Dear Valued Customer,

Welcome to our May newsletter from Okuma Australia and New Zealand. 

As wholly owned subsidiaries of Okuma Corporation Japan, we closed our financial year in March with pleasing results across both our Australian and New Zealand operations. 

We extend our gratitude to those who selected Okuma as their preferred CNC machine tool over the past year. It has been our pleasure to support your production growth. 

Over the last twelve (12) months, both Okuma Australia and New Zealand have seen growth and changes as part of our Monozukuri philosophy (the art of making things better). We have welcomed additional team members across various areas of our operations to ensure continued strong support for our valued customers. While finding the most appropriate staff suited to our needs remains a challenge, our success rates are high and positive. In the upcoming year, we plan to enhance our resources, particularly in after-sales support, focussing on replacing apprentices who have transitioned into full trade roles and remain employed with us. Our commitment and dedication to nurturing young talent and facilitating career progression for our team members remains a key focus. 

In this newsletter, you will find updates on key employment placements in Okuma Management and Service. We are optimistic about these changes and, most importantly, how they benefit our customers. 
Our product offerings range from our famous Affordable Excellence 2-axis CNC lathes and 3-axis machining centre machines through to our very large Double Column Machining Centres (7 of which were purchased during the past year). If you believe our solutions align with your needs, please feel free to reach out to any Sales member of our team for assistance.  

We wish you all continued success in your business endeavours for the upcoming year and beyond. 

Yours sincerely, 

Dean McCarroll 
Managing Director
Okuma Australia & New Zealand
