(MASCO), a full-service distributor of metal-cutting machine tools has won an “Outstanding Achievement” award from Kitamura Machinery.

The City of Industry, California-based company distributes Kitamura CNC equipment throughout the Pacific Southwest. Dave Lucius, vice president of sales at Kitamura Machinery of USA said that 2020 presented formidable challenges for the machine tool industry. “The COVID-19 pandemic limited most face-to-face contact with our customers,” said Lucius. “Travel restrictions combined with 737 MAX issues at Boeing, devastated [the] commercial aerospace industry. Foreign oil price wars hurt [the] energy segment and the automotive market remained in a slump. With that said, the MASCO team exceeded goals in unit sales, sales revenue, and market share. This is a remarkable accomplishment.”

In addition to Kitamura, the MASCO team represents products from Hurco, Takumi, Okamoto, Jet Edge, Hanwha, ProCobots, and Sisma. Founded in 1938, MASCO provides service and support to the entire range of the manufacturing spectrum, including aerospace, defense, medical and dental, recreation, computer component makers, and job shops.
