Users in Britain and Ireland of Index and Traub CNC lathes, as well as Hermle, SHW and F Zimmermann machining centres that require service or repair, will now be directed to Robin Matthews, newly appointed Service Manager at Kingsbury Machine Tools, sole agent for all five German machine tool builders.

Following an apprenticeship as an electronics maintenance technician at Aerostructures Hamble (then BAe Hamble), Robin continued to work there for nearly 10 years as part of a team maintaining all of the CNC plant.
