Mutoh brings forward local launch after Omnitech collapse

Mutoh Australia said it has taken on a “number of staff previously employed at Omnitech”, with a view to opening its new premises in the Sydney suburb of Artarmon soon.

Marcus Adler, chief operating officer at Mutoh Australia, said that the company had been planning to establish independent local operations “for some time”.

“The unfortunate events surrounding the operations of Omnitech Australia has meant that the transfer of operations to Mutoh Australia has had to take place far sooner than planned,” Adler said.

“Mutoh Australia had to step into the breach, taking over all sales, marketing and service operations from February. That said, thanks to a lot of hard work, our plans were well advanced and with the support of our dealer channel we have successfully covered all the bases.”

Adler said that for Mutoh’s local client base it would be “business as usual”.

“We have a great network of factory trained technicians and dealers across Australia and New Zealand,” he said. “All factory warranties remain and we have more than enough stock and spare parts to meet any request

“In addition, we are about to receive another large shipment of parts and materials from Japan which will coincide with the opening of our new head office. The point is, our clients have nothing to worry about.”

Kazuo Takeuchi, manager of Mutoh’s Customer Support/Service Centre in Japan, has been drafted in as an operational director of Mutoh Australia’s Technical Services.
