Following the re-establishment of the Okuma Brisbane office last year, we have further expanded our commitment to our Queensland customers by employing an additional Mechanical Service Engineer.

We are pleased to announce that Chris Neil will join Steve, John and Kerry to expand our Brisbane team.


“With a good range of advanced technology machine orders already in hand and an ever increasing level of enquiries in the pipeline, we welcome the increase in resources.  This ensures our Queensland team can provide the level of service our customers enjoy and have come to expect,” said Steve Norbis, Northern Regional Manager, NSW & QLD.

Chris Neil, Mechanical Engineer – QLD

Chris started his career in the Machine Tool Industry as a mature aged apprentice several years ago with a prominent Brisbane company.  He has a great deal of experience on an extensive range of CNC machines including a large variety of Okuma models from all ages and other brands.

“I have been working on a variety of machines for many years but I believe Okuma machines are the leaders.  I feel privileged to be part of such a well respected team of engineers and excited to get my hands dirty for Okuma and our Queensland customers,” said Chris.
