The 40,000 sq ft space is designed to house the combined workforce of SST Consumables and Global EDM Supplies, including the service, application, sales and operation departments. Additionally, a Makino showroom is incorporated into the facility for machine demonstrations and training, along with an ample warehouse to ensure product availability and quick delivery. 

With a facility to showcase an expanded product portfolio, increased application expertise and geographical reach, SST and Makino plan to offer process support to current and prospective customers with the utmost quality and seamless business operations, says the company.

“The year 2017 marks a renewed vision for Makino and SST,” says Andre Ey, vice president of EDM sales, Makino Inc. “This facility is a step toward our long-term strategy to provide customers with total process solutions and ensure they get the best possible consumable products to run their operations effectivity.
