Citizen Machinery Europe is intended to mainly concentrate on sales and service as well as the realization of custom-tailored applications in the future.
The aim is to expand the market position in Germany as well as other European markets. Next to this, a European Technology Center is established which is meant to take over development and design as well as the used-machine business.
