"Kyal Machine Tools has a long history of selling and servicing high-end machine tools such as ours,” says Thomas Dolan, vice president - sales and marketing, Mitsui Seiki USA. “Their capabilities and reputation among many common clients made this decision ideal to support our ongoing business in the region. This is a win for our customers in the UK and Ireland, as Kyal is a first-class operation aligned with our own superior standards for precision machine-tool building, applications engineering and ongoing support.”

Kyal Machine Tools was established in 1985 and has been owned and managed by Simon Pollard and his wife Hilary since 2006.

“What makes Kyal different from other machine-tool distributors in the region is that we only represent the very best machines in their classes, ones that offer application-oriented, high-value solutions for machining critical components in aerospace, oil and gas, energy, automotive, medical, and other high-precision sectors,” says Pollard. “These types of machine tools offer the greatest economic advantages for our customer base. As such, Mitsui Seiki complements our offerings very well.”
