Heller Machine Tools Partners with Ellison Technologies in the U.S.
Heller Machine Tools has moved to both direct and distribution sales and service in the North American market by partnering with Ellison Technologies.
Heller Machine Tools has moved to both direct and distribution sales and service in the North American market, providing customers with a more local interface that can provide sales, engineering and customer support via a distribution network and still maintain existing direct key account business. The company announces a distribution partnership with Ellison’s Advanced Technologies Business Unit in the U.S., with specific representation in the following states: Alabama, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Mississippi, Nebraska, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
Ellison Technologies is part of Mitsui & Co., Ltd. of Japan, which has allowed the company to increase its business foot print, as a provider of advanced machining solutions to the North American metal cutting manufacturers and their global affiliates. The company’s priority is to introduce technologies that can strengthen the customer’s ability to compete in the markets they serve. Whether the solution involves a single stand-alone machine, multi-process equipment, or a fully integrated manufacturing system with automation, the goal remains the same: to optimize production throughput and component quality at the lowest per-part manufacturing cost.
With Heller’s new distribution partnerships, the company will be introduced to new markets and business sectors, offering high quality performance machine tools. In addition to its newest partner Ellison Technologies, the company’s current distribution partners include Ellison Machinery, Maruka and Compumachine, offering complete coverage in North America.
