Omega Foundry Machinery Ltd, Peterborough, U.K., has had strong ties with Japan-based metalcasting equipment maker Sintokogio Ltd. for more than six years. Under a license agreement, Omega has successfully built and marketed the “USR” range of secondary reclamation units. Based on this and to further build upon the relationship, the two companies have formed a strategic alliance.
“Combining [our] strengths will allow us to consolidate existing markets with an improved product portfolio,” said Omega chairman Mark Fenyes, “at the same time expanding into areas that up until now have not been developed due to geographical constraints. These are very exciting times for Omega, and we look forward to further growth with Sintokogio.”
The alliance is intended to increase the range of products manufactured under license by Omega, further penetrate nobake markets, and improve service and support.
