Mazak Corporation is the North American manufacturing, sales and support arm of the leading international machine tool builder, Yamazaki Mazak Corporation. Mazak produces machine tools and systems for the precision machining of metal parts, including CNC turning centers, horizontal and vertical machining centers, multi-tasking machining centers, turnkey cells, and software solutions. With the expansion of the North American market, Mazak required expanded facilities in Canada, and contracted with Maple Reinders to design and build a Technology Centre in Cambridge, Ontario, on a site proposed by Maple Reinders. Mazak’s new facility includes management and sales offices, and a general administration area, in addition to an 8,000 square foot training centre. Special construction features include a drive-in truck bay, overhead crane and compressed air to facilitate the installation, operation and removal of training equipment. The building is finished in an attractive combination of glass curtainwall, architectural precast panels and masonry veneer. Interior finishes include granite and ceramic tile flooring, upgraded accent lighting and a building security system.
