“The opportunity to work with MCM comes at an exciting time with strong growth in the aerospace sector within the UK and Ireland. MCM already has an incredible reputation across mainland Europe (and beyond) with installations in many of the leading aerospace OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers.

MCM was founded in 1978 in the Piacenza, Italy  and has developed markets globally in the Aerospace, Automotive, Industrial, Energy, Oil & Gas and Defence sectors. The machining centres it produces are highly rigid constructions that operate to accuracies of 4-5 micron with excellent dynamics to create performance-oriented technical solutions for customers. The machines range from the 800 mm cube of the Clock machines family  to over 6000 mm of the Jet Five machines family. Over 70 per cent of the machines it manufactures end up in flexible manufacturing cells, with MCM being the single point of contact for customers throughout the manufacture and integration process.

“We are very excited to enter this new partnership with RK International Machine Tools, as we see good potential for our machines and systems within the UK, especially in the aerospace market. The expertise and experience with RK International will complement our skills and knowledge perfectly.” Stefano Tirelli, Sales Manager, MCM
