Citizen Machinery Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Miyota-cho, Kitasaku-gun, Nagano Prefecture, Japan, President: Keiichi Nakajima) announced on May 31 that CITIZEN MACHINERY ASIA CO., LTD. ("Citizen Machinery Asia"), has achieved 20,000 units in cumulative shipments of NC automatic lathes. On the day of the event, we invited customers, dealers, and business partners to hold a commemorative ceremony.

Citizen Machinery Asia is one of our important manufacturing bases, which was established in 2001 as the first overseas production factory for Cincom brand products. At the time of its founding, it was producing products for the ASEAN region, but gradually expanded the number of production models and achieved cumulative shipments of 10,000 units in 2015. Currently, we are shipping mainly low- and medium-priced products to sales bases around the world, and we have achieved cumulative shipments of 20,000 NC automatic lathes. With the aim of building a stable supply system for further business expansion in the future, we are currently conducting the sixth expansion work, which is scheduled to be completed this fall. As our main factory that can produce and supply globally, we will make further efforts to meet the needs of our customers.

On the same day, Citizen Machinery Asia held an opening ceremony for a new showroom. In order to expand sales in the ASEAN and South Asia regions, we will support processing technology and set up an area where you can experience smart factories that utilize "alkapplysolution" and automated products. We build a sales and service system so that we can respond in detail to customer requests.
