“Dengensha Europe has established an enviable reputation for automatic feeding products and this training centre and showroom is another step towards Dengensha becoming the leading resistance welding supplier in Europe.
“I would like to thank Mr John Mason, Managing Director and all the staff of Dengensha Europe for their efforts during the last year and building this new facility.
“Our goal is to develop innovative products and outstanding services to help customers meet the challenges of a fiercely competitive global marketplace. The significant investment in this new showroom and training facility demonstrates our long term commitment to our customers in the European market, and as a result we expect to see a significant increase in our share of the resistance welding market,” said Mr Shimizu.

John Mason, Managing Director of Dengensha Europe explained the importance of the new facilities, “We have developed over the years the resources, experience and technical talent required to help our customers meet their manufacturing challenges. We have also recognised a big demand for training facilities due to the new advances in technology to help our customers increase productivity. With this new training centre and showroom customers can visit and see first hand the new range of machinery in operation and send their respective staff on training courses prior to machinery being delivered.”
“The past 18 months have of course been difficult for the manufacturing industry however we have started to see an increase in orders largely due to the new and exciting range of machinery we have now developed and with the new training facilities we are looking forward to the new year ahead,” added John.
