Okuma Australia & New Zealand has a very consistent and strong employee engagement.  Many of our employees have been with us for more than 10 years.

One of our longest serving employees (26 years) Leigh Milvain, National Technical Manager will be retiring on the 9th April 2020. 


We are very pleased to advise our customers that Karl Corry has accepted the newly created position of National Technology Manager, based in New South Wales.

Karl's main focus for this new role will be on Okuma's own Technologies including OSP functionality and Automation.  He will also work closely with the Okuma National Applications team to enhance every customer's Okuma experience.

Karl Corry is already a familiar face to many of our customers Australia-wide.

Starting as an Applications Engineer over seven years ago, Karl has spent much of his time assisting our expansive customer-base across New South Wales. 

More recently, Karl has been a key contributor in supporting our Queensland branch along with our Queensland team, Steve Norbis, John Baker & Kerry Hay.

He has also attended and successfully presented at the 2018 Global Meeting at Okuma Corporation in Japan.

During his time at Okuma Australia he has become a very well respected Senior Applications Engineer within Okuma, locally and globally.


When he’s not working at Okuma, he uses his limited free time on a rigorous training regime and competing on the world stage in Clay Target Shooting.

We trust that over the next several months our customers will not only see a smooth transition but will also benefit from this additional resource in our Technology area.

“Okuma’s new and advancing technologies offer our customers huge opportunities to improve, automate and grow their businesses.  I’m excited to explore, implement and train our customers with the National Applications team to achieve every customer’s full potential,” commented Karl Corry, National Technology Manager.
