Agie Charmilles Announces Consolidation of Brands; Changes in Top Management

July 17, 2007

Agie Charmilles has combined its Agie, Charmilles and Mikron brands under a new brand identity, known as GF AgieCharmilles. This unification will allow the company to offer industry-leading solutions in the complementary areas of EDM and high-speed and high-performance machining, all under a single brand.

Also, Harry Moser was named Chairman of Agie Charmilles US, and Glynn Fletcher is now President. This transition coincides with the consolidation of Agie, Charmilles and Mikron. “I am very comfortable handing the responsibility to Glynn,” said former President Harry Moser. “His strategic vision and innovation have been key to the successful integration of Agie, Charmilles and Mikron over the last year.” Moser served as president of Charmilles US and then Agie Charmilles since 1985.

Commenting on the consolidation of the brands, new president Glynn Fletcher said, “The unification of our previously separate brands demonstrates a new level of commitment to our customers. In addition to capitalizing on best practices and expanding our sales and service networks, we are now able to offer customers the best possible technology for their specific applications, all under a single brand.”
