On November 19 and 20, 2015, Marubeni Citizen-Cincom (MCC) hosted an open house to celebrate the expansion of its North American headquarters in Allendale, New Jersey. The guest list of almost 300 was made up of customers, executives from Japan, distributors and current employees from as far west as California and as far south as Florida. This expansion came on the heels of MCC’s new Mexican office that opened in Querétaro the previous month.
The two-day event showcased the expansion of the New Jersey facility that went from 26,000 square feet to more than 42,000 square feet. The expansion increases warehouse capacity, adds office space and includes a machine tool showroom, quality/inspection area, 30-seat conference room, workout area and break room. It also makes room for a large job shop that handles in-house repairs on spindles, ballscrews, motors and more.
“One of the main reasons for the expansion is to serve our customers with parts from one central location,” says MCC’s executive vice president and COO John Antignani. “The new service warehouse now holds more than $20 million in its parts inventory.”
During the open house there was a celebratory presentation of the company’s 10,000th machine being delivered. Representatives of Norman Nobel, the buyer of the machine, were on hand for the special recognition. They were presented with a brass rhythm clock made by Citizen and a commemorative plaque. Norman Nobel is a Cleveland, Ohio-based company that serves the medical device, orthopedic and implant market.
