Fives Giddings & Lewis to equip FRCE (USA) in the Defense industry
New order for a Giddings & Lewis Horizontal Boring Mill to equip FRCE (USA) in the Defense industry
In early January, Fives Giddings & Lewis received a new machine order from Hartech Group (US Government contractor serving as Fives full “Turn-Key” representative) to equip Fleet Readiness Center East (Cherry point, NC) with a T-Bed machine.
FRCE Cherry Point is the North Carolina's largest maintenance, repair, overhaul and technical services provider with more than 4,000 military, civilian and contract workers.
This MCP155 T-Bed machine will feature a Tilt/Rotary Table with 1600 mm (62.99 in) pallets, a 2-Speed, 155 (6.1 in) mm headstock and a 40-position tool changer. It is planned to be installed at FRCE Cherry Point plant in the beginning of 2024.
Congratulations to the team for this order, which has been in the works since 2019, especially to Mark Huhn, Sr. Technical Sales Engineer and Dan Flynn, Regional Sales Manager!
