Maier Commitment, Product and Presence is Expanded in North America

New product development, sales and support to provide users enhanced, innovative precision turning solutions.

Sudbury, MA USA (October 8, 2007) - Methods Machine Tools has recently ratcheted up efforts to market Maier, a leading German manufacturer of precision Swiss-type turning centers, throughout North America via an expanded, innovative product offering, new sales management and dedicated application support. Maier Machines are exclusively imported and distributed by Methods Machine Tools, a leading machine tool / technology source headquartered in Sudbury, MA with locations throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Although a relatively new brand to the industry, in less than a decade, Maier has established an innovative machine design that has been well received in Europe and beyond. The cornerstone feature of Maier's precise, versatile machines is a unique, 8500 lb solid polymer concrete base which eliminates vibration and ensures an industry leading accuracy of 0.0001" (0.001mm.) The comprehensive Maier Swiss turning line ranges from machines with 4 axes and 11 tool stations for processing simple parts to machines with 15 axes and 38 tool stations for complex production work.

The MLK Linear Automatic series of machines, designed for superior speed / acceleration and accuracy in a compact footprint, was recently introduced to complement the extensive Maier line.

Spearheading the sales team in a newly created position established in July 2007, is 17-year Swiss turning veteran Mr. James Kucharski, Methods National Sales Manager for the Maier line. Mr. Kucharski and an extensive network of application experts, have already increased Maier machine sales with a flurry of new orders.

"With an expanded product line absolutely at the forefront of Swiss turning technology, seasoned sales expertise and application support second to none, the Maier brand is now poised to aggressively play a leading role in the industry," said Mr. Scott Mclver, Chairman of Methods Machine Tools. "We are looking forward to bringing Maier's innovative technology to precision machining users throughout North America."

Maier machines are also installed in Methods state-of-the-art Technology Centers which are strategically located in the U.S. and Canada, providing convenient customer access for application tests, training and support.

Maier machines have been installed in 26 countries worldwide. Manufacturing headquarters are located in Wehingen, Germany where machines are designed, built and certified to high engineering and quality standards.

Methods Machine Tools, Inc. has been a supplier of precision machine tools and accessories for over 45 years. Methods is the exclusive North American source for Maier Swiss Precision Turning Centers, providing installation, parts, service and training through a nationwide network of dealers.
