Machine tool builder Mori Seiki reports it has entered into a distribution agreement with Ellison Technologies to supply and service manufacturers and machine shops in Canada. “Having Ellison Technologies as our new exclusive distributor in Canada will allow us to leverage our valued partnership and synergy we currently share in the U.S.,” stated Mori Seiki America’s president Jim Okada.
Mori Seiki Ltd. is one of the world’s largest designers and builders of machine tools, as well as peripherals and systems. Ellison Technologies has supported Mori Seiki products in British Columbia for the past 14 years. It has been in business in the U.S. for more than 50 year, identifying itself as a total manufacturing solutions provider.
The Canadian expansion makes Ellison Technologies the largest machine tool distributor in North America. The Mori Seiki partnership will begin with the opening of a new technical center and showroom in Mississauga, Ont.
“We’re very excited about expanded partnership with Mori Seiki in Canada,” stated Ellison Technologies’ Western Region and Canada president Graham Hooper. “We pride ourselves on the fact we’ve been able to grow as a result of the success and growth of our customers. We look forward to this continued partnership approach with the Canadian market by enabling them to become globally competitive through the integration of advanced technology, robotic automation and engineering capabilities.”
