Universal Converting Equipment has secured a facility for a showroom and service center in Florida to service its customers in both North and South America.

The new building is in easy travel distance of both the Tampa and Orlando airports,  and is due for completion in March with plans to install a Universal X6 slitting machine, which is designed to slit a wide range of flexible materials, and other equipment in June 2016.

 “North and South America has become our second largest market outside of Europe," says Alan Jones, managing director. "We have invested heavily in developing our X6 slitting machine to be highly productive and reliable with comprehensive diagnostic systems. However, we realize that our ability to provide ongoing support to our customers is vital to ensure that they achieve productivity benefits for years to come. We already offer free telephone and internet based support to our customers to give confidence that we will provide support through the entire life of the machine. Having a local stock of spare parts will increase our ability to react quickly to customer needs."
