The company is export-oriented and has expanded its operations by opening sales offices in nine other countries (2006 data) throughout America, Europe and Asia. It is considered a leader in its field of high-end precision griders that are used in many industries including aeronautics and the automotive production and has claimed to be the No. 1 supplier of CNC machines in China, Britain and the US.
