The safety of our employees, customers, families and visitors remains Marubeni Citizen-Cincom's overriding priority. As the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak continues to evolve and spreads globally, Marubeni Citizen-Cincom is monitoring the situation closely and will periodically update company policy based on current recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and all local, state and federal regulations. At this time, most regulations are restricted to essential businesses. MCC is following CDC guidelines for social distancing and we ask all customers to do the same. Most of our offices and staff are working from home and visiting our offices only as needed. We are executing service as needed in MCC offices, and all of our Distributor Network is doing the same. Our parts department is operating and shipping parts as required.
Marubeni Citizen-Cincom was founded in 1984 to market and service Citizen’s CINCOM family of Swiss-type turning centers. This venture represents the amalgamation of two of Japan’s largest and most highly regarded companies, Marubeni Corporation and Citizen Machinery Co.
Medical manufacturing, like other industries, faces intensive demands for improved productivity. As a result, many manufacturers are focused on achieving greater efficiencies and precision in making small parts. No technology beats Swiss turn when it comes to churning out many small parts. According to Brian Such, executive vice president of Marubeni Citizen-Cincom (MCC), Allendale, N.J., one recent improvement in Swiss machining is the use of modular gear boxes that quadruple the speed of the live tool.
