Greetings from Germany

As I write this I’m in our booth at the METAV Machine Tool Show in Dusseldorf, Germany, along with our European sales manager, Thomas Neumann, who is based out of our office in Vienna, Austria.

What we’re hearing here is that more German manufacturers are now looking at sourcing parts from China, so the timing is good. (This hasn’t been the case in the past).
