MC Machinery brings in big crowd for its grand opening

MC Machinery Systems hosted more than 1,000 customers, visitors and team members for the grand opening of their new headquarters last month. The event was one of the first opportunities for customers and partners to explore the 175,000-square-foot facility, which includes a 50,000-square-foot showroom among many other modern amenities.

In addition to touring the new facility, attendees enjoyed a traditional Drum & Sake Ceremony, a go-kart track, food trucks, a beer garden and a live band. MC Machinery experts and key vendors hosted 10 different seminars on best practices and trends in modern metal processing—approximately half of all attendees went to at least one session.

“Having such a large and engaged group come to celebrate this important milestone in our company’s history was very exciting,” says Patrick Simon, Senior Marketing Manager, MC Machinery. “The successful event only added to the enthusiasm around here about the future.”

Several key North American executives were joined by global leaders from the Mitsubishi family of companies for the Drum & Sake Ceremony, including Tomoo Yoshikawa, CEO and President; Yoshikazu Miyata, Executive Officer in Charge of Factory Automation Systems, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation; and Terutora Urano, Division COO, Industrial Machinery Business Division, Mitsubishi Corporation.

The new headquarters is located near Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport at 85 Northwest Point Blvd., Elk Grove Village, Illinois.
