A message from the CEO



As the end of 2016 fast approaches, I wanted to thank all our customers and partners for another successful year.

We were proud to preview the new TX7 Linear machine at IMTS as we believe it will be a real game-changer in the market. Built upon the industry benchmark TX7+, the TX7 Linear has been updated with ANCA’s latest innovative developments and incorporates new technologies to enhance performance. These include the LinX linear motor and a new user control panel with a touchscreen monitor and tilt adjust to suit any operator height. Look out for its official release in 2017.

To ensure we continue to supply the best possible customer service, we announced the expansion of our Wixom, Michigan plant and opened a new office in India. When the works are finished, the Wixom plant will have an expanded machine demonstration and customer training area, as well as more capacity in our inventory and spare parts warehouse.

Continuing the theme of investment, we saw the final stages of the implementation of a new global ERP system for ANCA’s supply chain with the introduction of the QAD software – enabling better, more efficient delivery to our customers.

As we look towards 2017, I thank all of you for your ongoing support as it is our customers who make ANCA a world leader in its field and I look forward to working with you for many years to come.
