With immediate effect, Whitehouse Machine Tools has been appointed to sell and service in the UK and Irish markets the vertical- and horizontal-spindle machining centres supplied by Toyoda Machinery Europe GmbH, based in Krefeld, Germany.
A spokesperson for the company commented, “We decided to award the agency to Whitehouse Machine Tools partly due to the high level of service it is able to provide customers.
“The agent also has a strong applications engineering capability, which is important to us. The gear skiving process on Toyoda machining centres, for instance, is a good example of a technology that requires a high level of engineering support.”
Tim Whitehouse, Managing Director of Whitehouse Machine Tools, Kenilworth added, “The Toyoda range includes machining centres with pallet sizes up to 1,600 mm and extensive automation options, which sits neatly alongside our Japanese-built Brother 30-taper turret machines and mid-capacity machining centres from Spinner, Germany and Averex, Taiwan.”
