Matsuura Machinery Corp. is opening a new technical centre and spindle repair facility in St. Paul, MN, to better service its North American customers. The move marks the company's decision to become the master importer of Matsuura machining centres for the US market.

The technical centre is slated to open in the first quarter of 2013, while the spindle repair facility will be operational before the end of the year.

The site will include a large showroom and demonstration area, conference and training room, storage for machines, accessories and spare parts, and offices for administration, service and engineering application support staff. The site will also house Matsuura's new US subsidiary, Matsuura Machinery USA.

In Canada, Matsuura is represented by Elliott Matsuura Canada Inc., Oakville, ON. Frank Haydar, president, says the closer geographic presence of Matsuura Machinery will benefit Elliott Matsuura and its Canadian Matsuura machine customers by providing additional sales and technical support.

"Elliott will have access to MMU (Matsuura Machinery USA) technical resources, and Matsuura applications and service engineers will be closer to Canada."

And with a local spindle repair facility close by, "Canadian customers will benefit from the reduced cost of spindle repair and turn-around time."
