Mazak says the moves will allow Mazak to work more closely with customers in all provinces in Western Canada and provide extensive service and support.

The new Mazak distributor, Moretti Machine Tools Inc. based in Edmonton, AB, will cover Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. Company president Alex Moretti has 25 years of experience in Western Canada, including 17 years in machine and tooling sales, with many years selling Mazak equipment with an emphasis on customer relationships and service.

The Moretti Machine Tool facility will serve as a technical centre and complement Mazak’s strong commitment to its Canadian Technology Centre at the Canadian headquarters in Cambridge, ON. Moretti’s Technical Centre will provide training, conduct machine demonstrations and host special technology and education events. A Mazak service and applications group located in Alberta will provide service and support for Moretti Machine Tool customers in Western Canada.

Ray Buxton, general manager of Mazak Canada, says he and his team are excited to have Moretti Machine Tool on board and to begin working directly with those Mazak customers in British Columbia. He also noted that, going forward, British Columbia customers should now contact Mazak’s facility in Cambridge for all their machine, service and support needs.
