Seco Joins Mazak VIP Technology PartnershipProgram

The Mazak technology partners program brings together industry-leading technology providers to collaborate on R&D, process development and educational opportunities for North American manufacturers.

Seco Tools has joined Mazak’s Value Inspired Partners (VIP) program. Created to promote higher levels of solutions for manufacturers, the Mazak technology partners program brings together industry-leading technology providers to collaborate on R&D, process development and educational opportunities for North American manufacturers. Seco is just the second cutting tool provider to be certified into the program.

“Today’s manufacturer is faced with a broad spectrum of technologies, all evolving at a tremendous rate,” says Mike Parker, Director of Marketing and ProductDevelopment at Seco. “On an increasing basis, it is the responsibility of technology providers to work together to ensure that new innovations work together to provide the best possible performance. Mazak’s VIP program represents a bold and aggressive commitment to this goal. Seco is honored to have been certified for participation in the program and proud to join efforts with other industry leaders.”

To attain membership in the VIP program, a company must demonstrate that its commitment to manufacturers exceeds the traditional supplier relationship. Seco’s history of working closely with manufacturers to improve their processes for maximum productivity and cost savings played an important role in the company’s certification into the Mazak program.

Seco provides innovative cuttings tools and toolholders for milling, turning and holemaking across a wide range of industries. Globally, the company’s products are applied to some of the most demanding applications in metals and composites in the aerospace, medical, automotive, oil & gas, wind and general machining industries.
