Mark Mohr, president of DMG MORI North America, who was on hand to celebrate the grand opening, says the tech centre strengthens DMG MORI's position in Canada because it provides stronger technical support for the company's customer base. He adds that the new DMG MORI is also a stronger company.

"We can walk into any customer facility and we now have something for everyone because of the range of technologies and machines we now offer," says Mohr. "And with the new Tech Centre, we've shortened the supply chain because our machines are directly accessible to customers."DMG MORI CTX beta 800 TCClick image to enlarge
