“Our grand opening provided us a platform to celebrate the many new endeavors taking place with Ellison in the Southeast,” said Bob Johnson, President of Ellison Technologies Southeast division. “We showcased new builder partnerships; new relationships with manufacturers across the Southeast; and our brand-new state-of-the-art facility built with our customers’ needs in mind. We are very thankful for the many manufacturers and suppliers that joined us and helped us celebrate.”
The 2-day grand opening event featured live demonstrations from Ellison Southeast’s builder partners: Doosan Machine Tools America, Star CNC Machine Tool Group, NTC America and Nikon Metrology, Inc. And included the #18 M&M’s NASCAR on display for customers to take pictures with and see parts Joe Gibbs Racing makes for all their cars on Doosan machine tools.
The new Ellison facility provides all manufacturers across the Southeast access to the latest technology from Doosan, Star, NTC, and Nikon; including training and development. In addition, the tech center was designed with an advanced electronic system that gives customers participating in training courses the ability to work and train freely throughout all aspects of the facility, including: the customer-centric showroom with live camera feeds of machine cutting demonstrations, dedicated metrology room, multiple class rooms for hands-on training courses, and an expansive seminar room that features direct internet connection ideal for interactive skills training.
