We have talked with Marc Schins, Executive Director – Advanced Sales & Marketing, Gil-Mar Manufacturing about the MODIG solutions.
THE CHOICE OF MODIG
Gil-Mar chose Modig because they offered a flexible solution for machining complex aluminum extrusions. In our interviews with existing customers, they were very complimentary of how the machine worked, and what support Modig gave to help with any issues.
