The new partnership is the result of the increased interest of the British companies in the 5axis moving column machining centers manufactured by IBARMIA.
The continuous growth of IBARMIA’s success in Europe, North America and Asia has also attracted companies in the UK that constantly visited IBARMIA at various international machine tool exhibitions asking about the wide range of solutions, local representation and technical support.
