Romi and United Precision Services unite for CNC salesClick image to enlargeRomi USA has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with Cincinnati, Ohio-based United Precision Services (UPS) to sell Romi's line of heavy-duty horizontal and vertical CNC lathes across the USA and Canada.

"We're excited about the opportunities this relationship means to both parties. UPS knows the market for our line of C series heavy-duty horizontal lathes and VT series heavy-duty vertical lathes as well as anyone in the country, and their sales network and service engineers are the best in the business,” says Rafael Boldorini, general manager at Romi USA.

Romi C Series heavy-duty flatbed CNC lathes are built with monoblock cast iron beds. The heavy-duty C Series includes nine models ranging from the C 1100H with a 28" (720 mm) swing over cross slide and a 72 hp main motor to the massive C 2600H with an 80" (2,030 mm) swing over cross slide and a 155 hp main motor.  All key components of Romi machine tools are designed and built in-house for complete control and assurance of manufacturing quality.

"Romi represents the top of the line when it comes to this product category. The quality and value we see in their heavy-duty lathes compare with the best in the world. We sell through 40 distribution partners, so we expect to show our customers why Romi should be their first choice," says Danie Jacobs, president of United Precision Services.

"UPS is much more than a distributor partner. They're also a customer who uses our machines, as well as many other brands of machine tools. They know which machines perform well because they use them on a daily basis,” added Boldorini. “Our agreement with them speaks volumes about the hands-on experience they have had with Romi machines."
