Dugard Ltd has become the sole UK and Ireland sales and distribution outlet for the Kitamura brand of machine tools.
The arrival of the Kitamura brand is a huge coup, especially as it was the Japanese manufacturer that sought out the sales, service and distribution expertise of Dugard to enhance its footprint in the UK market. Dugard has certainly jumped on the quality of the brand, selling two machines in the first two weeks of the agency agreement, with dozens more enquiries flooding in.
The Kitamura range includes horizontal and vertical machining centres, including five-axis models, as well as the double-column Bridgecenter series of machining centres for large components. Product sales manager Colin Thomson says: “Kitamura will outperform the majority of high-end brands in the market, whether for precision, productivity, capability or flexibility. By choosing to work in partnership with Dugard, Kitamura now has access to our service support network, which delivers unparalleled levels of expertise and response times. This is already seeing existing Kitamura users in the UK approaching Dugard to find out more.”
