Record breaking day at Slough
Interest was strong with orders taken for machines across the XYZ Machine Tools range.
XYZ Machine Tools officially opened its new showroom at Slough on the 12th July and the event drew customers from far and wide resulting in a record-breaking day for machine sales. From the moment the doors opened at 9:00, the showroom was a hive of activity with customers keen to see the wide range of XYZ machines in action.
“This is the best one-day Open House that we have ever seen, with over 50 companies taking the time to visit XYZ and see what was on offer. By lunchtime we had already taken orders for 15 machines with the afternoon proving just as popular, with a further eight machine orders being taken, while the total value of sales was just shy of £800,000,” says Nigel Atherton, managing director, XYZ Machine Tools.
This new showroom is conveniently located off the M4 motorway and is available for customer demonstrations and training, being a relatively short drive for customers from across the south east and central England, with most being less than a two-hour drive away. Populated with a wide range of XYZ Machine Tools including a selection of ProtoTRAK controlled mills and lathes along with Siemens controlled machining and turning centres, the new facility adds to XYZ Machine Tools’ already comprehensive customer support capability.
“The attendance at this opening event shows that we have selected a good location,” says Nigel Atherton. “The convenient location will allow more customers the opportunity to easily see demonstrations of XYZ machines as well as receive training once they have made a purchase.”
