OKUMA contest winner awards: METAL SOMET SA

The winner of my OKUMA contest is more than 10 years old

Following the competition that launched last year via Newsletter No.1 / NOV.2021: “Are you proud that your old OKUMA machine is in good condition?” we had several participants who sent us pictures of their OKUMA machines. From all the participants whose machine tools are in very good condition three winning companies were selected, METAL SOMET SA was one of them, so we went to their headquarters to congratulate them and hand them the diploma and the award ISCAR voucher on the amount of 5000 EURO for machine tools.
