Okuma Customer Tour

Okuma Australia’s Steve Norbis and Mark Richards who attended JIMTOF also took one day to host our customers on a visit to the DreamSites at Okuma Corporation, Nagoya Japan.

Our customers and Okuma representative travelled via Bullet Train to Nagoya early Monday morning to experience the hospitality and technology Okuma Corporation has to offer.

Mark Richards, commented, “The Okuma tour of Kani and Oguchi sites was impressive.  First we saw the Kani plant.  Manufacturing to almost full capacity impressed all our visitors with the seriously large machines being built, special purpose and high value.  The new Kani 6 factory is well and truly underway and should be finished mid next year.

He also added, “The Okuma DreamSite 1 & 2 in Nagoya are truly amazing factories showcasing Okuma’s technology and productivity with their Robot cell and FMS systems.
