DMG MORI is a popular name in the field of integrated technological solutions – and even more popular when it comes to innovative technologies that help manufacturers reduce their costs.
The unique approach that DMG MORI has brings together the best of the Japanese and German manufacturing tradition. Both Japan and Germany belong to the leaders of machine tool building sector thanks to incredible precision and high quality production. DMG is a name linked to a vast history in engineering, combining experience of Mori Seiki (68 years’ experience) and GILDEMEISTER (148 years).
Aside from engineering, DMG has been setting new standards in new technologies, developing trend-setting products that set the brand apart from the competition. The technological standards that have been set by DMG machine tools always ensure the maximum operating efficiency and excellence when it comes to meeting the demands and strengthening the performance capabilities.
DMG MORI begins with the cooperation between two reputable brands in the engineering industry – GILDEMEISTER from Germany and the Japanese Mori Seiki. The long tradition, quality of workmanship and excellence is what brings together these two brands – and what helps them find a common target.
As of 2009, Mori Seiki together with GILDEMEISTER begin common activity in sales and service in Turkey and South East Asia (Thailand, Indonesia, Taiwan) – to later (2010) combine their activities and penetrate the market in USA and India. After their success and increased profits, the two brands start combining their activities in Europe and the Mori Seiki holds 20.1% of the voting rights of GILDEMEISTER.
The name DMG MORI, however, comes no sooner than 2011 – when the first joint trade fair of DMG MORI at the EMO in Hannover is being held – and when the new joint development is presented. The newly founded company has headquarters in Switzerland and directs all sales and service activities of the European DMG MORI companies.
The strategic cooperation between the brands intensifies over the years, letting the company expand and further strengthen its sales everywhere around the world. The committee from Switzerland directs and coordinates all activities of both companies and presents the new joint machine design in 18 different locations around the world.
From 2013, there is one brand for the world – DMG MORI SEIKI Company Limited, and DMG MORI for the sales and service organization. As soon as the new Global Headquarters in Tokyo are opened, new milestones are set and further strategic development is being introduced.
Aside from its strategic approach on the global market, DMG Mori strengthens its presence in Russia with the inauguration of the state-of-art production and assembly plants in Ulyanovsk, seeing it as a major advantage over many competitors. As of 2016, the company has numerous headquarters, technology and solution centers around the world.
