Welcome to the ETC updates!

In 2019 we are celebrating a decade of success of our European Technology Centre (ETC). Located at our European Headquarters in Worcester, the ETC first opened its doors in 2009, and in that time we have hosted more than 33,000 visitors.

The ETC is home to many Mazak events, customer meetings, seminars and training. It is a busy showroom showcasing the latest technology of Mazak and its partners.

In this section of our website, we will be providing regular updates about the current machines displayed inside, new arrivals,  event announcements and anything else taking place in the ETC.
