The XYZ Machine Tools Clearance Day at its Devon showroom and headquarters generated significant sales on the day of over £760,000, with 17 machines sold on the day covering everything from a trainer lathe through to the company’s flagship UMC-5X simultaneous five-axis machining centre.

“The day was extremely busy with more companies attending than normal, which is a great encouragement given the ongoing uncertainty and farce that is Brexit. During the day we had visitors from 27 companies attending, which is in excess of what we normally see. More encouraging was the fact that 12 of those placed orders on the day, with potential for more sales in the coming weeks. The diversity of machines being ordered was also encouraging, with the UMC-5X being sold to a customer that had shown interest when we initially launched the machine over 12 months ago, just showing that it pays to be patient.

Nigel Atherton, Managing Director, XYZ Machine Tools.

The XYZ clearance days are an opportunity for customers to secure a great deal on ex-showroom stock as it is replaced every 12-18 months to keep the machines on display as up-to-date as possible.
