic market. Despite vast political uncertainties around the world, record-high turnover levels were achieved in the Americas, Europe and Asia. Orders from Europe were up by more than 70% with major contributions from the aerospace and industrial components sectors. In the year of its 80th anniversary, Makino will launch numerous new technologies at the EMO in Hannover where a wide spectrum of 5-axis, automation and Industry 4.0 solutions will be exhibited.
