“If it goes on like this of course we will be very satisfied with this fair,” comments Patrick Almquist, sales manager for DMG MORI Sweden. 

Just after closing on Wednesday DMG MORI still had lots of visitors at its stand – so many that all the chairs were taken. Almquist didn’t hide his enthusiasm:

“As you can see, this is totally fantastic. We’ve already sold two really big machines, a milling machine with a lathe function and a lathe, and we’ve got many new leads. This is just what we want.

“There’s been a terrific visitor presence throughout the day and so far we’re very satisfied with our investment in exhibiting at this trade fair. We’ll definitely be back.” 

The Japanese-German firm of DMG MORI develops high-tech lathes and milling machines as well as advanced technology. At Elmia Machine Tools its focus lay on such things as the CELOS® control platform, Industry 4.0 and ECOLINE’s machine scope. The company also offers its customers integrated solutions for energy management.

“We had high expectations for the fair and can say that they’ve been met,” Almquist says. 

DMG MORI has more than 275,000 original spare parts and over 7,000 employees who contribute to the company’s success. The company has 159 international sales and service locations in 57 countries, with head offices in Tokyo and Winterthur in Switzerland.
