Saikuni Manufacturing Co., Ltd and Gleason Works (US) have made an OEM
contract for Saikuni's Spiral Cutter Sharpener NCG-125/205. Gleason Works is a
giant in this field and, because of their maintenance ability and sales power,
Saikuni has decided to have the Gleason name on their machines.
Saikuni will manufacture the Cutter Sharpener for Gleason, and Gleason will then market them to the world and provide maintenance for them. The company is planning to add other machines to the OEM in the future. Saikuni hopes that they can increase their production for the Cutter Sharpeners from three to ten units per year due to this recent contract.
