FFG Russia continues machine tool tradition of FFG brands

Well established sales and service organization shows live machining and full FFG Werke GmbH portfolio at Metalloobrabotka show in Moscow.

Moscow / Goeppingen, June 16, 2014 – Since the 19th century, FFG Werke GmbH’s machine tool brands have been delivering turning, milling and gear manufacturing equipment to Russia. Already in 1893, VDF Boehringer produced 115 lathes for Russian Railways. The successful cooperation has been steadily going on, with over 600 machines having been installed in the past 20 years. Since 2008, the German brands have a local branch in Russia, enhancing sales, service and support in all Russian regions. This fomer MAG branch has now been taken over by FFG and renamed FFG Russia.

At the leading Russian metalworking show Metalloobrabotka, which takes place June 16-20 at the Moscow fairground Expocentr, FFG Russia will make its first appearance under new name, presenting the enhanced portfolio. Says Sergey Gerasimov, President at FFG Russia: “With the comprehensive technology knowhow, the broad scope of applications for the most dynamic industrial branches in Russia, and the economic strength of the FFG group, we are a reliable and versatile partner. Metalloobrabotka is a good occasion to make our customers familiar with the enhanced capacities of our group.”  With live horizontal and vertical turning, displays of the leading milling and gear manufacturing equipment of the brands and a team of technology experts from Russia and Germany, visitors to the show will be able to get highly qualified advice on manufacturing tasks of all kinds.  

Taking over the Russian branch, FFG Werke GmbH is further enhancing its global presence, after the acquisition of FFG Asia Pacific in Seoul/Korea and the establishment of a partnership with Star SU, a US based machine tool and precision tool company with branches all over the Americas.
