We are pleased to jointly announce that Nakashimada Engineering Works, Ltd. (NAKASHIMADA) will partner with NME National Machinery Europe GmbH as their agent for machine sales and customer service in Germany, United Kingdom, Scandinavia, Belgium, Ireland and other select countries primarily in Eastern Europe.
The agency agreement with NME for NAKASHIMADA products and services encompasses quotations and sales of new machines, spare parts, field service, as well as rebuilds. Sales assistance and representation for new machines commences immediately. At a later date in 2016 to be determined, field service and spare parts fulfilment will be initiated by NME out of National Machinery’s European headquarters facility in Nuernberg, Germany. NME personnel will be trained to handle customer service related to spare parts and field service. The plan is to have storage of certain NAKASHIMADA spare parts inventory at NME in Nuernberg in order to provide timely service to customers.
NAKASHIMADA will continue to base a Japanese technician in Germany, who in the future will be domiciled at NME’s facility in Nuernberg and will supervise the training of NME service personnel.
At this time, until further notice of full transition of NAKASHIMADA customer service to NME personnel, Ms. Narumi Fukui should be contacted.
Based in Fukuoka, Japan, NAKASHIMADA, established in 1911, is a global leader in smaller diameter headers, cold formers, and warm formers. National Machinery LLC, established in 1874, with world headquarters in Tiffin, Ohio (USA), manufactures a full line of mid and large diameter cold formers, as well as warm formers and bearing headers.
Masahiro Nakashimada, president of Nakashimada Engineering Works, Ltd. commented, “As the global market becomes even closer connected, we see good opportunities to cooperate, so we have agreed to team-up again to offer the best service possible to our customers.” National Machinery’s CEO, Andrew Kalnow, further explained: “We at National believe in a customer-centric approach. This means that we like to offer customers a range of machine choices so that the customer can decide in the end what best meets their full criteria set. The addition of Nakashimada products to NME’s portfolio of offerings is most welcomed to this end.”
