On June 22, Mori Seiki broke ground on a 200,000-square-foot factory to be situated on 14.5 acres in Davis, Calif. The plant will be the company’s first manufacturing facility in North America and will employ between 100 to 150 personnel.
 
At capacity, the new facility will produce as many as 100 units per month, focusing on the new X-Class line of precision machines. “Our initial targets are our horizontal machining centers—the X-Class NHX4000 and NHX5000 Series,” says Mark Mohr, president of DMG/Mori Seiki USA. “Our next product under consideration is the DMU 50 and potentially other X-Class machines.”
 
The addition of a new North American factory is expected to offset any disparity in the exchange rate between the two currencies and would ensure customers the continued quality, precision and value they have come to expect in their machine purchase.
