Alex-Tech Machinery Industrial Co., Ltd. was founded back in 1988 as a maker of toolroom lathes. After decades of technological improvement and product expansion, it has emerged as one of Taiwan’s leading manufacturers of CNC lathes and machining centers.
To boost production and gain market share, the company added new equipment and expanded its organizational structure in 1997. At the same time it unveiled, on an 8.700-square-meter site in central Taiwan, the first centrally air-conditioned factory in the island’s CNC machine tool industry. The factory employs advanced machinery from western countries to turn out its high-caliber lathes, including CNC five-face machining centers from SHW in Germany, vertical boring and milling machines from Yasda in Japan, and grinding machines from Sumitomo, also in Japan.
In 1998, Mighty USA Inc. of the United States invested in Alex-Tech, significantly fostering Alex-Tech’s growth and strength. Now, Alex-Tech ships its machines globally, with the United States, Latin America, Europe, Southeast Asia, and Australia as major export outlets.
Alex-Tech’s product line encompasses a variety of lathes, from small-type precision CNC lathes to large-type precision CNC models. The machines are outfitted with rigid one-piece bodies and compatible designs that boost production efficiency while keeping costs down.
The company owns the complete range of technology it needs to design user-friendly machines and offers a variety of operational mixes to meet different needs. Some of the products are shipped under the company’s own “Alex-Tech” or “Viper” brand; others bear customer brands.
To boost quality and enhance innovation, the company continuously sends technicians to receive advanced training and study market needs in western countries.
